Today's winner is Elizabeth Cliburn. Congrats Elizabeth! While we can't send you to Norway for Christmas or bring your father back, you'll always be able to cherish your memories together and we hope a new treasured piece of jewelry from James Avery Artisan Jewelry will help you to do just that. Here's what Elizabeth had to say:
My favorite Christmas memory was from 1973 when I was ten and my family lived in Oslo, Norway. That was the year of the oil embargo crisis. In order to conserve fuel, Norway placed restrictions on driving on the weekends; but that didn't deter my daddy from finding a way to take me with him to get a Christmas tree. We took our 'spark,' which is a sled with a seat - kind of like a dog sled, but without the dogs. The roads were covered in a blanket of white, unmarred with tire tracks, and since there were no vehicles out, there was a beautiful silence to perfectly match the tranquility of the season. We loaded the tree and glided home with our prize. My daddy is gone now, so now more than ever, that remains my favorite Christmas memory.
Thank you Elizabeth for sharing your memory! If you'd like to share yours or to find out more, click here!
