Today's winner is Heather Buckmaster. Congrats Heather! While we can't promise you a white Christmas, you'll always be able to cherish your memories as a child celebrating in Michigan and we hope a new treasured piece of jewelry from James Avery Artisan Jewelry will help you to do just that. Here's what Heather had to say:

My Christmas memories as a child are like a Hallmark Christmas Movie. We lived in Michigan so every Christmas there was fresh snow on the ground. We'd set out milk and special made cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve. My mother let my sister and I open one gift on Christmas Eve, usually new pajamas. We would put on those new jammies and scurry to bed. The next morning we would jump on our parents bed until they arose and we would sit by the tree separating all the presents and open them one by one. Every year we'd write Santa a letter and every Christmas we had a new letter in return thanking us for being good all year! After opening gifts and eating breakfast we would go outside to play in the newly fallen snow, then make our way in for hot cocoa. Finally finishing the day with a big family dinner! Its so nice to have such perfect memories as a child and I intend to make the same for my children!

Thank you Heather for sharing your memory! If you'd like to share yours or to find out more, click here!
