Today's winner is Troy Compas. Congrats Troy! We hope you love your new treasured piece of jewelry from James Avery Artisan Jewelry! Here's what Troy had to say:

Christmas has always been one of the most exciting times of the year for me. In fact the day after I am sad that all the work and festivities are all over. I love this time of year for many reasons, but I really like that people are more generous, more kind, and more loving, this time of the year more than any other. I remember growing up and never wanting Christmas to end. It is the one day of the year that people come together to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.
One of the very best Christmas memories is the year that my drama department students adopted a family in order to make sure that the family had a magical Christmas. We did not want the family to know who had given the family the gifts and food, but the feeling we all had knowing that the family would not go without. For people who have never helped a family enjoy a Christmas miracle I can honestly tell you that there is no better feeling. Knowing that the kids would have Christmas memories to cherish forever and to share when school started back was the best feeling in the entire world. May all of your hearts be full of love and may you all have a very magical Christmas.

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