I’m writing this post as a member of the Netflix Stream Team and have been compensated for it, but as always all opinions are my own.

Can you believe that Christmas is just a week away? The Christmas cards are flowing in, the house is as decorated as it’s gonna get and I’ve bought a whopping two presents.

Oftentimes at Christmas, I find myself imitating an ostrich. Sticking my head in the sand, almost willing it all not to come. I love the Christmas holiday, but some of the prep beforehand has lost its sparkle.

Call me a Grinch, a Scrooge, the Grand Bahumbug, whatever, I generally don’t get into the Christmas spirit until about Dec. 20. Any time before that my heart is three-times smaller than the average Joe. I think it starts shrinking right after Thanksgiving. The only exceptions is that I consistently go overboard with the Christmas tree, always demanding a real tree every year and this year when we deocorated, I even busted out OnDemand’s Yulelog, with classical Christmas carols.

Anyway, the kind folks at Netflix are always in the Christmas spirit. They’re incredibly kind to their Stream Team members and tis the season, they’ve gifted me the opportunity to give one of my readers a free, year long subscription to Netflix!

There are plenty of ways to enter. You can leave a comment about what you love or hate about the holidays, follow me on Twitter or Instagram, visit my Facebook page or subscribe to my blog. If you already follow me, you can Tweet “I want to win a free Netflix subscription from @sheswrite #StreamTeam,” leave a comment on my Facebook page or one of my Instagram posts.

You can enter as many times as you please and I will announce the winner on Christmas Day.

Happy holidays!

  1. The best thing about the holiday season is the general overall sense of good wishes to and from family and friends as well as traditions we look forward to all year long.

    The worst thing about the holiday season is that it has gotten way to commercialized and seems to be losing some of its meaning. It’s more evident now that I have kids.

    P.S. Thanks for your posts on PDX. I live here and appreciate your take on things around town.

  2. At the point, the kids are the only things keeping my Christmas spirit high. The planning and hosting and worrying about travel or in-laws gets me down each year. I’m a Scrooge, too, I guess. But I always bounce back. Christmas is still my favorite.

  3. The best part of the holidays is having my husband home from work and school for 5 whole days! Plus, I love wrapping presents and watching my daughter’s reactions as she opens her presents!

    The worst part of the holidays is having to host people at my house… The cleaning, cooking, and stressing is too much for me sometimes…
