Macy’s Snow Globe Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Marilyn Wons. Congrats!

For the fourth year in a row, Macy’s is partnering with The Make-A-Wish Foundation® and collecting letters to Santa. For every letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to The Make-A-Wish Foundation®, up to $1 million. I have a cousin that has actually used The Make-A-Wish Foundation, so this is charity that we stand behind. Inspired by The New York Sun’s famous “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” editorial from 1897, Macy’s stores across the country feature letter-writing Believe Stations and Santa Mail letterboxes for believers of all ages to write their letters to Santa.  As a special treat in stores this year, believers of all ages can take their photos with the characters from the animated holiday classic, “Yes, Virginia.” Visit any Macy’s Believe Station to pose for holiday photos with Virginia and her friends – and don’t miss Macy’s celebrated Santalands to pose with Santa himself!

Using new augmented reality technology, customers with IOS and select Android smartphones can download the “Macy’s Believe-o-Magic” application that allows them to unlock the magic to see and interact with Virginia, Ollie and their friends. You can step in the frame and take a photo, which can also be uploaded into a holiday card template to share via e-mail or Facebook. You can also preview the magic at home by downloading the application and printing out the marker. When you point the “Macy’s Believe-o-Magic” camera at the marker, you’ll see an animated Virginia ice skating right in your home!

To help you get in the holiday spirit, I have arranged for one lucky reader of mine to win a a Macy’s Spode Snow Globe. All you have to do is leave me a comment below sharing your favorite Santa memory (whether Santa surprised and delighted your kids or made your dreams come true as a child)!

This giveaway will end on December 16th at 12:01 am and is for US residents. Good luck!

  1. My favorite Santa memory was when I was about six and it was Christmas eve night. I could not fall asleep and then I heard something on the roof of our house. To this day I believe it was him!

  2. Making cookies to set out for Santa – we used to decorate them with different frosting and sprinkles and whatever!

  3. Santa brought me a dream dollhouse when I was seven. It has been my favorite and most memorable for many reasons and that was one of the reasons. :)

  4. My favorite Santa memory is when my mom use to take me to the mall to get my picture taken and I would bring a long list of toys I wanted and read it to him hoping he would bring them all.

  5. My fave memory going to visit Santa at the mall, but not understanding why there was more than 1 Santa at the Mall… then accepting it was Santas brother.

  6. We wrapped the whole livingroom once and had Santa glitter with a note telling our kids Merry Christmas

  7. My favorite memory is when my dad volunteered to play Santa last year at my daughter's daycare. He looked so real and all the kids loved him. One little girl was so excited and told my daughter she had just talked to Santa. My daughter looked at her and asked where he was because all she could see was her grandpa Rob in a beard!

  8. My favorite was watching my dad come through the door on Christmas Eve when I was six. He was the only thing that I asked Santa for and had been stationed on the USS Randolph for almost a year.


  9. What a lovely Christmas app and giveaway! I think my favorite memory of all is of hearing jingle bells outside my window and believing Santa was landing on our roof! (I kater found out that my Dad used to go up and shake those bells for us!) Haha!

Calling all my tofu fans!  Firm and extra firm tofu is packed in water to keep it fresh. However, if you don’t remove the water, your tofu can be pretty plain.  By removing this water, the tofu can absorb the flavors of spices, marinade, or other foods. Tofu is often called a wonder food because […]

Make the holidays feel warmer with SOL ALPACA

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
