Ho! Ho! Ho! First Friday Giveaway!

Do you know the Christmas song, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas?” The singer proclaims that only a hippopotamus will do—not a crocodile or rhinoceros. Well, I couldn’t find a hippo, but I did find an adorable rhino decked out in a winter scarf that I’m pretty sure will do for this month’s First Friday Giveaway. He is sooo cute. Along with Rex the Rhino, this month’s winner will receive 30 pencils, and an assortment of winter-themed mini erasers and books! So how can you enter for a chance to win this wintry prize pack? Do this!

  1. Christmas is my favorite time of year and I love “Mary Did You Know?” I have had the opportunity to see the songwriter, Mark Lowry perform it at one of his concerts.

  2. White Christmas by Bing Crosby (love the movie Holiday Inn that he performed the song) and The Bells of St. Marys, also by Bing Crosby, also sung in the movie he starred in.

  3. I actually have 2. I love Silent Night because I used to listen to my granny sing it as she played the piano. And I love White Christmas because my nana gave me a love for old movies and White Christmas is my favorite.

  4. My middle son Jimmy loves that song. We bought him a Christmas CD with that song on and got him a stuffed hippo. He named her Henrietta and still has her today
    He’s 37 yrs old.

  5. I love singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with my kindergartners! (Jingle Bells is also a kindergarten favorite!)

  6. Mary Did You Know – Kenny Rogers, Wynonna Judd version
    BUT!! Nothing says it’s Christmas Day like Joy to the World!

  7. Linus and Lucy from A Charlie Brown Christmas – Vince Guaraldi is a favorite of mine, but I also like Sleigh Ride by the Boston Pops Orchestra!
