It's the best gift book of 2007 (USA Today's "Critic's Pick")! It's pretty and cheery and just plain fun! It's Merry Christmas, America! Megawatt Displays Across the USA by Bruce Littlefield!
(Be sure to read my review of this fabulous book here if you haven't already done so)
Not only do you have a chance to win, here on this site, an autographed copy of this fun book, but Bruce has also generously offered to give away a special, vintage, Christmas treasure!
In case you're wondering, that is a pickle ornament from Bruce's very own tree (I still say he's crazy for giving this up *grin*)! When else will you have a chance to say you have a celebrity's ornament on your tree?! (see You Tube video at the bottom of this post to watch Bruce's latest stint on The Today Show)
In Merry Christmas, America!, you'll read about the fun tradition of hiding a pickle ornament in your tree on Christmas morning. The first person to find the ornament gets to open the first present.
I'd never heard of this until I read the book, but I just saw a whole line of pickle ornaments at my craft store the other day (fashioned as pickle people in various professions). Now I'm hooked on this tradition and wish I could enter my own contest. :)
To enter, simply link to this contest and to Merry Christmas, America! Megawatt Displays Across the USA on your site (I've made it easy for you with the text you can copy below if you'd like), then leave a comment here with the link.

Here's a little video of Bruce's latest appearance on The Today Show, where he offers really great decorating tips for the holidays and shows off his own decorations at his home while he's at it:
