Enter the Telling Tales Ho Ho Ho-liday Giveaway

What better way to spend time with the family this holiday season than snuggling up with a good book?

Here’s your chance to win a new book to add to your collection, or win a family pass to take the family out for a nice day at the Art Gallery of Hamilton or at one of Hamilton Conservation Authority’s beautiful areas.

What is your all-time favourite ‘must-read’ holiday book? Is there a certain book you have to read every year? Or do you have an advent calendar of books to count down until your holiday celebration? Do you prefer traditional stories or ones with a modern twist?

Tell us your favourite holiday story for a chance to win a book or a family pass. All entries will be put into a random draw and we’ll pull three winners each day. Contest runs from Thursday, December 10, 2015 until Sunday, December 13, 2015. Winners will be notified by noon the following day.

Each book entered in the comments on our Facebook page post or Tweeted to us @TellingTalesFFS will be entered into a random draw to win one of the following prizes:
