HBC's 8 ways to a Happy Beautiful Christmas: Week 8

Hi girls!

Week 8 has arrived!
This will be the last installment of the series of giveaways from PPS and HBC's 8 ways to a Happy Beautiful Christmas.
Time flies so fast! A few days more and it's 2012!

Beauty inside and out. A story of Christmas bliss is yours this week.

When we were kids, mom and dad will tell us to be good most of the time so that when Christmas comes, Santa will leave something for us. We did well in this challenge and had so much fun going back to the year that was. The Holidays call for moments of being together with old friends from college or high school, videoke nights with officemates and reunions with loved ones. Each experience has a unique story to be told and we can’t wait to hear yours. 

To end the Christmas week, we’re giving you 4 of our best bath soaps from Body Recipe. You might wonder where is the beauty element here? It’s in the spirit of GIVING the gift of beauty. 

Thank you for being with HBC in the whole 8 Weeks to a Happy Beautiful Christmas. 
Now, on to the final week’s question: 

What is a happy and beautiful Christmas for you? 

(Answer the question then post a photo of your best Christmas on your Facebook and include the Giveaway Photo below).

  1. Answer: A happy Beautiful Christmas for me doesn't have to be about exchanging gifts and buying expensive stuff for your loved ones because you can do that any other day of the year. A Happy Beautiful Christmas for me is when i can be with my family, complete and happy, have fun, have a meal together and we can all go to church toghether and remember the real reason for the season, Jesus!

  4. Answer: For me a happy and beautiful Christmas is all about spending time with family and forgiving. Having a time for fun and games. a time for family to be happy. Time to feel a spirit of joy and peace. That we all need to come together no matter who are we all need love and no more hunger. And it will be more beautiful when everyone gets together and remembers the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. He is the Reason for the Season!
