Since childhood I've been a big fan of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and all their friends. For those other die-hard fans out there, perhaps you recall the movie, It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. When the group heads to the mall around Easter time, they discover that the countdown to Christmas has already begun, and huge sales are advertised everywhere (complete with Christmas decorations). Do you remember what Lucy notes upon seeing such a sight?

"I told you - it's the gift-getting season!"

Now, what does all this talk of Easter (or Christmas, for that matter) have to do with this July 25th post? Well, this week we're celebrating "Christmas in July" on my personal blog, Seasons of Humility. (Forgive me for constantly talking about my own blog, but I find that when I need an idea for a post, I can just stick with similar themes between blogs...)

And to go with Christmas in July, I thought I'd let you know about some gift-getting opportunities! ;)

Free e-Book

OK, let's start with a freebie for everyone! As most of you are probably aware, offers some great, limited-time free Kindle e-books. Here's one such offer:

Just click on the image above to "purchase" your free e-copy of MaryLu's fabulous book, Surrender the Heart. But remember - this offer only lasts through July 31st!

Survey with Giveaways

Here's where my personal blog comes back in. Today I've posted a survey on Seasons of Humility. If you fill out the survey (which mostly pertains to my regular readers, but you're welcome to become a new reader if you're not one already!) and if you have a U.S. mailing address, you can sign up for a chance to win 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son or Surrender the Dawn (yes - that would be the third book in her latest series; the first book is the freebie mentioned above).

An Alaskan Adventure!

This next giveaway is hosted by Bonnie Leon, author of the "Alaskan Skies" series. You can have a chance to win an "Alaskan Adventure in a Box," which includes a DVD, book, mugs, collectables, and some treats! Just click on the image below to learn how to enter. (You have until August 8th to enter.)

More Christmas in July

Waterbrook Multnomah is also celebrating Christmas in July with a fun and easy-to-enter giveaway! All you have to do is "TEXT 'Christmas In July' to 57682." The website says that winners will be notified by text message on August 1st, so I'm guessing this giveaway is still open until then. (Forgive me if I'm mistaken!) Just to be on the safe side, I'd enter soon! Click on the image below to learn more about the giveaway (including which Christmas books you can win):

Gift Giving

What's better than a "gift-getting" season? Well, I'd venture to say that would be a "gift-giving" season! May all this talk of Christmas in the summer season remind us to give to others all year long - and not just material gifts, but more importantly love, encouragement, comfort, a good example, and friendship.

I hope you all have fun entering the various contests (etc.), and feel free to let us know of any giveaways you might be hosting this week! And let's remember to let this be a season of gift giving, as well!
