# On the 12th Day of Christmas… An iPad Air Giveaway! (winner announced)

**UPDATE:** The winner of the iPad Air is:

**#3,633 – Stephanie:** *“Having mexican food on christmas eve to avoid the “traditional” christmas eve feast foods!”*

Congratulations, Stephanie! Be sure to reply to the email you’ve been sent, and your new iPad Air will be shipped out to you!

Welcome to Day 12 of the “12 Days of Giveaways”! Our last day!

It’s the last day of holiday giveaways here on BEB, and I wanted to send you into the Christmas season with a bang! I held out on buying an iPad for years after they were introduced, finally buying one nearly two years ago. I couldn’t believe how much I used it, and wished that I had gotten one much sooner! It’s perfect for car trips – from watching videos to playing games – and I LOVE using it in the kitchen. A smartphone is typically too small for following along with a recipe, and I get nervous having my laptop too close to liquids, the stove and other kitchen land mines, so the iPad is perfect. Apple recently came out with the ultra-slim iPad Air, and I am giving one away! Read below for details on how to enter to win!

### GIVEAWAY DETAILS

One lucky winner will receive a 16GB iPad Air, in the color of their choice.

Lolretta TilleryonDecember 17, 2013at2:12 amAs a child we always received new pj’s on Christmas eve. That was the one present we got to open. We wore them that night so when we got up on Christmas morning we looked good for pictures that were taken. It is a tradition that is being passed on in our family.

Dana N.onDecember 17, 2013at2:19 amEvery Christmas Eve my parents would take us for a ride to see the decorated houses. One year we even saw Santa crossing the street. We couldn’t get home fast enough. It’s a tradition I’ve shared with my kids. It’s a nice way to settle down for the evening and it’s great to see all the lights.

Ellen A.onDecember 17, 2013at2:23 amMy favorite Christmas tradition is Christmas Eve laughing, eating and cherishing time with my family!

KarenonDecember 17, 2013at2:24 amMy favorite tradition is making gingerbread houses with my boys. Usually they come up with designs that are not houses at all, but that’s half the fun! Last year we made a football stadium, race track and snowboarding halfpipe.
