Sam’s Club Holiday Cheer Giveaway

Cheer is: More time with the family? Festive décor? Planning in advance?  Sam’s Club recently announced the results of the 2012 Study on Holiday Cheer, which set out to understand the state of holiday cheer among American consumers and discover the routines and inspirations that create cheer during a busy shopping season. The study revealed that while 75 percent of consumers feel that the recent economy has an impact on their holiday cheer, 79 percent are looking forward to the 2012 holiday season.

To deliver more cheer to hopeful families this holiday, Sam’s Club and have launched a host of inspirational holiday solutions for preparing the home, entertaining and gift giving. To further elevate cheer through the season, Sam’s Club has enlisted an all-star squad of Cheer Guides, national experts in decorating, entertaining and charitable giving who will inspire members with creative, fun ideas that ease the stress of the holiday season.

Despite the economic impact on cheer, the 2012 Sam’s Club Study on Holiday Cheer states that nearly three quarters of American consumers look forward to the holidays, no matter what income level, ethnicity, age or household size.  The overwhelming definition of holiday cheer is family and friends. In fact, 50 percent of American consumers say that dinner with family and friends best defines cheer.  Furthermore, over 35 percent say cheer is defined by lights and decorations and eight percent define cheer as holiday movies and music.  For even more interesting facts from their study, visit the link provided.

There might be something to the “making a list and checking it twice” mantra. In fact, half of all survey respondents said they are happier during the holidays when they plan ahead and find ways to simplify their lives. To help families prepare for gift shopping, out of town guests and party planning, Sam’s Club presents a host of simple programs to inject cheer into the shopping routine:

  • Cheer is the magic of the season! The twinkle of the lights, that special heart warmth that comes from the gathering of families and seeing the first Nativity scene are all things that help make the season complete.

  • Cheer is seeing the magic of the season on other’s faces. It is not just limited to children!

  • I love the sights, sounds and smells of the Christmas season. It seems like everyone is happier.

  • 😀 This is my favorite time of the year! Cheer has different meaning to different people which is what makes this time of year so special! We all can celebrate in our own ways. For me personally, cheer starts in October … i know, i know.. too early, but the holidays START with Halloween… all the way through to New Years Eve! I love everything about this time of year.. decorations are a MUST for them all. I get to spend much needed time with loved ones. We bake way to many Christmas cookies and I always try to find a good Christmas story that I’ve never read. I fill my weekends with Hallmark Channel or Lifetime Christmas movies…oooo.. don’t forget the 25 Days of Christmas!! I also use this time to talk to my son about what this holiday means… really means. And I always find a way to volunteer around Christmas… even if it’s helping at a school party. It’s the season of GIVING and for me, that means more than presents. :)

  • Cheer is good food, family and friends enjoying the holidays.

  • Things that cheer me would be spending much time with my husband and my son! There is so much in my life to be thankful for, for instance with my husband being in the service we at times aren’t able to spend Holidays together. But I am thankful that this year he is able to spend it with my us! This will be my son’s second Christmas, so much more decorating and baking with a little helper for sure this year, especially with the inlaw’s coming down i’ll need all the help I can get! Your site will come in handy for recipes! (and of course lot’s of cleaning up afterwards) =) That is my Holiday/Life cheer!
