Our ninth day of giveaways is brought to you by Chloe, the daughter of one of the team members here at XOXOAD and a huge YouTube star fan! To enter the contest, please leave a comment answering this question: What do you think was the best holiday gift you’ve received?
Today’s post is brought to you by a true YouTube fan, Chloe, age 10.
Why do I like the holidays? Well, for starters, I love the traditions and seeing my family. It’s not just about the gifts, it’s about the excitement leading up to Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or any other holiday you and your family celebrate.
I know the holidays are not just about the gifts, but if I had to choose the best holiday gift I ever received, it would be my laptop. When I came downstairs on that Christmas morning and opened it, I was ecstatic. I hadn’t yet heard of some of my favorite YouTubers like Miranda Sings, Tyler Oakley, and many others because I didn’t have anything to watch them on. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t spend all my time on YouTube. What I am trying to say is coming downstairs and seeing my laptop sitting there was amazing.
My favorite holiday tradition is to go to my grandmother’s house on Christmas Eve. I get to see all my family and open my holiday gifts from my relatives a day early. And I am the only granddaughter/niece, so all of my family loves seeing me. I have to say, I don’t mind the extra attention.
Please have a safe and happy holiday season, and have some fun!
Today’s giveaways are:
Selp-Helf by Miranda Sings
Binge by Tyler Oakley

Hello Life by Marcus Butler
Over six million social media fans can't be wrong: Miranda Sings is one of the funniest faces on YouTube. For the first time ever, Miranda is putting her advice to paper in this easy-to-follow guide, illustrated by Miranda herself. In it, you'll find instructions on everything: how to get a boyfriend (wear all black and carry a fishing net), to dressing for a date (sequins and an orange tutu), to performing magic ("Magic is Lying"), and much, much more!
If you don't know who Tyler Oakley is, find the nearest pre-teen and ask. When the high-pitched squealing subsides, you'll both be ready to read this collection of madcap, hilarious, and moving stories from the YouTube phenomenon.
