We have given away a $500 gift card to one lucky listener.

If you didn't hear about our new contest for the holidays this year, we called it "Family Traditions". To enter all we asked was that you tell us about some of your family traditions or what new family tradition you would like to start with a $500 Visa gift card.

If you entered this year, thank you! We got a bunch of submissions, with some really great ideas including, new family portraits, matching pajamas for everyone, and those are just a few.

We wish that we could have given everyone a gift card but we only had one to give away this year and our winner has a great new tradition that we hope continues for many years to come.

Our winner was a woman named Lauren, that told us in her submission what she wanted her new tradition to be, she wrote,

"We would like for our new family tradition to involve our recently new neighbors. They moved into our neighborhood about a year and a half ago and the last year has been really tough for them. They are a family of 4 and both of the parents lost their jobs in the last 6 months which has really been tough for them. They are struggling to get by and now with the holidays, I can only imagine how hard it is for them. They have 2 girls at home and what I would like to do is make my new family tradition for me and my 2 boys is to give a family that needs help, help each year and $500 would be a great way for us to start. Merry Christmas everyone and thank you."

We couldn't think of a better tradition to start and we are so happy that we are able to give Lauren and her boys the chance to really change someones holiday this year for the better with the $500 Visa gift card.

Merry Christmas everyone!
