Merry Christmas From 5 Minutes for Mom and Skype

by Susan

Christmas can be difficult if you’re away from your family and friends.

My husband’s entire family lives in Italy and while he misses them everyday of the year, holidays sting more.

But earlier this year, Rob’s parents finally got Internet access at their home and the first thing his brother did was set up a webcam and Skype for them.

For Nonno and Nonna, seeing and hearing their little granddaughters through the computer is priceless.

Every Saturday morning, we call Italy computer to computer through Skype. Julia loves to show off her toys to her little cousin Emily and say “Ciao” to all her aunts and uncles. It means so much to us that Julia can still be seeing her family in Italy every week and really knowing who they are. She constantly talks about Nonno and Nonna and her memories of being there on their farm stay fresher when she can see and talk to them regularly.

Skype is bringing families together and they want to help you stay connected with friends and family over the holidays.

So as a special holiday hardware giveaway, two of you will receive a Skype Certified Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 webcam.

If you’d like to win one of these two Skype Certified Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 webcams leave us a comment and tell us if you have ever used Skype before and if you win the webcam, who you’ll call first.

The folks at Skype sent us a webcam to test out, and my 3 year old Julia recorded a special message for you…

We love skype. My DH is in Iraq so Skype is the only way my 4 daughters and I communicate with him. They love to kiss daddy on the computer… my screen is always a mess these days! We’ve just bought a web cam for Gamma (DH’s mom) who lives 5 hours away from her 4 granddaughters and plan to begin skyping with her soon as well. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

My hubby’s parents are from England, & have retired to Greece (Corfu). We visit every few years but inbetween, phone calls can really be impersonal. I just looked over the Skype features & it sounds like something we really should look into. I kinda can’t believe we haven’t before. It would be great for Nana to be able to see her juju boy while talking to him!

You know what’s funny about this is that I loaded Skype on my computer many months back and have yet to figure it all out. I would love for my parents to be able to interact with my parents on the other side of the country.

Merry Christmas to you all as well!

28 Michelle December 24, 2008 at 1:07 am

We don’t have Skype but I know the family in Calgary would love it..

29 Heidi alexander December 24, 2008 at 1:21 am

OOOOH! I would love this cam I was just talking to my friends about Skyping saw it on a blog and I loved it! I have friends all over the country and this would be awesome! What a great giveaway!!!

31 Aura December 24, 2008 at 2:06 am

I have never used Skype at home, only at my parents when they speak to my uncle in south africa or cousins in Israel. My older sister and her family are moving to a different continent this summer and we were just discussing adding international calling (we use phone cards now) to our phone plan. For some reason we never thought of skype (until now). I would love to be able to keep up with my sister on a daily basis like we do now and be able to see my neices and nephews growing up. My twins are under a year and I would hate for them to grow up without “seeing” their cousins.

I have never used Skype before but I know just who I’d call first…my mom while holding my little boy in my lap. A drunk driver hit my mom head-on last year and she has been hundreds of miles away unable to visit very much because of all the pain she’s in and the physical therapy she’s had to undergo. It breaks her heart that she doesn’t get to visit with her one and only grandchild that much and seeing him through a webcam every day would be the next best thing!

43 Steven Cage Sr December 24, 2008 at 5:39 am

I’m Not Sure, I Have Never Used Skype. I Don’t Know Any One With A Web Cam. Thank’s

44 Nicole December 24, 2008 at 5:57 am

Oh, I’ve been wanting this SO bad! I’ve never used Skype before, but I’d call all of our family members all over the place! We rarely get to see everyone because everyone is so scattered all around the US..this would be a great device to keep us connected! :)

I’ve never used skype before but think it would be easy even for my low-tech parents. The web cam would great to give to the them so they can see/talk to the kids. They only get to see the kids in person 1-2 times a year.

I love Skype – I have a good friend in Denmark and it’s how we chat.

64 Michele December 24, 2008 at 9:35 am

We use Skype all the time, especially since we’re living in Brazil. It’s so wonderful to be able to keep in touch with family and friends….but my parents need a better camera, so this would be perfect!!!! My son Camden would definitely call Papa and Gamma!

65 amy ormsby December 24, 2008 at 9:53 am

I’ve never used Skype, but if I win- I would love to call my brother who lives in Florida. I live in Ohio and don’t ever get to see him.

66 Vicki December 24, 2008 at 9:59 am

I tweeted…and I’m an RSS subscriber! My son uses Skype; my friends and their four grown children and their families all stay in touch via Skype, and with a new grandson on the way (March) in a far-off state, I’d love to Skype, too!

67 Jill December 24, 2008 at 10:06 am

never tried skype

68 BRMcD December 24, 2008 at 10:07 am

I’ve used Skype to speak to my brother-in-law in Austria. He’s probably the first I’d call if I won.

69 Denise December 24, 2008 at 10:12 am

Nope, I’ve never heard of it. I’d call my father who lives out of state.

70 Beth/Mom2TwoVikings December 24, 2008 at 10:19 am

Well, I can’t compete with ITALY (LOL) but I’m on the opposite side of the state from my mom and I’m her only child so the Vikings are her only grandbabies. She would be THRILLED to no end if we could hook her up like you did for your family overseas!

71 Carol December 24, 2008 at 10:28 am

I have used Skype before and I would use it to call my friends in Holland. Happy Holidays all.

72 ellen cunningham December 24, 2008 at 10:32 am

We have never used skype before but I’d like to give it a shot. If we won the cam we would probably call my husband’s grandmother since we have not seen her in a while. Thanks for the chance.

73 Kathy Scott December 24, 2008 at 10:35 am

Skype is the best when you are traveling.

74 Jenn S. December 24, 2008 at 10:41 am

I have not used Skype before but was just talking to someone who has used it and loves it. I would call my dad first. :)

75 Bradley Baker December 24, 2008 at 10:41 am

Never used it.
I’d call my dad.

76 Peter D December 24, 2008 at 10:46 am

Thanks.

77 Angie December 24, 2008 at 10:47 am

Cute video!

I have Skype installed on my computer and have only used it once for business. I would probably use the web cam with my dad and mom.

78 Michael Capp December 24, 2008 at 10:48 am

I have no used Skype, but the webcam would be convenient for my kids talking to their Mother in Hawaii.

79 Gary Kennedy December 24, 2008 at 10:49 am

Never used Skype before. I would call mamaw if she’s figured out how to use hers yet.

Merry Christmas!

80 Erin Walsh December 24, 2008 at 11:14 am

I’ve never used Skype before. We would probably try calling David’s friend in England first for their yearly gabfest.

Thanks!

81 Kat R December 24, 2008 at 11:15 am

I have never used Skype before but if I won we would call the in-laws as I have yet to meet my husbands family up close and personal the three thousand miles between us puts a bind on us!

82 Louise Brouillette December 24, 2008 at 11:15 am

My husband is from England and he also misses his family much. He has been using Skype to call them at deeply discounted rates for about a year. It would be so great to have a webcam to “enhance” our calls a little… especially with a new baby on the way in Feb. It would be great for them to see her “live” rather than in still pictures.

I would have our little boy call his little cousin who lives in a different country. They have not seen each other since the summer and we don’t want them to forget about each other.

127 karen c. December 24, 2008 at 2:57 pm

I love Skype! I chat with my sister all the time on it and it’s really helped strengthen our relationship.

I’d love to win the camera for my brother-in-law though. He’s in the midst of a divorce and this would save him a lot in traveling so his son can still see his mommy.

128 stacey December 24, 2008 at 2:59 pm

OH, this is super exciting! I have never used Skype, but I have heard all about it and am eager to get on the bandwagon. Last year we moved from Oregon to Texas, and we have been missing our family *desperately*. My son was only 3 months old at the time, and some either haven’t met him at all, or haven’t seen him since he was tiny! I know for sure I would call my mom in California first. I hope I win!

I have never used Skype. I see Oprah has people “Skype” in…perhaps, I will get to “skype” with Oprah (LOL). Actually, I would like to skype with my sister who lives 600 miles away. Thank you.

162 Daphne December 24, 2008 at 9:18 pm

My brother called (the conventional way) this morning from Dubai. He had just heard about Skype and so told me about it. I am SO excited! My brother wants me to sign my Dad up for Skype so we can connect more often. Mom passed away last April, and the family (5 brothers spread all over the place: China, Saudi Arabia, Oregon) are doing our best to keep in touch with Dad and make sure he knows he is LOVED! Skype would be just the ticket. The first person I’d call is … I’d have Dad by my side and WE’D call my brother in Dubai!

163 Catherine copeland December 24, 2008 at 9:21 pm

I have used skype a few times but hubby just loves it. we will probably be using it more soon because my son will soon be leaving for iraq. this wil allow us to keep in touch with him more.

I was introduced to Skype this year by a friend and now I use it daily to grow my relationship with him even though he lives on the other side of the country from me (I live in AB and he lives in NS, Canada). The first person I’d contact if I won this new webcam would be Heath. We use Skype almost every day to speak about how our day went, listen to music together and even play games. I have been introduced to his mother via Skype and I am looking forward to my parents meeting him via Skype as well (a new webcam would enable them to do that). I am hoping to travel to spend some time with Heath in 2009. Using Skype together is definitely the next best thing to being there in person.

244 Margaret Imecs December 25, 2008 at 9:28 pm

I never had a webcam! We would use the webcam to be in contact with my parents and sister in Romania!

I currently use Skype for work, it’s great! I work a PT job for a call center, all of us working virtually can log on and chat while doing the phones in our home.

I love the idea of having a video chat with a grandparent. We have grandma in CA that is not mobile and has never met her 4y/o and 18mo grandchildren. I know she would love to see them!

282 Shaymaa December 26, 2008 at 12:36 pm

Yes, I use Skype. My best friend and I live over 800 miles apart (in different countries) and we haven’t seen each other in years. The webcam view is nice and large and the sound is clear. I would really love to win this prize as my ancient cam is in serious need of replacing.

310 Belinda A. December 26, 2008 at 11:06 pm

This giveaway has us in mind . . . we are in the same position as you – my entire family lives in Africa and its awful having my daughter grow up not knowing her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so on. My sister just got skype and she has been begging me to get hooked up, this would be so perfect! I’ve never used skype, but the first person I’d call would be my sister – I know there’d be a line a mile long at her house with family waiting to chat to us!

311 Annalisa Kraft-Linder December 27, 2008 at 12:47 am

I would call my best friend in Cicinnati, Michelle, who already uses Skype and has been hinting for me to use it.

I do use skype on a daily basis. It’s incredible.. The service was much better in the early days before so many discovered it. Now the background noise is very loud, I was told due to so many users…. over 11,000,000 on christmas! AND you do lose calls after talking more than 20 mins usually. They offer several plans, pc to pc free and then you can pay as little as $3 monthly to call landlines and cell phones from your pc. My friends wish I had a better webcam tho which would make it so much nicer when calling friends and family far away. I didn’t have one at all for years… I have used skyped for a couple years now… so finally got an inexpensive one but it doesnt work that well. and doesn’t adjust or angle at all. It would be great to win this webcam…

I’ve downloaded but not installed Skype because I don’t know enough about getting the best webcam for the lowest price.

Who would I call? My best friend, Filio, a reporter for Hellenic Broadcasting, who’s been spending every Athens day up to her lungs in tear gas.

374 michelle maddock December 29, 2008 at 1:16 am

I would love to win a webcam! I’ve never used skype, but I’d love to! :)

My brother in law and his family just got a webcam for Christmas. He’s called us 10 times (or more) wanting to video chat, but we don’t have the capabilities. They have a 3 month old baby who we’ve never met. We’d love to “meet” Luke over webcam. So, they are the first ones we’d call. They live in Ohio and we’re in California.

I am part of an online forum. All women who had babies in December 2006. We’ve all become close and some of us have even met in person. All across the US, Canada and even in Germany. I’d love to be able to Skype chat with my friends. I know a lot of them use Skype to chat with one another. I’ve not used Skype since I don’t have a webcam.
Great giveaway, thanks! :D

I need skype. I have used it for online classes and to keep in touch with friends abroad and so my daughter can “see” her family that is spread out over the country. My webcam is old though and I ducktape it to the top of my laptop and it’s pretty grainy. But…I LOVE skype, it’s revolutionary.

I have used Skype before, but not for a while. I should try it again, now that I have upgraded my computer. The first person I would call is my Mom, and after that, friends in France!

603 Becky Grady January 9, 2009 at 3:10 pm

I haven’t used Skype, but my son uses it all the time. I would love to talk to my brother’s family over web cam. He has 5 kids and lives 1,000 miles away from me, so I don’t get to see them often.

604 Maja January 9, 2009 at 3:41 pm

Yes, I use Skype. I would call my mom in Croatia and my friend in London.

609 Connie S January 9, 2009 at 5:46 pm

Heck, I’m too old to know what Skype is – so, I would call my son to give assistance!

610 Carolyn January 9, 2009 at 5:55 pm

I have never used Skype. I am sort of a Luddite when it comes to computers, so I guess I’d need help if I win this. I’d call up Grandpa Bob in Wisconsin. We don’t see him all that much!

611 prplrush January 9, 2009 at 6:45 pm

Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I have never used skype before, and should i win, the first person that i would try to call with skype would be my sister in Germany.

612 Terri B January 9, 2009 at 6:47 pm

Yes! We use Skype all the time. My brother just moved to Australia a few months ago. I am so grateful that I can still talk to him without going broke with long distance bills. Plus, it’s amazing to be able to SEE him on the computer… just like on the Jetson’s.
Thanks.

I have never used Skype before but a friend of mine has and it is amazing. The first person I would call would be my childhood sweetheart. After 20+ years we made contact again through Facebook, we have sent pictures and talked for hours but having a webcam would just be awesome. He has a cheapy so I have seen him through black grainy black and white, I would love to blow his world and show him my pretty face.

Thank you
