Someone holidays just got a ton merrier.

Meet Barb Whitner. Barb listened each and every day from November 9th until November 25th for the "Carrie's Gift for You" code words and entered them on the app. When all was said and done, Barb was selected at random from all the entries as the winner of the $5,000 Amazon shopping spree!

There's no doubt it will be a very, VERY merry Christmas for Barb and everyone on her Christmas list.

Whether or not Barb decides to use a little of that shopping spree to get herself something nice will be up to her to decide. I can tell you that if I were in her shoes, I would definitely use some of it to get myself something I've had my eye on for a while. Something like, oh, I don't know, a brand new, TaylorMade SIM Max 2 driver to add to my golf bag. Maybe even a whole new set of clubs to go with it and a new golf bag to put them all in. But, I'm just spit-balling.

However she chooses to use it, I'm sure this holiday season will be one Barb won't soon forget.

If you played along, but aren't Barb, don't worry. As we roll into 2022, we'll have tons of great contests with fantastic prizes up for grabs you could win. Keep listening, and make sure you have the WKDQ on your mobile device so you can be one of the first to learn when those contests get underway.

With the holiday spirit in the air, it’s the perfect time to dive into the history of iconic holiday gifts. Using national toy archives and data curated by The Strong from 1920 to today, Stacker searched for products that caught hold of the public zeitgeist through novelty, innovation, kitsch, quirk, or simply great timing, and then rocketed to success.
