THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE VISIT THE MAIN BLOG PAGE FOR THE CURRENT CONTEST.
Every day from now to December 12th, I’ll be posting a new contest on my blog to win that day’s prize. Your entry is only good for that day. To win the prize for any other day, you’ll need to come back and enter again.
The grand prize at the end of the 12 days of Holiday Hell Contest is two Kindles, to be awarded to two lucky winners who have entered the Kindle drawings (which are seperate from the daily drawings. Entry into the daily drawings does not enter you into the Kindle drawings).
The fine print: You can win one of the daily Holiday Hell prizes and still be eligible to win the Kindle. You must complete the entry form for each daily contest entirely, double checking that your name and mailing address are correct because this is what I’ll use to mail your prize. If your prize comes back to me due to an incorrect mailing address, you forfeit your prize. Prize winners will be drawn before the end of each day following the contest (ie Day 1’s prize winner will be drawn before the end of Day 2) and will be announced on my blog. Kindle winners will be drawn and announced here on December 13th. All prizes will be mailed by December 20th.
Only one entry into each drawing per household/IP address. Duplicate entries will be deleted and entrants will be disqualified.
International entries are welcome and I will mail overseas, but will not guarantee receipt by Christmas as it will go by dolphin due to the obscene cost of shipping overseas.
I reserve the right to modify the rules at any time.

Black Currant Liquorice (from Australia)
Acheron button and lanyard

I can’t stress enough how important it is to read the rules and give exactly the information I ask for, as I will disqualify your entry if it’s not correctly–and completely–filled out and I would guess maybe a fifth of them come in incomplete.
We’re going to use the comments again today. This one is going to be a little different. I’ve been pretty stressed and cranky this past week, and feeling a little let down by recent things. I read a post yesterday by an author who seemed to be feeling the same way, and she signed off by encouraging everyone to say something nice to someone in their life. I liked that because, well, I know the world doesn’t revolve around me no matter how much I want it to! So for today’s entry, your assignment is to go say (email, text, smoke signals, IM, Twitter, post on Facebook/MySpace/your blog, hire a banner airplane, etc) something nice to someone you know, something that might pick up their day (and yours!). Then come back here and tell me whose day you brightened and how you let them know/told them. You don’t have to tell me what you said, just who you said it to and how you did it. Obviously, I have no way of checking that you actually did this (unless you painted your nude body with the message and ran through town, thus making sure you appear in the news–don’t do that), so I’ll just rely on your good faith that you’ll do this–something that’s fairly easy and will make someone smile. Let’s spread a little holiday cheer!
Since we’re using the comments and not the form, don’t forget to come back and check if you’ve won so you can send me your address.
