It's the Ho-Ho-Holidays! A time for spending time with friends and family, and coming together to share good food and fun, and sharing treats with loved ones!
And speaking of sharing treats with people I like, I wanted to do a special holiday giveaway contest for you all! I have been collecting cash shop items for a super special holiday giveaway contest that I call "The 12 Days of Siskmas" giveaway contest!
From December 26th until January 6th, I'll be having a daily giveaway of one super fantastic item that I think you'll all want! These items are from the Cash Shop, some of them from the famous "Black Friday 2012" sale, so you might want to get in on the fun - you could win one of these fabulous prizes!

Q: How does "The 12 Days of Siskmas" giveaway contest work?
"The 12 Days of Siskmas" giveaway contest is a daily item giveaway contest! Between December 26th, 2012 and January 6th, 2013 I'll be giving away a super fantastic item to one lucky winner who will be randomly selected from that day's entries!
Q: I love winning awesome items, how do I enter?
Entering the contest is easy! All you have to do is post in the contest thread to be eligible for that day's prize. For example, if you post in the thread on December 28th, you'll be eligible to win the prize being offered on December 28th. See? Pretty easy to enter, right?
Q: Can I also post on secondary (aka mule) accounts to enter for a chance to win a prize?
No, you can only post on one account for the contest, so pick the account you want to use, and enter on that! Anyone found to be using mules to try and win an item will be disqualified.
Q: Do I have to post anything specific to win?
Not really, but no posting just "bump" or a random smiley face. This is a social community contest thread, so hang out, chat, make new friends! It's the holiday season - be festive!
Q: Anything I should avoid posting or that will get me disqualified?
As usual, posting content that is inappropriate for Gaia or which violates our Terms of Service or Rules & Guidelines will be disqualified and you could get warned or worse, so avoid that type of content! As well, this is not meant to be a "bumping" only thread, so entries that just say "bump" or which appear to be intended to be just "bumps" will be disqualified.
Q: How will the giveaway contest winners be picked?
Great question! A random page number and post number will be randomly selected from all posts made in the thread on each day of the contest. For example, all posts made between 12:00 am PT and 11:59 pm PT on January 1st, 2012 will be eligible to win the January 1st prize as long as they meet the contest content requirements and rules.
I also am basing entries on Pacific Time, which is my time zone, so take that into consideration when you are trying for a prize! Or you know, just post every day for the duration of the contest to try for them all!
Q: Can International Gaians enter this contest?
Sure! This contest is open to all Gaians. As long as your country allows you to participate in such giveaway contests, you are free to enter! (By entering you acknowledge that you checked and your country does allow you to enter such contests! biggrin )
Q: This contest is based on a Christmas carol, but I don't celebrate Christmas. Can I still enter?
Of course! Just because this is based on a Christmas carol doesn't mean you personally have to celebrate Christmas to enter! We love the diversity of our members, and value your varied beliefs and traditions. Please feel free to stop by, have fun, enter the contest, and share your holiday traditions with us. We'd love to hear about all your family traditions, and how you all mark the holiday season in your own special and meaningful way. 3nodding
