Every year I make presents for people. I love it and even though it can cost just as much as store bought, it's just something I do.
Does anyone else make presents for Christmas? I'd love to hear about them. And post pictures if you can! And links to directions!! Thanks.
Also any special holiday foods that you make. Or decorations.
Anyone else out there rather get a root canal than have to choose gifts for all your family and friends every year? I'm looking for creative ideas about gifts for everyone - kids, spouses, parents, friends. Any tips or tricks - places you shop, gifts that never fail, etc.?
My wife and I thought it would be fun to have a fun Christmas splore. Check in each day until Christmas for a new riddle, joke or puzzle. Add your own jokes or riddles--other seasonal holidays fine. (If you can find a good kwanzaa one, go for it.) Keep it clean. The submitted riddle or joke with the most "likes" wins a giant Hershey Bar. If you are a kid, have your mom or dad submit it for you. And tell them you get the candy bar.
No rules, just send your jokes in and hope people like them. Note: the like buttons only work after you officially join the splore. Obviously I can't win, but you can still "like" the daily riddle.
Post the answers to the riddles if you know them--just make it clear which one you are answering. Oh, and the person who gets the most answers right gets a big candy bar, too. Why not? You can be really smart or just google them or ask a kid. Merry Christmas! (P.S. If you post a Star Wars--Christmas joke or puzzler, I'll click "like" for your post myself. My wife may not.)
The spirit of good things things to come are from the goodness of the heart, not bribery as some would suggest. Peace upon the souls of those who struggle to make everything ugly about Christ, May the God I serve and worship in spirit, have mercy upon your souls.
As long as everyone is on here having a good time, Splore would like to announce a photography contest. (There will be more contests, so check back!)
Post your best seasonal photo to this Splore between now and December 26th (winter, family tradition, Christmas, holiday foods, etc.). On December 28th, the photos will be presented to a panel of judges. Although the judges will take into account framing and lighting and other elements of style, ultimately, they will choose the winner based on the photo that "captures the season best."
Rules: (1) send original photos which you personally took. (2) Post them to this splore by midnight of December 26th. (3) Each user may post up to three photos. (4) If you want to change one for a different picture, go ahead--up until the contest closes at midnight. (5) Do not post anonymously if you want to win. (6) Photoshopping for enhancement is allowed, but the photos should not be significantly altered or "faked."
The prize is a $20 Visa gift card. Please invite your facebook friends to come see your photos and submit their own by clicking the link "invite others to join" and posting this splore to your wall or inviting friends individually.
(Any photos I personally post are for your enjoyment only, and are not entries into the contest.)
