:santa: And it begins!

This contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated!


Welcome to the first day of the giveaways! I hope that everyone is able to enjoy these tasks, especially since they come with some really awesome prizes!

Today's prize is: a 3 month premium membership. :eager:

To kick it off, I want you to do a small bit of writing.

Task 1: Write a holiday themed haiku.


If you are unsure what a haiku is, here is a sample;

Christmas tree shining
Decorations on display
Milk and cookies out

Haiku follows a 5-7-5 format. Five syllables in the first one, seven in the second, and five in the third. 

For everyone who completes this task, you will be assigned a number then tomorrow morning you will be put into a random drawing for the three month premium membership.

:) Winners will be announced tomorrow.

Don't want a big gift.
Do not spend what you don't have.
Just love me instead.
