Santa Stories: Share your Favorite and Win

Posted by · November 14, 2011 6:00 am

Experts Exchange Secret TechEE SantaSecret is out, we’re giving away another Amazon Kindle Fire!

The holiday season is full of friends, family and good cheer…plus gifts!

This month we want to know your favorite gift-giving story–and you can win a prize if your story is the best. Maybe it was a marriage proposal or getting Aunt Ruth’s burnt fruit cake (again) or maybe it’s not from the holidays at all. Whatever your story, we want to hear it.

Share your favorite gift-giving or receiving story on your blog (gotta have a non-EE blog to play).  We’ll read the stories and choose the winner based on uniqueness and creativity.

What do you win, you ask?  Well, since the best gifts are usually a surprise, we’ll keep ours that way, too. But here’s a hint: in the past we’ve given away t-shirts, coffee mugs, donuts, iPads and even the Amazon Kindle Fire.  We can assure you this prize will be on the same magnitude of coolness.

The contest ends at midnight on December 16, 2011. Here are the rules:
