Some people’s true loves have too much time and money on their hands.
As much fun as it is to be showered with gifts, drumming drummers, leaping lords and milking maids all sound like more trouble than a Christmas present should be. And while we love birds as much as the next person, you would need a farm to house all those swimming swans, calling birds and French hens – not to mention that partridge in its pear tree.
Thankfully, our friends at the Catalina Coffee & Cookie Co. have decided to forego wrangling all those birds and all those busy folks. Instead, they’ll be having a social media contest spread out over the 12 days leading up to Christmas on Catalina. Featuring a fabulous prize package that includes Catalina ferry tickets from Catalina Express, souvenir coffee mugs and a month’s supply of coffee or tea, the contest promises plenty of fun – and no birds. Don’t live on the island and can’t stop by to get your daily coffee? No worries, if you win, they’ll ship two pounds of coffee to you.
All you need to do to win that great prize package is like Catalina Coffee & Cookie Co. on Facebook and then follow along and participate. Each day you’ll be asked to like and comment on a particular post – usually by contributing a photo. Each time you comment you’ll receive an entry into the contest, with the winner announced on Christmas Eve.
This sounds like a lot more fun than geese – they tend to be cranky even when they’re not a-laying. Although those five golden rings sound pretty low maintenance.
