We are having a contest.  Here’s how to enter…

Over the past 20 Days, some Advent Calendar doors have contained slips of paper with pictures from Christmas movies and arrows pointing to one character in that picture.  Then there were blanks next to the picture to write that character’s name.  Some, not all, of the characters had a little red circle around one of the blanks, singling out one letter.

To enter this year’s contest, take the letters that were in those red circles and unscramble them to reveal a Christmas related word.  Once you have that word, email it to along with your mailing address.  Those who send in the correct word will be entered into the drawing for the contents of the Day 25 door.  Winner will be chosen at random from all the correct entries during the Advent Calendar opening on December 25, 2016.
