RULES 2012 Christmas Past Appreciation Drawings!

Posted by on Dec 7, 2012 in Christmas Past 2012 | 0 comments

With warm thanks for your patronage & sincere wishes for a happy holiday season, we announce to you our annual Appreciation 12 days of Christmas Past!

Get into the spirit of Christmas and be entered into our drawings to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend our 7-day Missouri to Nauvoo to Winter Quarters Church History Tour, as well as other fabulous prizes.  Keep this grand prize for yourself or give it to someone else for Christmas.  This tour travels July 13-19, 2013, during the incredible Nauvoo Pageant, some of the most delightful Pioneer entertainment imaginable!

All you have to do is “like” us on Facebook (or have already “liked” us) and your name will automatically be put into the Grand Prize Tour drawing. To increase your chances of winning this incredible trip, and to put your name into our daily prize drawings, “follow” us on our Facebook page from December 12th – Dec 23rd, 2012.  Each day a question regarding something from Church History’s Christmas Past will be posted – anything from hymns to accounts about early church history individuals.  Those who do not have a Facebook account and are not interested in setting one up can “comment” an answer on our blog under each day’s post.

Each day that you answer our Christmas Past post, your name will be entered into our grand prize drawing and will be put into a separate drawing for holiday prizes awarded each day.  “Sharing” our posts with others on Facebook will earn you another grand prize and daily prize entry. The daily winner will be posted on our Facebook page the following morning before the next question is listed.  The information for our Christmas Past answers will be found on our blog.  See below for more information and rules.

Our hope is that this activity will help us all to slow down to appreciate the Christmases of simpler times, learn something new to inspire us this holiday season, and to thank you for another wonderful year. Joining us on Facebook and following our blog will continue to benefit you as you will continue to receive inspirational thoughts and you can stay informed of all our latest tour information (we are planning some exciting things for 2013!).  Tell all your family and friends about this unique way to enjoy this holiday season.
