Could someone please watch and post Day 4, and the answer to the trivia question?

TIA

Lots of Christmas contests now but I notice nothing from major sponsors like Coke and Pepsi. They must be waiting until next year when the Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5 get released. Then we can get those "Win Every Hour" contests...

I don't have the energy for Christmas contests like I did in previous years.

I agree. I used to play everything, and switch with others and if they didn't have time to play, I entered them in. Sometimes they entered me. But this year, I'm just doing one entry for the dailies. I'm not that greedy, or maybe it's just not fun winning when you stuff your day with contests. I take it I'm just not in the Christmas cheer so to speak and don't think getting someone some extra gifts will make them happier for the full year. I'm looking forward to new year's and hopefully I can win one of the few that might be scanning ip's or putting up cookies when I know if they aren't some people are probably playing a few people. Can't be angry when you used to do it yourself lol.

Hope you enjoy entering and something nice still comes.

I find Christmas contests in a weird way is your burst of energy from all that you put into contesting the months leading up to it. I can't go on a bingo like spree in winter after entering others and in the rhythm of the whole year. It would be unnatural but this is the best time to do it. Hopefully there are some other surprises in terms of wins as I haven't been entering daily all year but am entering now. If not, I put in some extra effort, and new year's time to begin new things, and I think I'll continue contests, the way I done it this year and won't give it more time, as sometimes, winning isn't even fun. You can hope for too much. I'm not tiring myself out with wants, but am getting what I need, and I continue to enjoy contests as a hobby.

This weather is just a lil crazy. Yesterday, I sat out with my winter jacket in the drizzle and my shoes didn't get soaked on the inside, summer shoes, not leather. It was just so nice, today, I'm not sure apart from it being windy and cold. I usually hate when the weather is stuck at or around 0 and it starts to wind and prepare for snow. Anyways, today, I really felt like it was a task to fill out these dailies. I don't know how I used to do that lol. Did it today, without enjoying my breaks and taking Sunday off. Not in the holiday mood and don't feel all that inclined to cheer people up with tangible gifts. All in all, from how it's going so far, I don't think I'll win anything to put under the tree. You never know though, and as much as I like things to move fast, sometimes the holidays take over, and you're left having to do things out of your way to keep the focus. It's a slow pace, the day is dull, and I now see why some people take a break from contesting. I just minimized, but regardless, it's a hassle, and there are probably a bunch of people trying to win. Nevertheless, good luck, enjoy your days, and hope that there are enough prizes to make entering holiday contests worthwhile for everyone.

I’m back, just for the Christmas contests, but yes, it’s a slog to get through it. I find it easier to only enter things I’m actually interested in, vs where I used to enter absolutely everything.

Happy contesting all!

Yeah, I guess I increased my intake and without anything assumed I should be getting more winning emails lol. We may all have to be a bit patient, and I don't mind waiting until New Year's. All in all, it would be the worse holiday contest streak for me since starting to play.

I'm glad I entered today, was going to not do it, gotta get into the rhythm. If you're chasing, it's hard to get ahead. It's all gotta fall into place, but there are surely going to be days that you rather just let it slide and forgo all those daily one prize allotted contests.

It would be nice to only win things you want to win, but sometimes, another way is to sell something you won and buy what you want lol. It's never going to a single source, but I get it, I'm trying to play for only things I want too, hard not to want to win some of them. Anyways, been spending too much time on the computer entering dailies and checking emails. Going to get away from it now that I'm done entering and try to break the chilly weather stream and spend a little longer out there ;). Have a good one everyone, and good luck

Yeah, I've lost the anticipation of winning a prize, kinda just leaving it as is. Got a couple of new things planned for the New Year, so excited to look forward to that. That's where my cheer is coming from. Usually I did pretty good during Christmas contests and could give everyone a nice prize that I probably otherwise wouldn't have bought. Alas, this year, I'm not trying to be santa. Trying to get through the winter and smooth out next year, as this year had a few bumps and turns that could have been avoided for the better. Otherwise, all in all, I'm glad with what I won this year and can conclude lol.

Recall previously that I won some nice things at the beginning of the year, and around my birthday which is about a month before Christmas. Not this year, the total opposite. Guess you can't ride on a good thing every year, but to be honest, I'm not even entering that much. Got this site and another site I load up to complete dailies now. Takes too long imo. If I could just relax, maybe if the weather was warmer..., but otherwise I'll be at it until New Year's only taking a few days off and hoping to still win one. Gonna try to treat the contests more as fun and look forward to winning the things I want to see, and not as an outing that I do only because I won, as I would like to have a little more money and a little less debt. To a new year, new plans, and to contests that are well worth winning to all who endeavour in this lot of luck, but we all know if we enter only the ones we want to win, we'll be waiting a long time. I give kudos to those not having time to post, because they're overwhelmed by the dailies, not to mention the daily social media contests. I'm sure your hard work will pay off. To me, I hope I win what I want, and enter less maybe's than trying to sell them and end up having a hard time doing so lol. There are many more outings I'd like to have taken if I only had the means so looking forward to improve the situation/see the horizon differently...so I gotta have a little more fun, and be more productive. Too much free time wasted on rfd like now. Sorry for posting so much lol. But if you read it, thanks and I hope you enjoy yourself and flow/focus the positive out and make this new year 2020 another great year for another birthday candle to burn out at some point this year...lol. Enjoy life.

I sure do wish I could enter contests on IG. Makes me very sad to see all the great items available, yet IG will not let me post comments. Been blocked for 3 days now. They will probably unblock my account the day after all the giveaways end. Of course, I am probably screwing up my blocked time allotment by logging in to see if I have been unblocked three times a day. :rolleyes:

Do you know why you've been blocked? Maybe there's a punishment grid somewhere, so you can see how long your sentence might be?
