Famous-Smoke-LogoUPDATE: This contest is over. Scroll down to see all the wining entries.

2014 is nearly over, and that can only mean one thing to a Cigar Dojo fanatic – the 12 Days of Cigars and Christmas giveaway is finally upon us! This year’s contest will mark an unbelievable 3 years of Cigar Dojo Christmas giveaways (time flies on the Dojo…)!

Every year, we like to keep the contest fresh, tweaking the rules to make for the most fun, fair, and enjoyable contest for as many people as possible. And this year’s contest is geared to be our biggest and best Christmas giveaway to date! The unique theme with our special Christmas giveaways is that they center around gifts given by you, the Dojo community. In year’s past, prizes were sent to the Dojo headquarters, where they were then given away throughout the 12 days of Christmas. For 2014, we’re cutting out the middle man, adding an element of teamwork, and a dash of poetic creativity, for good measure.

Read on for full details…

2 contests are better than 1

This year’s prizes were too awesome to be contained in only one contest – we teamed up with Dojo sponsor Famous Smoke Shop to make this the best Christmas giveaway in Cigar Dojo history! Beginning Dec. 14th, 2014, there will be TWO Christmas contests, BOTH running every day through Christmas, ending the night of Dec. 25, 2014.

12 Days of Cigars and Christmas giveaway #1

This is the user-generated Christmas contest. It works as such:

  1. Cigar Dojo members will send “cigar bombs” to other Dojo members of their choosing
  2. The “bombee” will then make a post on the Cigar Dojo app showing the bomb along with who bombed them and the hashtag #ChristmasBomb
  3. We will then choose our 3 favorite “cigar bombs” on Dec. 26th, 2014
  4. The sender AND receiver of the 3 winning “bombs” will each receive a prize (6 prizes total)

Contest rules:

  • There are no limits to the number of bombs a user can send or receive
  • Bombs must land between 12/14/14 – 12/25/14 to be eligible for this contest
  • The winners will be selected by the Cigar Dojo staff and may be based on creativity, bomb size, bomb value, generosity, or best overall bomb

12 Days of Cigars and Christmas giveaway #2

This contest is based on the classic Christmas tune “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. It works as such:

  1. Every day, during the 12 days of Christmas, we will post the corresponding lyrics to “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song
  2. Your task is to create your own lyrics to that section of the song
  3. Post your “take” on the song on the Cigar Dojo app and include the hashtag #12DaysChristmas
  4. A winner will be selected the following day, introducing the next day’s lyrics and contest

Contest rules:

  • Contest entries are limited to 2 per day
  • Pictures are encouraged (but not necessary)
  • Winners will be selected by the Cigar Dojo staff and may be based on creativity, originality, humor, or message
  • There will be 12 total winners for this contest
