Cigar ContestUPDATE: The National Cigar Day Virtual HERF has come and gone and it was a huge success. Cigars were both honored and smoked by the thousands. George23 and Drew_M were voted by the Dojo community as the winner’s of the contest.

Now all we can do is start counting the days until next years National Cigar Day.

What’s one thing every cigar fan loves? Easy – cigars! Okay so maybe that was a little redundant… But what you may not know is that tomorrow, February 27th, is National Cigar Day! And what better opportunity (excuse to smoke) for us to break out of this monotonous cold weather and join in the fellowship of our brothers and sisters of the leaf.

Being such a monumental national holiday, with importance rivaling that of President’s Day, Columbus Day, and St. Patrick’s Day, we will assume you’ll have been given a day off from work and your calendars cleared… And by that I mean, let’s smoke cigars all day! Whether you’re an early riser, or on the Vampire Crew, light up something you enjoy and let’s celebrate the magic of cigars!

Smoke Night Virtual HERFOfficial Virtual HERF

Yes, fine cigars should and will be smoked all day long on the Cigar Dojo app, but the official Virtual HERF won’t be starting until 8PM EST (7PM CST, 6PM MST, 5PM PST). What’s a Virtual HERF? Much like it sounds, an incredibly massive amount of cigar smokers hanging out and smoking cigars at the same time (only virtual rather than physical)!

Grab your favorite smoke, your standby, or something new and light up with the Dojo for National Cigar Day.

And now for the contest details…

This week’s contest theme is:
 Show us your love for the leaf 

What would National Cigar Day be without free cigars? Join us in celebrating this (surprisingly convenient) holiday and you just may win yourself some tasty smokes! Show us your love for the leaf for a chance to win. We want to see why you love cigars so much, get creative and show us something new, interesting, or funny!
