It’s one of the longest running traditions in Cigar Dojo history—other than Sensei’s signature “just got out of bed” look on Smoke Night Live—we’re speaking, of course, about our annual 12 Days of Christmas contest!

This was one of the first contests ever on Cigar Dojo (and 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th, and…), dating back to 2012. As you can probably guess, it consists of at least one contest every day for 12 days straight, leading up to Christmas.

We’ll do our best to keep the contests fresh, with different ways to enter, etc. Some may be easy, and some may require a little more creativity!

This year, contest prizes have been generously donated by our friends at JR Cigar! They’ve provided a healthy dose of prizes and made sure to keep things interesting. Watch out, because the prizes get increasingly more and more tempting as the days count down…

Cigar Prizes

12 Days of Cigars and Christmas cigar prizes by JR Cigar and Cigar Dojo

DAY 1

Day 1 – December 14, 2015

UPDATE: We have a winner! There were nearly 400 entries in this pick’em contest that challenged Dojo members to pick the winner of every single football game on Sunday and Monday. Incredibly Dojo member Domenucnesci picked 14 or the 15 possible games correct! While there were many members who accurately guessed 12 and 13 games correct, Domenucnesci was the only person to miss just one game. That’s an amazing accomplishment (heck I was excited when I got 8 right).

DAY 2

Day 2 – December 15, 2015

UPDATE: The winner of day 2 was Kevin H. His entry was picked at random from the comments on YouTube.
