UPDATE: this contest is now closed

Our winners were chosen from a variety of contests, including a flash contest (500th comment on a given Dojo app post), our favorite usage of #dearSanta, and our favorite #dojoSanta Christmas bomb.

  • B B. (Prize #3 – Flash Contest)
  • Kevin A. (Prize #2 – #dearSanta)
  • dcastle82 (Prize #1 – #dojoSanta)

Typically, we allow our Secret Santa contest to serve as our month-long Christmas giveaway, with Dojo members bombing the snot out of each other’s respective mailboxes. But we thought we’d sweeten the pot and give some extra incentives to join in the cigars-and-Christmas fun!

This week’s contest is sponsored by Payless Cigars & Pipes

Contest Theme: Christmas 2017

All weekend, leading up to Christmas Day, keep your eyes peeled on the Dojo app, as we’ll be giving away cigars and swag for three straight days!

  • Aging Room cigars
  • Perdomo Cigars
  • Neptune Cigars
  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars
  • Atlantic Cigar Sale

Post your Christmas-themed entries on the app using #dearSanta and you’ll automatically be entered to win. But there will be other contests as well—like we said, keep them eyes peeled!

Entry Examples:

  • All I want for Christmas is world peace… and a butt-load of cigars #dearSanta
  • Show off your Christmas decorations (bonus points for involving cigars)
  • Make some cigar-shaped Christmas cookies (just be careful—don’t want them to look like something else…)

Get creative and have fun with the concept—bend the rules, do what you gotta do to make us laugh, cry, cringe, etc…
