The Twelve Days of Christmas Contest


"On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me,
A partridge in a pear tree."

The cost of this today would be $219.99.
Historically the 12 days of Christmas started on Christmas Day. The partying and revelry went on until day 12 when the tree was taken down. A big cake was brought in for everyone to enjoy. The person who ate a pea or bean hidden in the cake was crowned the king or queen of the festivities. However, today most people are ready to take down the tree and trimmings by New Year's Day, so...
Today I am going to start a contest on the 12 Days of Christmas, which will end on Christmas Day.
All you have to do is e-mail me at jenesgems@yahoo.com and answer a question by midnight the day of the post.
Today's question is:
What gift have you given that you were happiest to give?
Besure to include your e-mail address, so I can contact the winner.
