Oh Deer Holiday Contest

Not applicable

The good folks at the Where I've Been web site have come up with a contest involving their Twitter site, and they asked us to spread the word. 


Breaking news out of the North Pole: Rudolph's famous glowing nose is busted! We're as stunned as you are. With a particularly foggy Christmas Eve ahead, Santa just couldn't afford to take any chances, and he's already plucked another red-snouted reindeer from a rare flock in south Norway to take care of the job. But there's a problem: The new leader of Santa's sleigh needs a name.

That's where you come in.

We've gotten the exclusive scoop from Captain Kringle himself, and his mission is clear: If your suggested name gets chosen as the most creative, you'll win two free round-trip tickets from Southwest Airlines!

To enter, all you have to do is:

  • Follow @whereivebeen on Twitter. Not on Twitter? Join here, it's free.
  • Retweet the following message as stated: "Give Rudolph's successor a name! Follow us & RT this msg 2win @SouthwestAir tix #ohdeer."
  • In front of the retweeted message, suggest a name . For example: "Seymour! Give Rudolph's successor a name! Follow us RT this msg 2 win @SouthwestAir tix #ohdeer."
  • Read the Terms and Conditions of the Oh Deer Holiday Contest here.


The contest will run Tuesday, December 22nd from 9 am to 9 pm (CST), so act fast! We'll announce the winning name Wednesday, December 23rd, on the Where I've Been Twitter page. Remember, Santa's counting on you, so be thoughtful and creative, and make sure you follow @whereivebeen to be eligible!

And don't worry about Rudolph -- he's recovering with one of the best surgeons in Beverly Hills.

Happy holidays and happy tweeting,

The Where I've Been team
