Oh Snap! There's a Contest at The Monkey House!!Because it's the holiday season, and all the blogosphere is hyped up about Christmas, I thought it would be fun to do a little photo contest. That's right, I am hoping enough of you will go out of your way to make me feel good by taking a moment to add a photo of your favorite Christmas tree ever. There are two categories: Prettiest Tree and Runner-up (which may be the ugliest tree, or may be the second prettiest tree, or may just be the tree with the most ornaments). Bottom
line: two prizes will be given. I ask that the trees actually be ones you took part in decorating or at least drove by and saw with your own eyes (i.e. don't just find something hideous on the interwebs).
The two winning photo submitters will receive a prize valued at roughly $100,000,000,000 (a set of 4 handpainted Martini Glasses and free advertising on my blog for a month - a 150 x 150 size... and I'll help you design your ad if you need a little graphic help). The handpainted martini glasses will be worth a ton of money when I go loco like Van Gogh. Or Picasso. Or Cezanne. Whatevs... they will be priceless 'cause I made 'em.
So add your photo to a blogpost, webpage, your flickr account, or whatever and submit the URL to the linky below. Let's be honest, most of us do not have Martha Stewart trees since we have kids. Handmade popcorn garland, the playdoh ornaments, or in my case, heirloom sticks from the Depression handed down from my grandma (no lie) would not likely grace the cover of Better Homes and Gardens. But I think even my stick-covered tree is pretty. So, anyone can win!
Here are a couple examples:

Um, yeah. If this is your house, you get both prizes.
The contest is open until December 20th at 9am, at which point judging will begin. The winners will be notified by email and will be featured in December 21st's WTF Friday post.
If you have any questions, you are taking this way too seriously. But feel free to email them to me anyway. I love emails. Especially when they aren't trying to sell me Cialis or anabolic steroids. Neither of which I have any use for. Bourbon and Zanax... that's another story.
