The 2nd Annual Holiday Giveaway event is in the last days – We recap the first 20 days
On December 1st, MuggleNet launched our 2nd Annual Holiday giveaway event. The event premiered last year to rave reviews by MuggleNet fans and thousands of entries! If you haven’t heard of the event, now is your chance to join in the fun! How does it work? Glad you asked!
For 25 days, we provide you a clue that leads to a specific page on MuggleNet or any of it’s websites (MuggleNet, MuggleNet Interactive, MuggleNet Fan Fiction, and MuggleSpace). Once you find the page, you will need to solve the trivia question and email in your answer along with the requested information for a chance to win a fantastic prize!
Our goal of the contest is to say “THANK YOU” to all of you for your continued support and enthusiasm throughout the year. We couldn’t do what we do without YOU!
We have completed 19 fun-filled days, a few easy trivia questions (and definitely some hard ones!), all resulting in 20 lucky winners. We have also posted all of the trivia answers on the contest page, so be sure to check them out.
One of the winners, Samantha D. of the USA, just collected her prize as she had a personal Skype chat with Harry Potter actress Ellie Darcey-Alden – who portrayed Young Lily Evans. Samantha said this of her prize:
I had a great time talking with Ellie!! She was very friendly, easy-going, and courteous. She graciously answered all of my questions (except for the ones she couldn’t, even after I poked and prodded her for spoilers about her special Christmas ‘Dr. Who’ episode :P). I felt very honored to have won the opportunity to speak with someone from two incredibly huge fandoms! She seemed like a well-grounded young lady, with the potential and drive to do great things! I wish her the best of luck in all of her future endeavors! Thanks again to MuggleNet for this opportunity and thanks to Ellie for taking time out of her busy schedule to sit down and talk to little old me!
