DECEMBER 2018 POTM Contest

Sponsored Links
"Today is a gift. That's why it's called 'the present'."
-Old English Saying


Ohhh, so many reasons for PRESENTS in December...

There are the traditional reasons... Christmas, Boxing Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas, and more.
And the more whimsical ones... Fruitcake Shuffle Day, National Re-gifting Day, Free Shipping Day, and many more.
And the one-of-a-kind reasons... like those of you whose birthdays fall in December, or those of you who celebrate an Anniversary of some kind, or those of you who have a first-time occasion coming up (Housewarming --- Home-coming --- Something else)??


Let's celebrate the PRESENT(s)!


Show us your bird(s)...
GETTING A PRESENT
GIVING A PRESENT
Or just EXPERIENCING THE PRESENT

Today REALLY IS a gift. That's why it's called...



[Everybody!]


The Present!
**********
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd...
Here's an example, starring the Rickeybird!




This Month’s contest opens on December 1 and continues until December 29, at which time a Poll will be posted, which will end on the evening of December 31. The results will be announced on January 1. The Winner will receive a Premium Membership for one year and the photo will adorn the Forum’s Front Page for the Month of January! Please keep in mind that we have a large number of Junior Members and we need to keep the subject matter appropriate for all ages. As with all Parrot Forums activities, the Organization’s Rules apply in all cases. NOTE: We recommend not using Photobucket as it continues to disappear.

OooOOoOOooOOoOooOooOoOooooOoOoooh this is going to be FUN!

I love presents, not just for me -> is the anticipation and happyness just radiating of everyone who receives one.


Rb completely got it in one go: it's not about the content it is all about the complete experience

Re: DECEMBER 2018 POTM Contest

Great theme Gail! Can't wait to see what folks come up with. This will be Patches' first Christmas with us, so I'm curious how he will react to a tree inside the house. I think he's gonna love it! Excited for holiday pix with my boy.

I love it!

Or.....

"Walking in an Ekkie Wonderland" perhaps?

Maybe... "The First Noel, the Ekkies did sing" ?
