Win tickets to Jingle Bell Christmas with a five star hotel stay...

We have already found 540 Advent Competitions this year, that's a record so a big thank you to all the team, and come Thursday we should have a load more with the second round of 12 days competitions. 

I’ve had a great week prize wise and have won a Bloom & Wild Christmas tree (from an Advent), a bundle of film merchandise from a magazine entry, £100 Pizza Express voucher from a local website and a Santa Sleep Over at Alton Towers from a Facebook competition. We’re off there next week and I’ve given in and told the kids; I just couldn’t keep it a secret – plus, it’s a good bribe for them to be little angels!! Ha!

I’m also managing (so far) to enter a decent number of Advents; don’t forget you’ll start to see entries tail off soon as a lot of people just won’t have the time to spend on them. So, make the most of that if you can!

And if the Advents don’t keep you busy enough check out today’s update; there are lots of lovely festive comps but my faves this week have got to be - A pair of tickets to Jingle Bell Christmas plus overnight accommodation at the 5 star Waldorf Hilton on 22nd December, a Christmas Celebration Hamper from Fortnum & Mason which you’ll have in time for the big day, tickets to see Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas Special on 19th December and a Q&A with the cast at BFI Southbank and (not Christmas related) a special trip for two on board Belmond British Pullman including a welcome champagne reception on board and a five-course lunch with fine dining silver service.

Plus, head back on Wednesday and Friday and make some room for the social media updates; it’s a busy time SP’ers!

Enjoy the comps and the second week of the advents. Stay lucky.
