Halloween has always been my favorite holiday!! For one, you get to dress up in whatever kind of costume or alter ego you want to. Then, you can actually walk or drive to complete strangers’ houses and expect them to give you candy just because you’re wearing a costume… or once you’re closer to my age, because you’re escorting a cute kid around. At the Bali Hai apartments, when I was a boy, they actually used to drive all of us kids in one van to the more upscale parts of town to collect more and better candy. It was so much fun and the decorations there bien elaboradas.
Now that we’re adults, it’s just not the same. Costume parties are fun and all, but the candy in a bag just doesn’t have the same thrilling effect anymore. That’s why I’m so excited to announce the Juan of Words – Online Halloween Contest! That’s right amigos y amigas, I’m hosting my own online costume contest sponsored by Ford en Español, a member of the Ford Motor Company familia… and the prizes for this photo contest are way better than candy.
I’m talking actual dinero!
So here are the basics. Anyone can participate. I mean anyone, so long as you are 18 years of age and can legally claim a prize in the United States. All you have to do is visit my Juan of Words Facebook Page (LIKE the page if you don’t already), click on the ‘Halloween Contest’ button on the left hand side below my profile image (it has a star next to it), upload your costume picture with a description, and then ask your friends to vote for you! Or you can click on the link above that says Halloween Contest!
The top three people with the most votes by Halloween Day will win one of three prizes:
First Place: a $300 Gift Card
Second Place: a $125 Gift Card
Third Place: a $75 Gift Card
That’s it! No other strings attached.
Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 31, 2011, and winners will be notified shortly thereafter. Así es que ya saben, GO! Get creative! Snap a picture of your best Halloween outfit/costume and get your friends voting.
That extra money would be great for my Christmas shopping if I could actually compete!
¡Buena Suerte a todos!
