xmas15adventsThat’s right – the competitions are back baby YEAH! We’ve had THREE great Advent calendars donated by Hotel Chocolat which you can enter to WIN!

Don’t want to wait? Do you just want one now? Pop over to their special Advent calendar page HERE and grab yourself one in white, milk or dark chocolate. Perhaps you subscribe to my assertion that Advent calendars are really covering a SINGLE DAY because a day has 24 hours and an advent calendar has 24 chocolates. Coincidence? I think not!

I’m giving one away on Facebook, one here and one on Twitter! All you have to do to win on Facebook is to just share the status update here:Β https://www.facebook.com/MostlyAboutChocolate/posts/1057212574323274 and then update Rafflecoptor so we can collect your email address so if you win I can get a hold of you.

All you have to do to win one here is leave a comment of more than 10 words about why you love Advent calendars. For example, I love advent calendars because they not only provide one chocolate a day but if you buy a case, you could have 24 days of 24h of chocolates – one chocolate for each hour and one calendar for each day!

All you have to do on Twitter is follow me and Hotel Chocolat and tweet the following message: I’ve just entered to win one of three Advent calendars from @hotelchocolat with @mostlyaboutchoc here: http://bit.ly/1S3vQ8v

And that’s it! I’m using Rafflecoptor so I can collect your email and I will check you did share or tweet or leave the right kind of comment.
