Dear fellow StudentZ

Now that the Christmas tree is decorated, it's time to write your letter to Santa !

You will be able to vote for your favorite letter, be it the most original, the most romantic, the most touching, etc... YOU choose !

Every participant will get 100 browniZ, and the winner will get 1000 browniZ + 2 months membership offered (or 2 months membership extension if you already are a member) !

You can submit your letter until Christmas Day, December 25th : on our new contests platform !

Well... I would personally write Santa to bring some warmth and joy to the ones who are sick and alone in those festive times.... December is always harder for them, because there's so much happiness and festive mood in the air, and there they are, all alone, no matter where they live and who they are, no matter if rich or poor, no matter in which part of the wordl
There's nothing like a bright smile on the face of a sick child spending Christmas at the hospital...I used to do benevolent animation in pediatrics, and believe me, just a smile on one of those little faces makes more than your day.
So, Santa please, bring a smile on the faces of the unhappy ones !

And Santa, on a funnier note, please bring me some good marks at my exams !

Don't count this as an entry for the contest guys, I just wanted to share this with you all

Oh yes, before I forget - language for your letters is English, and there is no words limit. For any comments on that contest, you can use this thread.

And don't forget : the voting phase of the Second Writing Context - "Taking the Plunge" - is still underway !

Good luck !

CheerZ,

Anne
