Animation Celebration: Giveaway

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day!  I know everyone is busy with family picnics, watching parades, and enjoying fireworks--as you should.  In celebration, I want to offer an animation DVD giveaway.  I have 3 DVDs which are brand new, factory-sealed.  The giveaway includes Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol,

Christmas Classics DVD which features the rare animated 1985 TV special George and the Christmas Star (click HERE to see a previous essay I wrote about it),

George and the Christmas Star (1985)

and The Snowman wonderfully adapted from the popular Raymond Briggs children's book.

There will be ONE winner for the entire 3 DVD set.  This giveaway is limited to valid entries with shipments made to the U.S. and Canada only.  You are eligible to enter even if you've won a giveaway from this blog in the past.  All essay writers participating this month are also eligible.  Here's how you can enter the giveaway:

--leave a comment below with the phrase "Animation Celebration: Christmas in July."  You can enter again on Facebook and Twitter by commenting with the words "Animation Celebration: Christmas in July" once at each of the following locations:
Facebook page: Christmas TV History
Facebook page: Tis the Season TV
Facebook page: Christmas TV Companion
So you could enter up to five times by leaving the correct comment at all five locations.  This giveaway is for North American residents only.  This runs from today, Thursday July 4th to Sunday, July 7th at 8pm(ET).  On Sunday July 7th at 8pm(ET), I'll use random.org to generate a number from the total number of qualifying entries to select a winner.  I'll drop it in the mail ASAP after receiving the winner's mailing address.  
Make sure if you enter that I can contact you--or that you check back to see who won.  Would you believe I've had giveaway prizes go unclaimed!?  I also want to make the restriction that I'll only mail the prize ONCE--if you don't claim the prize from the post office and it returns to me, you're out of luck.  I'm not paying to ship it twice.  Yes, this has happened to me as well--several times.

Good luck!  Happy Independence Day--and Merry Christmas in July!
