As promised, the Better Off Red elves are giving you a chance to win some very cool Reds-related gifts as a “thank you” for your support in 2013!  It’s a little something we like to call “The Umpteen Days of Christmas.”

Every day through Sunday, December 22nd, you’ll have the opportunity to win a top-of-the-line prize.  Here’s how…

Using the comments section of this blog post, correctly answer the following Holiday-related trivia question:

According to Ms. Underwood, what did yonder break after the weary world rejoiced?

Easy enough?

You’ll notice, I made the actual comments in the comments section invisible to you and other readers.  This is to cut down on “cheating.”  Once you submit your comment, it will be automatically emailed to me, where only I’ll be able read your answer.  I’ll put all the correct answers in a pile from which I’ll choose one random winner, daily.  If you win, I’ll contact you via email.

And remember – no matter what holiday you celebrate this time of the year, Better Off Red celebrates it, too.  Thus, all of you are encouraged to participate!

Congratulations to Day Four’s randomly selected winner, Alex Buskirk, who correctly answered yesterday’s question, stating that there’s a Christmas tree in “The Grand Hotel”  (according to Bing Crosby).  Alex wins some really cool stuff courtesy of the Reds Authentics Department and Reds staffers Lisa Braun, Zach Bonkowski and Lori Watt.

We’ll announce today’s winner tomorrow.  Good luck!
