Now that we're Officially Friends (since nothing is real until it's on Facebook, right?), go enter our Worst Gift Photo Contest.
Everyone knows holiday gift giving can be a challenge, and this year we want to see your worst gift. Let's have some fun and help others in the process. Go to our Facebook page and upload a photo of a gift you've received (or given) that's odd, outlandish, funny or just-plain weird.
You've got to submit your entry by December 22, and voting will last from December 23-January 6.
The prizes? More than a pat on the back, that's for sure. The Grand Prize winner will have a goat donated in his or her name, supplying a family with up to several quarts of nutritious milk a day. The Runner Up will be honored with a trio of rabbits, and two Honorable Mention winners will each receive a donation of honeybees in their names.
I'm not eligible to win, as a Heifer employee, but I'll inspire you with the worst gift my kid received last year (from the perspective of her parents, of course). It looks like a cute stuffed dog. You'd think that by pushing the paw it would bark or pant or something dog-like. Nope. It loudly bursts into the song "Only You" by The Platters.
