Chicago (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
Rudolph's famous glowing nose is busted. With just two days before Christmas Eve, the happiness of millions of children now rests on the antlers of a nameless, green-snouted reindeer.
And today, Santa is making an open call to the world: Suggest the best name for his newest sleigh leader and receive two Southwest Airlines round-trip tickets to any destination of your choice.
Where I've Been has teamed with Southwest Airlines and Santa to bring the "Oh Deer!" Twitter Holiday Giveaway. The contest is simple: On December 22nd, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CST, follow Where I've Been on Twitter @whereivebeen, re-tweet the contest message, and add the most creative name you can think up for the new green-bulbed lead reindeer and you can win two of Southwest's Green Tickets, which grant free round-trip airfare to any of Southwest's destination cities. All are encouraged to read the Terms and Conditions of the contest and participate in naming the fresh-faced reindeer.
Santa says that Rudolph, who is recovering well with "the best plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills," should return next year without a problem. Mr. Claus stressed his belief that Rudy's green-nosed successor will be a successful navigator, but also asserts that the deer's having a name is key to its confidence.
Santa, who is "pretty sweaty right now, but composed," according to Mrs. Claus, chose the reindeer from a select flock of rare green-snouted deer in southern Norway.
"We're all a bit too on-edge to start thinking up names," said Mrs. Claus. "Twitter is overflowing with creativity, and Santa has faith that the community, with the help of Where I've Been, will come up with something brilliant. After all, there are Southwest tickets on the line."
Santa urges all to participate in his contest today, December 22nd, and to remind everyone to read the Terms and Conditions and follow @whereivebeen to be eligible. The winner will be selected on December 23rd on the Where I've Been Twitter page.
