Sit On Santa's Virtual Lap!

You have got to try this! To promote their new digital picture frame, CEIVA's Got a Wish Sweeepstakes allows you to sit on Santa's lap and tell him your one wish for the holidays. One winner will be drawn for each day of the contest (29 in all) to win $500 to go towards their holiday wish. This contest ends on Christmas Eve 2008.

Everything about this contest is just plain cool. First of all, the digital frame they are promoting allows you to upload photos to the frame from a remote location. Secondly, you have a chance to win a $500 cash prize. Thirdly, the photo you upload shows right up in the video. Lastly, Santa has your name and your wish right in his log book and he actually says your name out loud. I sent this video right to my husband. I did not send it to him because I was trying to drop a hint about an SLR camera (although you certainly could use your video for that purpose), but I thought he would get a lot of enjoyment out of the interactive video.

By the way, you might think the photo in the video does not look like me at all, but it is me. It was taken at least four years ago while I had different glasses and shorter hair. Plus it was a whole different era in my life. It was the pre-twins, pre-mortgage, pre-blogging era. I wouldn't trade my life now for anything, but it's nice to remember a less stressful time.

After you watch your video, you will have the option to email it to someone and to embed it in your blog too. So which photo would you upload?
