The holiday season is here (where did spring, summer, and fall go anyway?) and to add to your merriment, we here at the Loudoun headquarters of the North Pole want to make your holiday a little brighters. So starting tomorrow, December 1st, we'll be giving away a prize a day for 12 days!

We'll be giving away prizes like overnight stays, restaurant gift certificates, Loudoun Civil War books, performing arts tickets, wine tasting, IMAX tickets, homemade pies and cookies, and even a Loudoun Christmas tree!

But there's a catch (of course, there's always a catch): you have to go to our Facebook page to win. Each day, we'll announce the day's prize. Simply go to the listing and click on the link to register. We'll select the day's winner randomly from everyone who registers. It's that easy to win!

We hope all these prizes will encourage you to come visit too! And this weekend is a GREAT time to visit. We've got some great events, shopping, and holiday cheer going on including one of our signature events, the Middleburg Christmas Parade this Saturday, where red-clad riders on horseback lead more than 40 hounds down the main street to start the festivities. A great overview of Loudoun's holiday experiences, as well as a preview of the horses and hounds, can be seen in the video below. Happy Holidays!
