Living 3000 miles away from my family, the impending holidays can be a bit on the bittersweet side. Have you noticed that certain smells remind you of ‘home’? Like the holiday meal cooking in the kitchen, or even something as simple as a candle burning with a specific scent.
It’s amazing how a simple scent can instigate memories and take you home, even when you’re far away. Do you know someone who can’t be home this holiday season? Tell Febreze your story.
Through their Facebook Contest, they’ll deliver $10,000 and all the special holiday memories of home to the one lucky winner. All you have to do is share a loved one who can’t make it home this holiday season and tell Febreze about your friend or family member and why he or she could use a little happiness this year. It’s as simple as that.
The Febreze Best of Holidays Past Contest is going on now and ends November 27, 2012. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges and narrowed down to the top essays. The selected essays will then face a panel of judges who ultimately decide the final winner. There is no public voting – every entry has a fair chance to relive some great memories. Head over to the Febreze Facebook page to enter today.
Who will you be missing this holiday season? Are there specific scents that take you ‘home’?
