MN Woman Wins Hallmark Christmas Movie Marathon Contest
My wife would have done it even if there wasn't a $1,000 prize!
A Minneapolis woman has won the coveted opportunity to earn $1,000 watching 24 Hallmark Christmas movies over the course of 12 days.
Jasmine Stringer was picked out of 218,000 entries for the contest put on by CenturyLinkQuote.com.
"We're looking for a lover of all things Christmas, G-Rated romcoms, and too-close-to-home family dramas to watch 24 Hallmark Christmas movies in 12 days," reads the contests details online. "If you think that's you, we'll give you $1,000 to critique a lineup of festive guilty pleasures."
Rule #1: You don't like Christmas—you love it.
Rule #2: You must be over 18-years-old and be a US resident.
Rule #3: You know how to work the Gram, Twitter, or Facebook. We want someone who's willing to document their Hallmark marathon with their followers.
We want you to have opinions—lots of them! Think the grumpy Grandpa turned jolly Santa was a little overdone? Felt like the plot was a bit half-baked? Be as honest as possible in your review.
Stringer, an entrepreneur behind the companies JB Stringer and lifestyle brand Carpe Diem with Jasmine, fit the bill. According to Bring Me the News, she already hosts annual Hallmark movie night parties for her friends; the dress code is strictly pajamas.
In fact, Stringer and her friend Sharon, who's joining her in her endeavor, have already gone above and beyond the challenge; they watched five Hallmark Christmas movies this past weekend, and three of them weren't on the required list!
Along the way, Stringer is documenting the process on social media and Youtube.
