Poll Round-Up – Week of December 22, 2012

Posted by on Mon, December 31st, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Hey Swaggernauts! I hope everyone’s having a wonderful last day of the year! Welcome to the final Poll Round-Up of 2012!

 

I, regretfully, had not gotten a flu shot this year, and of course, I ended up catching the flu.  You can get a flu shot at your local drug store, and it’s not too late!  I just went out this past weekend and did it.  It’s worth it!

 

I have never been arrested, and don’t plan on changing that any time soon.  Prisons scare me and I’ll do everything humanly possible to ensure I never end up in one.

 

I may regret admitting this, but I have never had eggnog.  Something about drinking eggs just rubs me the wrong way.  Am I missing out?

 

Looks like most of our Swaggernauts were able to enjoy Christmas day without having to work.  I hope you all had a beautiful day filled with joy, friends and family, and yummy food!

 

Up until this year, I had never heard of Boxing Day.  I did a Swag Search and, in addition to winning 9 Swag Bucks, I learned that Boxing Day is the day after Christmas, where servants and tradesmen would accept gifts from their superiors or employers, known as a “Christmas box”.

 

After I buy something new: a TV, a new camera, etc., I tend to hang on to the box for much longer than is necessary.  I start out by saying, “Well, if something breaks, I’m going to need the box,” and then I kind of just forget about it, and it ends up sitting in the corner collecting dust for about 6 months.  Does this sound familiar to anyone else, or is it just me?

 

I was extremely surprised to see that nearly 50% of our Swaggernauts did not know what MSBD stands for.  Mega Swag Bucks Day, or MSBD, occurs every Friday and  is the day where you have a chance of winning even crazier amounts of Swag Bucks with your searches!

Happy New Year!
