This past week, in 22nd Century Media’s 2015 Holiday Guide, we announced the return of the Holiday Card Contest, which proved to be a lot of fun and a big success this past holiday season.

We also announced that in this week’s edition of The Homer Horizon we would announce the prizes you can win by entering the contest (because we hear that announcing future announcements helps build hype).

So without further adieu, you fine readers can check out “The Prizes” sidebar accompanying this article to see what you’re playing for this season.
