Ho Ho Ho! Welcome To The Doctor Who 12 Days of GIFmas!

First off: this one isn’t a contest. This one is more like our 30 Days of Summer Break Doctor Who — we’re just doing this for fun! And fame! And Tumblarity!

Beginning tomorrow Wednesday 12/14 we will start the Doctor Who 12 Days of GIFmascelebrating some of our favorite holiday-themed Doctor Who animated gifs!

And because we want to see how creative you can be, we’re hoping to see gifs for all the holidays including (but not limited to) Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve, or whatever else you can come up with.

Here’s our example:

Need a tutorial on how to make animated gifs? Check out some of the posts at the Tumblr tag gif+tutorial!

So create your holiday gif, post it to your Tumblr, and tag it doctor who 12 days of gifmas.

We’ll reblog some of our favorites every day leading up to the premiere of the Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe!

Create a fond memory, win a limited edition TARDIS hoodie in the process!

Ok. It’s time for another holiday giveaway courtesy of Doctor Who Tumblr and BBCAmericaShop!

The last three giveaways were fun — first you made fanart, then you wore holiday sweaters, then you went on a scavenger huntnow we want you to do something nice…

BBCAmericaShop has these exclusive videos of Matt and Karen answering three holiday questions:

  • What is your fondest holiday memory?
  • What is the best holiday gift you’ve received?
  • What is the best holiday gift you’ve ever given?

Matt was excited about giving his dad a watch.

Karen was excited about giving her friend nostril hair trimmers.

We want to know what are you going to do to create a ‘fondest holiday memory’ for a friend or family or neighbor this year?

Will you spend time with a friend you haven’t seen in a while? Cook Christmas breakfast for a parent? Give your little brother or sister a big box of Hanukkah gelt chocolates? Buy someone a combination wristwatch + nostril hair trimmers?

Whatever it is, share it and it just might win you something awesome!

  • Create a post telling us how you’re going to create a fondest holiday memory for someone you love.
  • Use text, use photos, use video — whatever works best (as usual, have fun with your post!)
  • Tag it doctor+who+tumblr+fondest+holiday+memory

We will pick one winner at random to win limited edition official Doctor Who TARDIS hoodie!

This is what it looks like:

This is what it would look like on you if it were a t-shirt with the logo on the front and you were Matt Smith:

And this is what we would look like if we were in the same room as you and the above were true:

And we’re sorry. We’re so so sorry, non-America, but again — this giveaway is only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States (including the District of Columbia.)

Read all of the official terms and conditions here.

If you win and you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign for you.
