Have you ever used an advent calendar? I remember as a youngster waking up early in the morning and rushing to see what gift was waiting for me in the window of my hanging-tree advent calendar; the excitement was palpable and the mini-toys that were hidden behind each window were delightful. Iâ€™m happy that I can somehow relive those days with a completely new and exciting advent calendar!
Rentokilâ€™s pest advent calendar is completely different, but offers just as much fun while providing the opportunity to win exciting prizes via our Facebook competition. For those of you who love word-guessing games, this is for you!
How does Rentokilâ€™s advent calendar work?
Rentokilâ€˜s â€œpestâ€ advent calendar (and donâ€™t worry, these arenâ€™t actual pests!) unveils an interesting pest fact every day, along with a letter that will be revealed each day at 9am from the 1st to the 23rd of December. These letters form a 23-letter phrase consisting of 4 words. (Clue: the phrase is both pest and festive season related).
The first person to correctly guess the hidden phrase wins a Mouse Trap game (I remember the Mouse Trap game from my childhood, donâ€™t you?). The four runners-up to correctly guess the phrase, will each win a Mouse USB stick.
All guesses are to be entered in the comments field below the advent calendar, and contestants can enter as many times as they wish.
Now is your chance – try your hand at guessing what the secret phrase could be by visiting our Facebook page to take part in the competition.
