CL's 'Five Days of Christmas': Thursday



UPDATE: The winning email came in at 1:09 p.m. Check back tomorrow for the last day of CL's Five days of Christmas. We're giving away an HP Mini, courtesy of Coretek!

For your merriment, Creative Loafing presents its "Five Days of Christmas" giveaway this week. Every day, we will post a five-question quiz. The first person to submit the correct answers by email to will receive a prize. The answers to the questions can be found in our website archives, via stories published within the past six months. The first three days' worth of quizzes were relatively easy, but today they're a little harder - and the prize a little better. On Friday - when the questions will be the most difficult - players will be competing for a brand-new laptop (courtesy of Coretek).
