We took photo submissions for 2 weeks and the entries did not disappoint. We had birds, farm animals, dogs, and cats showing their festive attitudes. We also had quite a few that clearly were not feeling the Christmas spirit yet. Check out the 12 finalists in the gallery below and make sure you vote for your favorite every day. That’s right, you can vote each day to guarantee that your favorite wins the prize.
