Pucker Up with the NIVEA Kiss of the Year Contest! {Romantic Kiss Prep Kit Giveaway}

During those times that my mind wanders and I ponder the strange, unanswerable questions that float through my head (What if the sky really was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs? or Is there really a need for my pinky toe?) I've wondered about how many of our common traditions came to be.

Who were the first people to decide to shake hands upon meeting? And when did someone realize that a hug provides reassurance and feels good? Even further, who thought it would be a good idea to actually kiss someone? Why would you press your lips onto someone else's just for the heck of it?

Whatever the reason, someone did. And here we are, centuries later, and a kiss can represent something special in relationships of all kinds. So why not celebrate the evening where a kiss can be more than just a kiss?

This year NIVEA is gearing up to do just that and make New Year's Eve the best yet with their ever-popular "Kiss of the Year" Contest!

Nivea Kiss of the Year

If you've turned on the television at midnight on December 31st, you've seen kiss after kiss take place as the ball drops in Times Square in New York. But NIVEA has taken things further and is giving one lucky couple the chance to turn their New Year's Eve kiss into an experience of a lifetime in their "Kiss of the Year" Contest.

To enter, simply visit NIVEA on Facebook and tell them why you and your special someone deserve the perfect start to what could be your best year ever. The lucky winning couple will be whisked away to New York City with the full VIP treatment to kick off 2013 and have their kiss take place on the Times Square stage with celebrity hosts Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza!

New Year's Eve in Times Square

The entry period for the "Kiss of the Year" Contest runs through November 7, so be sure to head over and submit your story today!

Not only might you end up with an unforgettable experience, but the winning couple's midnight kiss will be featured in US Weekly Magazine, so who knows? Maybe the image will end up being captured and remembered for years to come! You and your loved one might end up rivaling Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh from Gone with the Wind...

Gone with the Wind

...or Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray in Dirty Dancing...

Dirty Dancing

...or Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in Spiderman...

Spiderman kiss

...or heck, the sweet kisses in just about all of the animated Disney movies!

Disney kisses

While my husband and I have shared kisses in romantic locations across the world, I always find the image of us in a near-kiss during our first dance at our wedding reception to be one of my very favorite.

Maybe we'll have the chance to recreate this scene in Times Square in just a few months!

If you want to kick off 2013 with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, be sure to enter NIVEA's "Kiss of the Year" Contest today! And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared to pucker up with soft, kissable lips, because...

One lucky person will win a "Romantic Kiss" Prep Kit* from NIVEA!

*Kit includes (5) Lip Care sticks: A Kiss of Shimmer, A Kiss of Berry Swirl, A Kiss of Olive Oil & Lemon, A Kiss of Recovery and For Men Replenishing; (1) Happy Sensation Lotion; and (1) Touch of Water Lily Shower Gel

(Enter with the Rafflecopter form below. If you have any questions or problems entering, there is a video tutorial found here that can help.)
