Hello there jammers! PopsicleGT here with the third weekly Spirit Snaps post!
This week's theme is Candy. I felt that this theme was fitting because we've all been out trick or treating, and what do we get from trick or treating? That's right, candy!
The word candy originated from the Sanskrit word 'Khanda". "Khanda" means fragment, which is what candy is- a little piece, specifically, a little piece of food. Although candy is usually seen as having sugar in it, originally candy was made using honey. Jelly beans, one of the most popular types of candy, originated from the American Civil War, when a confectioner (candy maker) began sending them to soldiers fighting. Jelly beans are supposedly inspired by Turkish Delights. Another strange fact about candy is that bubble gum was only colored pink early on because pink was the only available food coloring!
Alright, time for the snaps!
This week's winner is Saphire0808 with a pawtastic snapshot of her Rhino!
She wins two rares: Rare Yeti Mask, and Rare Clover Earmuffs!
If you'd like a chance to win some rares, or to get your snapshot featured here next time, then take a snapshot with the theme of Alphas (Liza, Cosmo, Peck, Greely etc) , and you could win a Rare Camouflage Boots and a Rare Ten Gallon Hat! To send in your snapshot you can either post it in the comments, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post it on the Animal Jam G+ Community with the hashtag #ajsalphasnap!
Well, that's all for now! See you in Jamaa!
