Europe’s largest retailer of magnetic bracelets (by range) Magnetic Products Store, is doing a giveaway of a magnetic bracelet to one lucky man or woman, from their Facebook page to “brighten up someone’s winter.” The rationale behind the giveaway, is that winter is dark and gloomy and people need something to cheer them up a little.
“In December we have Christmas and the New Year to look forward to,” an MPS® spokesman said. “But in January, the seasonal celebrations are behind us, but there’s a long bout of cold, rain and gloom ahead of us before the first shoots of spring pop their timid heads through the frozen soil. And to add to our woes, we’ve got all those Christmas credit card bills to pay.
The good thing about magnetic bracelets is that they work at many levels. At the most obvious level, there are, of course, the magnets. But as we’ve said many times before, it’s not just about the strength of the magnets. Magnetic jewellery is designed to be pleasing to the eye. It is the ultimate placebo – in the literal sense. (Nerdy, scholarly note: Placebo is Latin for “I shall please.”)
However, the giveaway won’t last long. results are due on February 6, unless they decide to extend it. So if you want to enter, you’d better get your skates on. Just click on the link above, log in to Facebook and register.
