Through Wednesday, December 22, "followers" of @DunkinDonuts on Twitter are invited to submit photos of themselves in their favorite holiday-themed sweater, using the special hashtag of #HoliDDay. At the end of the week, Dunkin’ Donuts will pick three photos, which will earn $60 Dunkin’ Donuts cards.

Finally, many Dunkin' Donuts restaurants will be open until 6:00 p.m. or later on Christmas Eve for shoppers in need of coffee and snacks, including the holiday favorites of hot and iced gingerbread coffee and lattes, gingerbread donuts and delicious gingerbread muffins topped with white icing drizzle.
