All you have to do is express some joy

Attention Dunkin' Donuts fans, free coffee be a-brewin' for you all through the month of December. There are a couple of different ways you can get yours.

First, there's what we're calling the random lucky day contest. On any given weekday between Monday, Dec. 12 and Friday, Dec. 23, about 30 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants around the U.S. will offer 500 customers a free medium coffee. You'll be able to find the participating locations on the Dunkin' Donuts blog.

I know; it does kind of sound like they're just trying to make sure you show up early every weekday through the second half of December.

The other opportunity is the #DDCoffeeJoySweepstakes photo and video sweepstakes. Dunkin' Donuts will give you a new holiday topic or activity each week. Your challenge is to post a photo or video on Instagram incorporating coffee into that topic or activity with the hashtag #DDCoffeeJoySweepstakes.

OK, you got all that? Get your selfie smile ready.

Each week, five participants will win a month's supply of DD coffee, and at the end, one lucky soul will win the grand prize of a year's worth of coffee.

And in the spirit of giving, Dunkin' Donuts will also be making donations to local organizations that bring joy to children whose lives are affected by health issues or hunger. It's part of their Brewing Joy program, and if you ask me, it's the best news of all.
