This past weekend when we were buying the Christmas tree and all kinds of lights, decorating the tree, and decorating our house for Christmas, I once again experienced this incredible feeling of a grand holiday approaching, and my family being united in a joyous and oh-so-specially-binding exercise of putting up Christmas decorations, garlands, stockings, lights... I felt what we often call "the spirit of Christmas", and, sure enough, a day later, I conceived the idea of this contest.
"Christmas Spirit" Photo Contest
Post a Christmas picture (or several) to have it entered into a poll that will be held between 26 and 31 December to decide the winners. It may be a picture of your decorated front yard, your Christmas tree, your pet wearing a Christmas costume ...anything that has "the spirit of Christmas" beaming through it. Deadline: Entries accepted until 11:59 pm PST of 12/25/08.
