Holiday stories wanted for Observer’s Christmas edition

Deadline approaching for readers to submit favourite holiday memories

Choosing a tree is a wonderful Canadian Christmas tradition

With the first bit of snow making its appearance this week, thoughts of a winter wonderland have filled my head. This year, more than anything, I’m yearning to spend some time in the beautiful, crisp December air with my family.

Watching my children enjoy the finer things in life — tubing, snowboarding, outdoor ice skating and piping hot chocolate — is the top item on my Christmas wish list, and I’m hoping Santa agrees.

But I’m also hoping to hear from our readers this year, to help us put together a holiday edition of the Observer. You can help by sharing your holiday-inspired story with us. Do you have a special tradition with a story behind it? What are you hoping for this holiday season? Do you have a wish list you’d like to share, or a favourite Agassiz or Harrison holiday photo?

Send them to us! Of the 250 editions I’ve helped publish since becoming editor of the Observer, my favourites are the ones that include stories written by our readers. Everybody has a story — or several — inside of them that is worthy of being heard. And Christmas is a great time to share them.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, Dec. 16 and the special edition will run on Thursday, Dec. 19.

So, get writing and make sure to email your submissions to news@ahobserver.com. Older photos can be brought to The Observer office for reproduction, and immediate return.

For more information, phone 604-796-4302.
