‘Tis the Season … for holiday stories!

What’s your favourite holiday memory? Do you have any unique traditions? Tell us about them!

The stockings have been hung by the chimney with care, the chestnuts are roasting on the open fire, and sugarplums are dancing in everyone’s heads.

Okay, maybe that’s going a little far, but here at the Mirror, we’re definitely trying to get into the spirit of the season and asking you, our wonderful readers, to join in the fun.

What we’d love is for you to share your holiday stories with us!

Did Aunt Mabel come to visit one year and volunteer to cook the turkey, with hillarity ensuing?

Do you have an annual tradition that puts you in the Christmas spirit, no matter how you are feeling before it happens every year?

What’s your favourite holiday memory?

Share it with us, and we will, in turn, share it with the community in one of our upcoming holiday editions!

Oh, and in case having us share your story with the community isn’t enough, we’re entering everyone who submits a story before Dec. 21 into a draw for two tickets to their choice of an upcoming show at the Tidemark Theatre!

(Which concert options you’ll get to choose from is being kept under “wraps.”)

We only ask that you keep your stories relatively short (about 300 words would be great), you keep them PG rated (or maybe PG13) and you send a photo along with them, if possible. Also be sure to include your name and contact information (including your phone number, which will not be published) so we can give you your prize should you be selected in the draw.

You can send your stories to the editor by email (editor@campbellrivermirror.com), by direct message on Facebook, or even the old-fashioned way of bringing them right to the office (250 Dogwood Street, #104).
