Holiday traditions and memories


Dec. 8, 2018 — Many people have a favorite memory of Decembers past, of the crackling of the fireplace, twinkling lights, presents wrapped with care and the smiling faces of those they love most. Maybe it’s the food — traditional holiday feasts, decadent pastries, peppermint candy canes — and seasonal hot beverages. Some families chop their own Christmas tree; some shop the same tree lot year after year. Maybe a Christmas miracle made celebrating the holidays possible.

From now through the end of the year, the Siuslaw News wants to feature the region’s favorite holiday memories and traditions. Hilarious or heartfelt, recent or from those famous “days of yore,” share the warmth of the holidays with your friends and neighbors.

Submissions should be around 250 words, and a photo can be included. The Siuslaw News welcomes all submissions, though reserves the right to edit as needed.
