Here are a just a few ideas of things we've love to see:
Community Events: Heading out to the Lighting of the Tunnel, an 1818 Christmas, local parades and tree lighting ceremonies? Then, take your camera along and share the joy of the event with your neighbors here in Sunday Stories.
Elf on the Shelf: Is your elf up to his usual antics this Christmas? Share a photo.
Cherished Holiday Traditions: Maybe it's a favorite annual event or attraction that you refuse to miss. Maybe you journey across the mountain to cut down your Christmas tree, or snuggle up in your pajamas and go out looking at holiday lights. Whatever the tradition, we want to hear about it. Simply share a photo or a paragraph or two telling us about your favorite holiday traditions.
Home for the Holidays: How does your family or community celebrate the holidays? From family gatherings, decorations and picturesque scenes of your decorated home, we want to showcase all that comes to mind when one thinks of being "home for the holidays" in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. So send us your pictures or write in and tell us what's special to you about being "home for the holidays" in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Not in the area, tell us what you miss most.
Are you ready to get started?
Well, then grab your camera - or even your iPhone - and take some photos. Just be sure to send the photos as attachments to an email, and not as a link to any outside site. Make sure you identify the folks in the picture, so that all your friends and family members will recognize them in the scrapbook.
The word count for stories should not exceed 300 words.
Make sure to include your name, as the person submitting it, and a phone number or email address where we can reach you just in case we have any questions. (Don't worry, though. We won't publish that part!)
Email your contributions (along with your name and address) to: [email protected] Or mail them to: Holiday Scrapbook, Attn: Carmen Musick, Kingsport Times-News, 701 Lynn Garden Drive, Kingsport, Tenn. 37662. We can't wait to see and share your stories and photos.
