The Deseret Morning News will once again hold its Christmas writing contest, "Christmas I Remember Best." Christmas is a time to remember and reflect on Christmases past. Therefore we will be asking our readers to put into original stories their most memorable Christmas.

Entries will be accepted until Dec. 3.

Four to six stories will be chosen for publication in the newspaper the week before Christmas with the final story appearing on Christmas Day. True-life stories should be original and no more than 800 words in length. The editor/judges prefer stories that cover a wide range of Christmas experiences, including humor. Winners will be notified.

Ideally, stories should be written on a computer or typewriter or printed out legibly so they can be easily read.

The author's name, address, daytime and evening phone numbers along with an e-mail address, if possible, must be included.

Duplicate submissions are discouraged. Remember, the deadline for submission is Monday, Dec. 3.

Address entries to "Christmas Best," c/o Deseret Morning News, 30 E. 100 South, Suite 400, P.O. Box 1257, Salt Lake City, UT 84110. Fax entries to 801-237-2528 or e-mails will be accepted at [email protected].
