Christmas/Winter holidays Literature ContestStarts November 15th!Christmas/Winter holidays Literature Contest by Scarlettletters
There are two themes for the Christmas/Winter Holiday Literature Contest:
The Nightmare Before Christmas (or other winter holiday) - Please, no entries pertaining to the movie. I want an original nightmare - either a tale (or poem) of the supernatural with a Christmas/Winter Holiday theme, or a holiday related piece - a disaster encountered while shopping or traveling at Christmas, something that goes wrong while decorating...or the classic trauma of a holiday dinner. This one is wide and wild open for imagination.
The Colors of Christmas (or other Winter holiday) - A piece of literature that deals with what you perceive as the colors of the holiday season. You do not have to mention them specifically, but your imagery should leave no doubt.
Other winter holidays include Chanukkah, Ramadan, Winter Solstice, Kwanza, New Years, Twelfth Night ...
The contest runs from 11/15/09 to 1/15/10
