THE DECEMBER CHALLENGE: HOLIDAY TRADITIONS
Write On! Online’s monthly contests are designed to encourage you to give those writing muscles a workout.
As 2009 comes to an end, let’s celebrate! Write 200 to 400 words on your favorite holiday tradition. It doesn’t matter what you celebrate – Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years, Winter Solstice, or something else. It can be a current tradition or one you remember doing as a child. Don’t have a holiday tradition? Now is a great time to create one.
