With Christmas coming, we're asking readers to share their favorite Christmas memory. It's OK if it reads like a Hallmark movie script or a scene from "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," but it has to be true and you have to tell the story in 300 words or less. We'll publish the best ones in The Journal on Christmas Day.

Email your submission to newstips@providencejournal.com by Dec. 18. Please include Christmas memory in the subject line.
