Is there a special Christmas that you will recall forever?

It is a holiday tradition at The Beacon-News to invite readers to share the stories of their most memorable Christmas.

These special memories will be featured in the Christmas Day edition of The Beacon-News.

In past holiday seasons, readers have written of Christmas meals with families and with strangers, of being at home with loved ones and in distant lands making new friends or fighting in wars, of cherished toys both in times of plenty and times of want.
