Whatever you celebrate -- Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or something else -- we want to know how you make the season bright. Do you have a favorite ornament or decoration that you display year after year? Or is there a decorating ritual that has special meaning to you?

Your decoration doesn't have to be fancy or expensive or even beautiful. We're looking for holiday heirlooms with a story behind them.

Share the story of your favorite ornament or other decoration, and what makes it special to you. Send a few sentences and a digital photo to: Or mail a snapshot and brief description to: Kim Palmer, Star Tribune Newsroom, 425 Portland Av. S., Minneapolis, MN 55488.

We'll feature some of the most interesting tales in an upcoming story. But don't wait too long: We'll choose the best stories on Dec. 7.
