UPDATED DATES

we wanted to give you ladies some time to write the awesome holiday fics we know you're got hiding in those beautful heads of yours!

Contest Premise

Ever feel like some of the same songs are overdone, especially around Christmas? Perhaps the holiday cheer is getting you down? Do you have that relative who plays ONE song, and only that song for way too long? Or maybe this doesn't resonate with you at all, and you're the one who LOVES the Christmas music and could listen to it all year long.

Whatever the case is we want a fic about it. Write a one-shot that expresses the true holiday fanatic or cynic within. And don't worry, we won't tell if you're really the Grinch ;) We just want a story that will get us all in the Christmas spirit!

Write a o/s that somehow involves a Christmas song. It could be based on the song, or the song could simply be playing in the car while the characters take a drive to see Christmas lights. We don't care as long as a Christmas song is somehow involved! Remember, not everything is all cheery and bright. So we'll take those stories about Scrooges too.

Get creative and have fun!
