Tell us about your fondest local holiday tradition
Come holiday time, what special local tradition do you look forward to the most? Whether it's a dazzling holiday tree or menorah lighting ceremony, a phenomenal concert, or a fun event like a Santa running race, we want to hear about it! The best description will win a holiday gift package of made-in-the-West goods hand-selected by Sunset editors, at a $300 total value, including luxe Coyuchi pajamas and an iPad mini case.

Share how your town or area celebrates the holidays in its own unique way in 150 words or less. In your description, be sure to include: the name of the tradition or event; where it takes place (city/state); and when it takes place (specific dates, please).

Submit your stories through October 15. A panel of Sunset editors will choose a winner based on the creativity of the description (65%) and the relevance to the theme (35%). We will announce the winner after November 6.

Thank you for your entry
