Here it is the 12th of December and everyone I know is scurrying around to finish up the last details for their holiday celebrations. But wait! Kick back a minute with a relaxing beverage and catch your breath. Unwind. Read something special that reflects the season.
Christmas has given rise to a very special body of literature. Consider the differing tones of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carole, Clement Clarke Moore’s A Visit from St. Nicholas (also known as ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas) and the Christmas story as told by St. Luke in The Holy Bible.
I suspect everyone treasures at least one literary offering celebrating the spirit of the season. At Page & Spine, we’ve been lucky to attract entries from friends old and new, and that’s how our Christmas Contest winners shook out. Consider these selections our holiday gift to you, our readers. It’s our hope that you’ll add our winning entries to your list of Christmas favorites. In our opinion (which is never humble) they’re both worthy of the honor.
Without further ado, Page & Spine is proud to announce the winners of our 2014 Christmas Story and Poem Contests, each to receive a $100 prize and appear in the December 26th edition of Page & Spine--
Christmas Story Contest Winner--I Believe… by Ieva Karols
Christmas Poetry Contest Winner--The Shawl by Sandra Stoner-Mitchell
Congratulations, ladies. And thank you to everyone who entered contests. Our judges enjoyed your entries and appreciated your effort.
Wishing all our readers the Peace and Joy of the Season,
The Writers and Staff of Page & Spine
