Tell us your best Christmas gift story

For most adults fortunate enough to have a youngster on your Christmas shopping list, buying a gift for that special someone can take us back in time.

Back to when we were kids ourselves, when it was other adults—our parents, other relatives or family friends—who were buying gifts for us.

For just about everyone, those gifts spark memories which we carry with us throughout our lives, some positive and some not always so positive. But they resonate in the back of our minds from year to year.

The Capital News would like to tap into some of those stories within the auspices of a new contest. We’re asking our readers to submit a tale about the most memorable Christmas gift you ever received as a child, whether it was thoughtful, generous, unusual or just plain tacky.

We will collect your submissions and choose what we feel is the story with the most resonance as winner of a $100 gift certificate.

Submissions can be emailed to us at edit@kelownacapnews.com or dropped off at our office, 2495 Enterprise Way in Kelowna, V1X 7K2.

Also, watch for a contest entry button link on our website at www.kelownacapnews.com.

The entry deadline is Dec. 11, 5 p.m.

We encourage an open exchange of ideas on this story's topic, but we ask you to follow our guidelines for respecting community standards.
