There are Christmas ornaments that help fill out a tree. And then there are the ones that have been in your family for generations.

Or the one you got on vacation. Or the first one your child made as a school craft project.

This Christmas season, we’d like readers to share the stories behind their favorite Christmas ornaments.

It could be one that hangs on your tree, or one that sits on your mantel. If it’s most special to you, that’s the one we’d like to know more about.

Please send a photo of your ornament accompanied by an explanation of no more than 50 words about why it’s your favorite. As always, we need your name, where you live and contact information.

You can email your submission to Cindy Gregorian at or mail it to her at 1729 Grand Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64108.

Deadline for submissions is December 2.

We will choose some of our favorite stories to share in December.
