At the beginning of the month, we announced our Holiday Six-Word Story Contest, asking you to sum up what the holidays mean to you in exactly six words. Then every day for 12 weekdays, we chose a winning story to share on our Facebook wall.*
Your stories were funny and touching, made us laugh and made us smile, but most of all, they made us reflect on the holiday season. It was a tough decision (who knew how creative our community could be!) but here are the 12 winning stories that made the list:

Brother's deployment over, primary nourishment achieved! - by Kirsten H.
