GREAT AMERICAN CHRISTMAS
USA Networks and the Producers of "Laguna Beach" want to show the world that the spirit of Christmas is alive and well… but we need your help!
What does Christmas mean to you? How do you celebrate it?
From bright lights in big cities to quiet celebrations in the country, from the craze of shopping for presents to the peace of a midnight mass, NBC wants to explore the contemporary spirit of Christmas in all its diversity, meaning, and wonder.
-The family whose Christmas lights are the envy of all the neighbors?
-Meeting your in-laws or bringing your significant other home to your family for the first time?
-Spending your first holiday away from your family?
-Worried that this might be the year your kids decide they don't believe in Santa Claus?
-A self-proclaimed "Grinch" who hates Christmas OR sick of the "Scrooge" in your family who needs to learn to love the holiday?
-Starting a new holiday tradition with your friends?
-Someone who has a specific wish for the holiday season?
-Building or moving into a new home where you will host a holiday gathering for the first time?
-Expecting this Christmas to be different from all the rest, for some major reason?
We want to hear from you. NBC will follow a selection of families and individuals whose Christmas stories will create a portrait of the many ways Americans celebrate the holiday season- and overcome any obstacles that might be in the way.
If you have a story to tell, please contact us now!
To be considered, you should:
-Make a brief 3 to 5 minute videotape telling us a little bit about yourself and your plans for the holiday- VHS only, please!
-Include a few photos of yourself and your family/friends, as pertinent (please, no family heirlooms… we cannot guarantee photos will be returned)
Mail ASAP (but to arrive no later than November 1) to:
