Build-A-Story: What to cover on Christmas

Are you sick of reading stories about people opening presents and singing carols on Christmas Day, and wonder why we don’t write more about people like yourself who have fascinating and unusual day-of traditions? Send me a note and maybe we can introduce millions of readers to the real, messy, crazy, silly and unseen sides of Christmas in Washington. In my 15 or so working Christmases (hanging around with a bunch of non-Christian reporters is my unusual Christmas Day tradition), I’ve covered the semi-predictable (Jews eating Chinese food), the horrifying (murder in northern Virginia) and the sweet (last year, some woman summoned dozens of people to volunteer at the last minute through one short Craigslist post). Let’s see what you’ve got.

Email your suggestions for Christmas Day coverage to or add your suggestion on the comment board below. And have a splendid holiday.
