The Spirit of Christmas and New Year

We will celebrate the festive season with stories about giving, sharing, kindness and hope as we say bye to 2013 and welcome the new year. This is the last Meet up for the year, so let's make it count!

Please send in your entries with a short description to me before 22nd Dec. As always, it will be on a first-come first-served basis, so send your stories soon. Please showcase the spirit of the holiday season in your stories and not just highlight popular symbols like Santa, reindeer etc. If you have any questions, please give me a shout.

See y'all on the 29th. :)

      kalpana ji, you were missing for the second half on 29th dec. In fact I searched your name on the net for reaching atta galata. when is your next story session ?

    • Kalpana S.

    It was a meaningful 29th afternoon for a story event. I could see a light of different dimensions for a STORY. The Teller, the listener, the stuff, the presentation style, the tone, the action..OH! it is a different world by it self. It is definitely a powerful amusement cum educational cum cultural cum both-way happier tool keeping cool and smiling. Yes! Next time I wish I share one.

    An common thread that bind all the stories of today's meetup was that they were all BEAUTIFUL. They depicted the spirit of Christmas wonderfully. Missed the entire team
