Thanks to everyone who joined us, in person and over the air, for Homemade Holiday Shorts 2013 on December 15th in the MC Erny Gallery at WHQR. The event featured music by Whiskey Creek and readings of short stories by our popular commentators Annie Gray Johnston, Gwenyfar Rohler, Shane Fernando, and WHQR News Director Rachel Lewis Hilburn, reading "Kurisumasu" by Mebane Boyd, the winning story of the first-ever Homemade Holiday Shorts Story Contest.
While the live performance is over, you can still get in the holiday spirit with these wonderful stories from our story contest:
"A Jar of Christmas Cheer," by Patricia Walters Lowery
"Christmas Journal," by Ray Funderburk
"Oh! Christmas Tree" by Mary Kaye Hester
"Crying with Santa," by Katharine Frazier
"No Take Backs," by Meghan K. Barnes

All proceeds of the event benefited WHQR.
