'Tis the season for making memories with folks unpacking those festive decorations, hanging Christmas tree ornaments and waiting in line to capture those cute photos of their little ones with Santa.

We are asking readers to submit pictures of the family decorating the Christmas tree or children sitting on Santa’s lap to run online and in upcoming editions of the Empire-Tribune.

Send your photos to aowens@empiretribune.com and include your name, the name(s) of those pictured, photo credit, city of residence and a contact number.
