Show Your Holiday Spirit

By now your Christmas tree may be decorated and lights strung outside your home. But what about your front door, side or garage doors, barn or apartment door? Decorate them too and potentially win a great prize and bragging rights with your photo published in the Chatham News + Record!

Join Chatham Literacy’s Decorated Door Event by entering a photo of your sparkling, funny, kid-friendly, elegant or crazy creation by December 18th.

Dazzle neighbors, co-workers and friends in your apartment or residential living complex with a door decorated for Christmas, Kwanza, New Year’s Eve, Hanukkah, Boxing Day, Our Lady of Guadalupe Feast Day, or even the first day of winter­­. Register each door for $20, decorate, snap and email a photo of your door creation by December 18th.

“Rally your neighborhood, residential facility, business or family and friends to join the fun,” said Vicki Newell, Executive Director of Chatham Literacy. “Who knows…your decorated door just might inspire or bring laughter to others in what’s been a very difficult year.”

“If your front door is already decorated, you’re halfway there!  Now just register and send a photo.  OR decorate your side door or gift a neighbor or relative with a great door,” Newell said. “For example, decorate not only your front door for Christmas, but also your barn door for New Year’s Eve.”

Chatham Literacy’s Holiday Decorated Door Event is also a great way to involve missed friends and family members.  During our COVID-19 isolation why not involve them in this creative process by sharing photos with each other of your decorated doors and encouraging some fun friend and family rivalry.

Chatham Literacy helps adults living and working in Chatham County acquire the literacy and educational skills then need to function successfully in society. The registration deadline is December 18th.
