NPR Ornament Contest
Melody at National Public Radio just emailed me with a contest for snarky crafty types (that's you!). They're asking for people to put together D.I.Y. Christmas/Haunakah projects that have to do with current events. Whip up a homemade menorah or christmas ornament that deals with a news story for the past year. Here are some examples:
*A Mel Gibson menorahYou can do better than that, though! What about an upside-down hanging Kramer ornament? Have an old Blackberry to recycle? Turn it into a Mark Foley ornament! Don't forget your tribute to George Allen's Jewish heritage! The Macaca Menorah! The possibilities are endless. Show NPR what you've got, and don't forget to tell 'em that Supernaturale Sent you.
*A global warming Christmas ornament
*A red state /blue state ornament
NPR would like to ask our readers to post the pictures on Flickr.com with the tag word: NPRHOLIDAYCONTEST. They will feature the best designs in the coming weeks, and also link to individual websites, if the designs are selected.
If you have any questions, please feel to contact Melody Kramer at email@example.com. A note: a menorah design must conform to Jewish law and also be capable of safely supporting nine lit candles.
