Nutcracker collection

— “My son, Ray Ward, has been collecting nutcrackers and smokers since he was 5 years old,” wrote Brenda Ward of Upper Yoder Township. “He is 19 years old now. We had to move them to the top of the piano this year because there were so many.”

Throughout the month of December, The Tribune-Democrat will be running photos and stories of favorite decorations as submitted by our readers.

The decorations will be featured on our front page. Those not published will appear on our website.

To participate, send your photos and information to Arlene Johns at ajohns@trib­ or mail to The Tribune-Democrat, P.O. Box 340, Johnstown, PA 15907.
