JOHNSTOWN — “My husband, Jim Hollis, absolutely loves Christmas,” wrote Katie Hollis of Johnstown. “He is my interior decorator year round. But Christmas is his favorite time to decorate. We host our annual Christmas party because if you don't have those who are important in your life to share the holidays with, then the decorations have no meaning. My husband has had the manger scene for over 22 years

–  well before we were married. He built the stable our first Christmas we shared together in a tiny apartment.”

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.
