Can you tell us about a small-town Christmas?

Have you ever visited a small town in the West that has an especially memorable Christmas season? Or perhaps you live in such a place.

Sunset is looking for Western towns with strong holiday traditions or events that visitors can watch or join--sleigh rides, caroling, dramas, concerts. These towns may have a main street with old buildings and pleasing Yuletide decorations, or pleasant places to shop, dine, and sleep.

Towns that Sunset editors and photographers visited last year included Sandpoint, Idaho, a snow-filled logging town jingling with horse-drawn sleigh and trolley rides; and Palmer Lake, Colorado, where townfolk and visitors search for a Yule log hidden in the nearby hills.

Along California's coast, late 1800s Arroyo Grande hosts a lively version of Charles Dickens' A christmas Carol. And in southeastern Arizona, the mining town of Bisbee styles itself as a "Santa's Workshop" with daily December events.

If you know of other towns with such attractions, please write to small-town Christmas Report, Sunset Magazine, 80 Willow Rd., Menlo Park, Calif. 94025.
