The Hurricane Breeze special Christmas edition featuring Baby’s First Christmas has been published every year since 1984. This year’s Baby’s First Christmas will be published on December 22nd. Proud parents or grandparents or anyone else who wants to do something nice can enter baby by sending a photograph and some information about the baby such as town of residence, birthday, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, favorite baby food, favorite toys, or just about any interesting material that you have about the baby or babies.
You may write up baby’s Christmas message, but it is not necessary. We can do the write up if we have the information. This is a free service. There is no charge. The deadline to submit a write up or information and photograph is December 8.
If you wish to have baby’s picture returned, you must do ALL of the following: (1) have baby’s name on back of picture, (2) name and address of person to whom the photograph is to be returned, and (3) a stamped, addressed envelope which matches the address on the back of the photograph. The picture should be of the baby alone unless it is baby posed with a pet. The only multiple person photos that we allow are for twins.
Photographs and information may be mailed to: Baby’s First Christmas, Hurricane Breeze, P.O. Box 310, Hurricane, WV 25526.
Photos and info may also be submitted to our email address: hurricanebreeze@ citynet.net. To be eligible for Baby’s First Christmas, a baby must be born after December 25, 2021. Some late November and December babies born in 2021 may not have entered last year’s Baby’s First Christmas because photographs were not available in time to meet the deadline. These babies and these babies only are eligible for Baby’s Second Christmas. The deadline for Baby’s Second Christmas is the same as for Baby’s First Christmas, December 8.
Please try to enter early and avoid the last minute rush.
