The Leg Lamp in the store window is your first clue that the Paper Clip in downtown Hamilton is having a holiday writing competition.

The business and art supply store is celebrating the movie "A Christmas Story" with a colorful window display, which leads to the contest.

Suzanne tells us that entrants need to write about their favorite Christmas memory. It can be funny, nostalgic, sad or all three combined. The length of the story is not important. But you need to submit your "true life adventure" by December 22.

By the way, the staff will pick the winner in a drawing and that person will get a $50 gift certificate to the Paper Clip.

This seems to be a not-so-sneaky way to get you in that Christmas nostalgic mood that seems to happen every year. And, their window display makes you want to watch the original movie again!
