I have to chuckle to myself when I hear from writers in the summer or fall who have a Christmas book or article that they are determined to see published for that Christmas. What they fail to realize is that a book will take 18 months to 2 years to get published, and even a magazine could be working a year or more ahead. Actually now is a good time to submit a holiday piece--but for publication next year. The market guide will tell you how far ahead each publication wants their holiday or seasonal pieces--for Christmas or any holiday.

And the benefit of this is that I can be in the Christmas spirit when writing the piece, without my family wondering why I'm playing Christmas carols and decorating in JULY! lol
