Because of where Christmas and New Year’s days land in the week this season, print deadlines are earlier in coming days — in fact, the extra-early deadline for the Dec. 27 has already gone by (as of 5 p.m. Dec. 19).

Deadline for the issue of Jan. 3 is just one day earlier; in other words, 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27. As always, even earlier is always best, sent by email to dernest@villagesoup.com.
