Share Somerville Joy with a Video Holiday Greeting

We invite the community to create and share messages of hope and joy for the holiday season. This SMC tradition is a little different this year with our facility being closed to the public, so we’re asking the community to submit their homemade holiday greetings to us! Submissions will be cablecast on Somerville Community Access Television from December through mid-January 2021 and shared on our social media.

We hope you enjoy our own holiday greeting which also doubles as a tutorial on how to make your own and how to send it to us!

Get creative!

Try your hand at stop motion animation or time-lapse, recite a family poem, record a very short form story, or something else! Simply record and send. We can’t wait to see how creative you can get with these!

  • Please keep submissions under a minute.
  • Please no copyrighted material. (Holiday tunes are okay as long as they are in the public domain).
  • Please no calls to action. (i.e. requests for donations, directing people to websites, political messaging, etc).
  • Videos submissions may be edited to conform to cablecasting standards.

Past examples are online here:

Send your finished videos to and include your name/organization. Please refer to our helpful guide on sending videos.
