From Thanksgiving sides to Christmas cookies, the holidays are rich with great recipes. If you have an original recipe, submit it to the Holiday Recipe Contests for cash prizes and publication!

Here at the Almanac, we are all about the holidays. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is a calendar, after all! See the prizes and contest rules below.

We encourage you to post your recipes and photos on social and tag us (#theoldfarmersalmanac). This will NOT offer any extra advantage to your chances, but we love to see it!
