A story like this will come along and just break your heart...

If you have lived in Amarillo for any amount a time you have been touched by Melissa Bartlett's voice. Whether it has been listening to hear why you are getting ready for your day on morning radio or getting fired up to cheer on the bulls hockey team Melissa has touched us all.

But now, we have an opportunity as the people of Amarillo to give back to our Melissa.

Melissa has been diagnosed with a serious case of SCROOGE. Yes, that is correct. She hates Christmas... she doesn't like Christmas music, Christmas Sweaters, Christmas hugs. NONE OF IT. Rumor's around town are saying that she is taking a vacation next week just to avoid the Christmas cheer.

If you would like to help with the "Make Melissa's Merry" cause there are a few things you can do.

  1. Use the hashtag #MakeMelissaMerry to spread awareness
  2. If you see her in public give her a hug and sing your favorite Christmas Carol to her
  3. Write out your favorite Christmas memory and share it to her Facebook wall
  4. Most importantly pray she gets visited by the ghost of Christmas past, present, and future so she will turn from her ways.

We love you, Melissa! Thanks for being a good sport. :)
