This note from equality ohio is specific to Ohio, but I kind of like the idea for people in general to do:
Make Your Legislators' Holiday Gay.
Join in the winter holiday spirit by making a personalized winter holiday ornament or decoration to give to your legislators. Make one for both your Senator and your Representative. Represent your family on this ornament or decoration, whether you are a couple, couple with children, single with children, LGBT with parents, the child of LGBT parents, whatever your family arrangement, make your family visible to our state decision makers.
When you are done creating your ornament or decoration, send it to us with a card attached with a short note for your legislator. The deadline is November 25, 2009. We will personally deliver them on December 2, 2009, the 5 year anniversary of the day the marriage ban took effect in Ohio.
50 W. Broad St., Suite 1970
Columbus, OH 43215
Love making ornaments? Make a couple extra. We do have a few legislators who might get missed in this process. We wouldn't want them to get left out.

Our legislators are and will be politically powerful in the future. When Ohio repeals the 2004 marriage ban, we will need our legislators' help. We will also need them to repeal the state Defense of Marriage Act and ultimately, change the Ohio Statute that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
Let's be creative about our storytelling. Say it with an ornament or decoration this year!
