A Christmas Story

This is the last #XmasLinky for the year, as I'll be off until Feb as of Wednesday.

Stay safe, both on the roads and in the air, don't forget to wash your hands regularly and all the other COVID jazz.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and here's to a better 2021 for us all!

A little Christmas tale I wrote many years ago - 100 words exactly:

She knew Santa looked at who was naughty or nice and gave gifts accordingly. She'd been good all year, not a cross word, always helpful and kind. Yet the Christmas tree was still bare, not a single gift at the base. The stocking hung by the chimney with care was also empty. Disappointment and confusion would reign yet again on Christmas morning.

He could think of a present for every single child on the face of the earth but didn't ever remember to leave something for her. Mrs Claus looked at her exhausted husband and wondered if he'd ever change.

  1. ...sometimes it's more fun to be naughty!

  2. He will never change. I like being naughty better too.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  3. Well, did SHE get HIM a present? I say, give him a break, he's in the "gifts for children" business. Many husbands are poor gift givers, and hints don't even register.

    1. Interesting response!! Maybe that's my next story....

  4. Thanks for these vivid reds--and blues, and greens, and golds!
