Here's my entry, which is just a conversation I had in my head (Hey, I'm a writer okay? I'm allowed to be crazy.)
"Christmas is your favorite Holiday?" Someone sayswith a sneer, "don't you hate all the commercialism?"
"Of course I do." I respond
"Then why is it your favorite? Shouldn't you likeThanksgiving or something?"
I give them a gentle smile, "there are so many things tolike about Christmas that have nothingto do with commercialism."
"Like what?" They ask.
"Like the way everyone's hearts seem to open up and weforget about how much we hate eachother for one moment and start to think about those people who have nothing,when we have been given so much."
"Oh." They say.
There is no response to that becausethey feel it too, but only on Christmas.
Just a little reminder if you haven't heard - my short story is going to be published in an anthology and will be available on Kindle Monday. For more details click here.
