Innagural Winter Short Story Festival 12:27


She hadn't done Christmas in almost eight months.  
She'd given him a Gone With The Wind Halloween and a Fourth of July with whistling busters, panoramas, phantom balls, and double-break shells, but those were only stopgaps. The man needed cookies, he needed presents, he was absolutely aching for a sleigh filled with Christmas cheer.
A quote from the short story by James Patrick Kelley the Best Christmas Ever. Kelley presents a story of the last remaining man, and his heart ache for someone to share Christmas with. The story is modeled after Capra's Wonderful Life. Caveat Lector: Some of the material is not suitable for young children, but the  overall feel is fantastic.
