In celebration of Christmas, the following three short stories are here to not only entertain private readers and reading groups alike, but to provide a moral for those who are paying attention. But not in a lame way. In a fun way.
“The Fountain of Truth”: On Christmas Eve, at the Kingdom Affair restaurant, something miraculous has happened. Families who are normally secretive with each other are spilling their guts out at the dinner table, to everyone’s surprise, and these diners are waking up to a shocking truth that their lives aren’t perfect. What are they sharing? How are they reacting? And who’s responsible for this mess?
“Christmas Log”: A radio station sponsors a million-dollar contest on Christmas Day and chooses four distinctly different individuals to participate. No details are given until the day of the contest, but each contestant must abide by the same rules, and each contestant must commit to the contest until they are able to complete the task they are given. Even though they are blind to the specifics, they go in willingly, as a million dollars are on the line. Then, once they are in place, they are given the shocking truth of what they must do to win their prize, and they must figure out the best way to handle their new reality without going insane.
“St. Nick’s Gym”: The “true” origin story of Santa Claus, and how he became the figure we all know and love today. You may never look at Santa the same way again…unless this is exactly the story you’ve always believed in. But it’s probably not, so time for an education!
