I had several entries for the Christmas competition, and I enjoyed reading them all. I singled out Darlene Foster’s ‘The Bright Lights of Christmas‘ as a winner, which instead of fake commercialism, incorporates the true meaning of Christmas.
Congratulations, Darlene, here’s your laurel to display, and do I have your permission to post this story in the anthology I’ll compile in 2020?
Don’t forget to check out these other great stories and poems below:
Richard Dee : A Winter’s Tale https://richarddeescifi.co.uk/a-winters-tale-2/

D.G Kaye: What’s in Your Stocking? https://dgkayewriter.com/share-your-christmas-short-story-or-poem-stevie-turner/

Toritto: Thoughts on Writing Out Christmas Cards
S R Bottch: Today I Smell Gingerbread. A Holiday Story https://srbottch.com/2019/12/15/today-i-smell-gingerbread-a-holiday-story/
The next competition will be in February.
I had a look through my most popular posts, and ‘Share Your Short Story’ and ‘Share Your Short Story / Winners’ seem to be the most viewed, and so thanks to all who have supported the contest in the past.
I’ll have a bit of a blogging break after today, as I will be deluged with relatives and then Sam and I are off to the van for a 5 day break on the 27th. So all that’s left to say is happy Christmas, and I hope the New Year brings all you wish for. See you in 2020. Love from Stevie. x
