Christmas is For Everyone

I heave a sigh of relief as I reach the school hall in time. I pass by an exhibit showing a collision of stars (maybe the big bang theory) and another on the evolution of hats. I hear my daughter calling me, eager to show her history project.

We pass by other parents who are marvelling at their kid’s assignments and discussing whose would win the prize; until we reach a group of chuckling parents.

There stood a proud dinosaur with a Santa hat—and a note in my daughter’s handwriting arguing that dinosaurs celebrated Christmas ages ago. Needless to say, even though she didn’t win the history competition, she certainly received a lot of appreciation from the school’s creative writing teacher.

The photo prompts have been given by Bjorn Rudberg at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and by Yinglan Z. at the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers (FFfAW). The word prompts (star and calling) have been given by Six Sentence Stories by Recording Life Under The Radar and the WordPress Daily Prompts.

  8. So cute… and very creative… but I agree that it’s probably not very scientific

  9. Good one. I think the daughter is going to be a fiction writer one day as long as they don’t take her creativity from her.
