Christmas Fair

“Will we get to see the light show at the fair?”

“Of course, dear”

“What about Santa? Will we meet him?

“Yes, but don’t expect presents until Christmas.”

“Does Santa give kids with matching masks, extra presents?”


The photo prompt has been given by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at the Friday Fictioneers and the word prompt (Fair) has been given by Denise Farley at the Girlie on the Edge. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

  11. Of course he will. What better way to ‘love your neighbour’ than protecting them by wearing a mask. So much said in so few words, excellent.
