Ready for the New Year?

“No, don’t drop it… that’s not how it’s done… what are you doing?”

“Cool it Santa. If you keep screaming like that, the kids will forget your charm and be too scared to show up for next Christmas.”

“There won’t be a next Christmas if the New Year decor isn’t up in time.”

“Relax, we’ve got 2 hours till the shoppers arrive. We’ll do it… Just let’s increase the temperature, it’s still freezing like the North Pole.”


The photo prompt has been given by Dale Rogerson at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Charm) has been given by Denise Farley at the Girlie on the Edge. Happy New Year to all! 🙂
