Friday 55 Flash Fiction #6 Christmas Cheer

Christmas Cheer



“I thought I’d make mince pies and Christmas cake” said Mother



“You know I don’t like all that stuff” Father complained “It’s stodgy and I need to lose weight."






"I’ll have fruit instead.”




“Don’t be such an old misery, it’s traditional at this time of year ,





Anyway, you’re Father Christmas, you’re supposed to enjoy it.”

Jo Beaufoix said...

Akela you are so good at these. And Santa needs a little bit of padding to keep him warm and give him a soft landing when he comes down that chimney. :D

smarmoofus said...

Aww, that was sweet! I did not expect the Santa ending!

Ooooh... I have my headphones on. Great music! I'm starting to get into the spirit, I think. I think my Christmas spirit is due to you! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee! I will wrap all these gifts I've been collecting the last few weeks today. *keeps your page open to keep the feeling going*

Mother of Invention said...

I love Christmas cakes and cookies but all year round! Fruit just doesn't cut it for me! My worst time is now since I'm diabetic...I still have treats and then have to take a lot more insulin!

Thanks for your visits! I still have no new computer so am on much less.

Have the Merriest Christmas ever!

Akelamalu said...

Oh it's a shame you have to watch the cookie intake MOI, but as long as you manage some!

I hope Santa brings you a new computer.

Merry Christmas to you to. :)
