Holiday Fest

Hello everyone!  Hope your Halloween was wonderful.  I am not sure I should do this as participation has been low in all the fest this year; but I opened a 2018 Holiday fest if you'd life to write a holiday story and add it. 

 Holiday Fic Fest. Write whatever you want as long as it includes a holiday/winter theme.  Don't forget to add it into the Holiday tag.
