Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task of the challenge is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

“On my mark. 3…, 2…, 1…, Hoorah!”
|“Report. Ježíšek, Christkind, Père Noël, Father Christmas, Joulupukk, Дед Мороз, Olentzero, Papá Noél, Santa Haraboji, you know the routine? The dates?”
“Excellent. Now, remember what the Old Man said. This time around, be seen. Especially the Claus clones there, you hear me?”
“Don’t let the beards conceal your skin. I don’t know who came up with the harebrained idea that Santa is white, but it didn’t make the Old Man happy. Now go and show them.”
This silly little tale is my effort to wish you all happy holidays. I was so embarrassingly late last week with replying to, and reciprocating my reviewers that I considered to skip this week, but then Santa whispered in my ears. I hope I’ll be able to read and comment on more stories than last week. In case I can’t make it in the next few weeks (we all are busy, and work is insane), have a great time, whatever you celebrate.
