I ho-ho-hope you enjoy this short Yuletide story in the run-up to the big day. This story was originally written for Christmas last year, but in true festive fashion I feel it only appropriate to make it my recurring stalwart of the season. May it bring warmth and joy to new and old readers alike!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
