Magical Christmas Blogfest Tale

Ellie would like you to write a Christmas related tale or poem (try to keep the tales under 700 words, though we won't tell you off if you go a little over). Your tale can be any genre and can be non-fiction if you want. It can be happy, sad, scary, or whatever you choose. But it must feature some element of Christmas    Christmas Tale Blogfest







I started writing this in 2004 and resurrected it for Ellie's fest.

  1. Wow. An adorable and perfect tale. It reminds me of the joy of Christmas and believing in Santa. My mum always put a satsuma in my stocking and I never caught her placing it at the end of my bed.

    Thank you for resurrecting this story and taking part in my blogfest.

  7. Thank you Suzanne, Ellie, MsHatch, Simon, Joanne and Wordscrafter. Christmas stockings were always one of the most magical parts of Christmas in my childhood, finding them on the end of the bed and it never occured to me to question where they went afterwards!

    I have inserted a picture of a satsuma for those who've never heard of one.
    :O)
