Everyday Drabbles #629: How the Magic Works

Leave a comment

This is how the magic works: For one night a year, he is immortal and all-powerful. In those brief but infinite hours, he races through the sky, spreading goodwill across the world.
When the last present is delivered and the final stocking is filled, he sits and watches the sunrise over the ocean. As the sky lightens, he gradually forgets. He forgets where he left his sleigh (the reindeer look after themselves.) He forgets the many places he visited. And finally, he forgets himself.
The mission will return next Christmas. But until then, that is the price of the magic.

Everyday Drabbles #628: Father Christmas

Leave a comment

The morning sun was already peeking over the forest as he climbed the snowy hill. He was running late. He pulled the fur-trimmed red robe tight around his wizened frame and doubled his efforts.
The workshop was old, carved from black stone and blue glacial ice. No reindeer pranced or helpers scurried about. There was no sleigh.
The songs and the stories, the presents and cookies were not the magic. They were embellishments.
A circle of light stood in the center of the cavernous structure. He sat down in the center and began the song that would renew the world.

Everyday Drabbles #627: Festival of Light

Leave a comment

It was the longest night of the year, and the village gathered to celebrate. The visiting anthropologist, who came from a small, distant planet called ‘Earth’ couldn’t help but think of Christmas.
Lights were hung on the big tree in the center of the lake, and families set little vessels with lit candles on the water.
“Does this ritual bring back the sun or appease the dead?” he asked his host sponsor.
Xe blinked and tried to form a satisfying answer. The human came from an advanced civilization, but he was weirdly obsessed with superstition.
“It looks pretty?” Xe ventured.
