Whenever inspiration strikes!!!

…a pinch of this & that

The night before Christmas

Posted by Sowmya:) on December 26, 2008

My entry for Klash this week.

Swati was miserable. Everyone was having a wonderful Christmas. But she was always battling to match her income with he expenses. She thought of the beautiful things she could never have. “Christmas spirit is crap! A huge tree, cakes, expensive gifts is what a Christmas makes.”  But she had her family of four to support. It was frustrating.

Suddenly she spotted her niece looking pensive. “Whats wrong sweetheart?”

“Have I been a good girl? Will Santa give me five chocolates?”

“Of course. But why five? Not satisfied with three?”

“Then what will you and I have Aunty?”

Swati felt very small compared to her four year old niece. Rohini had taught her about Christmas spirit on the night before Christmas.
