“So what did you do at Christmas?” Stacey asked.
“Mum would make us scrambled eggs with lots of butter and toasted homemade bread. Then we would open presents. One of us would hand them all out, and then we’d open them one at a time going round the room. In the evening we’d have dinner with the rest of the family, and of course, open more presents.” Hannah replied.
“But I’m missing it this year since I’ve been kicked out for being lesbian.” Stacey hugged Hannah.
“We’ll just have to start our own traditions then.” Stacey told her.
This was written with the prompt to write a story that includes family traditions provided by the Carrot Ranch December 3 Flash Fiction Challenge.
