Santa's Cap - Christmas creative story writing contestWith the merry Christmas season fast approaching, what better way to celebrate than with a contest! Write a creative, happy short story focused on Santa's cap, maybe with a little mystery, a bit of wit, a touch of romance...nothing sad, though, as Santa is a jolly fellow! All members, including editors, can submit entries for this contest.
What you have to do: Submit your story in English in Discussion Forums >> General >> Festivals. Only one entry per member is allowed. Limit your story to 500 words (minimum 350 words.)

You can use conversations/dialogues in the text and incorporate other aspects of Christmas as well. However, do not put anything inappropriate or against any community/religion. No slang or SMS words, please. You may, if you wish, give only one internal link to any page of ISC.
