    A Christmas story for children - write one, win a prize!

    We're soon going to enjoy the festive cheer of Christmas. So how about writing a delightful story for children? Of course, it can be enjoyed by adults too! We are also going to allow you to write a good length story, so give it your best shot.

    What you have to do: Based on the picture below, write a creative Christmas story for children (the age group is not relevant). It should be something happy and fun. The object in the picture should be mentioned at least once and you can weave the story in a manner that includes it directly or indirectly. Put an appropriate title relevant to your story, though it need not mention the object in the picture. At the end of your story, please give a link to this announcement thread.

    Here's the picture for your Christmas story-
