A unique perspective on the topic and an interesting tale. Poor Everett. (Did you know the city of Everett, Washington, has a pulp paper mill? Maybe Everett could go there & be recycled.)

(I think you meant to use the word "referred" vs "revered".)

Very cute! Loved your widow Minnie-- just the name was fun. Your reference to 'little clinic on the prairie' was a good chuckle. Actually, there were many good lines like that one.

A very different take on the topic and right in time for our season.

How cleverly done! I didn't catch on at all until midway through the piece, then I just felt so sorry for Everett. I think you could do more with the piece about sacrificing for others' joy perhaps...? Good job and very imaginative!!

I didn't catch on until near the end, but a cute story for the season. Makes me glad my tree is artificial!
I enjoyed this very much. Never thought about a Christmas tree being used to tell a story but I loved it. So appropriate for thit time of year. Thank you. God bless and have a Merry Christmas.
