A Bit of Bizarro in Your Eggnog, Mister?, or, The Worst Christmas Ever, a Lagniappe — Plus a Poetic Extra

To all, a stellar Holiday Season!   But for those perhaps a bit melancholy, for Christmas can sometimes bring that feeling too, press here for a story for cheering up — for no matter how bad things might seem now, somewhere, at some time, things always could be worse.  “The Worst Christmas Ever” was originally published in DARK JESTERS (Novello Publishers, 2006), with the version here appearing in FLASHES IN THE DARK on Christmas Day, December 25 2008.  It has never been posted on this blog before, but did get a mention earlier this year (February 2 and January 31) as having been accepted as a reprint for a charity anthology, but which to my knowledge has not been published.

Then for those with more poetic, um, tastes (depending, to be sure, on one’s personal dining habits), herewith a short verse on a more upbeat note, written just yesterday, Christmas Eve.  Read and enjoy!


she’s so excited
vampire Santa left a gift —
stocking filled with blood

And to all, my best for a truly happy Christmas and year to come!
