What's that smell? It must be CHRISTMAS!

That's right, kids! It's almost X-mas, and it's a time for giving, eating, sleeping, and freezing! What would you like for Christmas? No idea what you want? Tell us what you'll give that special someone for X-Mas! Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year (well not really, it is gonna be 2012 ._. fuck)!

How is it spam? Spam is annoying, this isn't. Let people put their answers here! I can't put it on other sections cause it doesn't go with this! Cmon man... IT'S CHRISTMAS!

No, spam can also be off topic threads.

Oh well, the literature section doesn't get much traffic anyhow. (It's been getting more recently, but...)


As for the question, I have no idea what to give my boyfriend yet, but I'm giving my best friend this adorable thing.

This is a Christmas thread in a Literature forum, so the least anyone could do is at least post literature having to do with Christmas.

Like, share a Christmas story for example.

Jared sighed as he looked out the window of his three story suburban home's attic. Christmas again, and while he was sure to get many wonderful and expensive gifts from his parents and neighbors, that wasn't what he really wanted.

Jared had never spoken up enough at school for anyone to really count him as a friend. He drifted from table to table at lunchtime, never really getting into the conversation the way the other kids did. Sports, playtime at recess, and the increasingly loud and hyperactive television shows - they had never really appealed to him.

What Jared did with most of his spare time was help out at the animal shelter down the street. The manager, Mrs. Simmons, needed more help in the summer than the winter though, and had told Jared she wouldn't need him at the station at all this week or the next.

When Jared finally made his way downstairs, he saw his parents standing there grinning with Mrs. Simmons.

"Mrs. Simmons?" was all Jared managed to say before a furry mass collided with him from the right.

"Sorry to keep you away from the clinic this week Jared, but I was taking care of this little fella. He was hit by a bus and nearly lost his left foreleg before he recovered. As soon as I saw him, I knew you two would get along. He's a golden retriever, Iknow they're your favorite."

Jared looked from his parents, to Mrs. Simmons, to his new friend whose tag read "Tank". Perhaps this Christmas was going to be a little different after all.

There, a heartwarming, generic Christmas story, written in 300 seconds. You're welcome.

Innocence Abandoned, you are truly a great Christmas story teller. Now all we need is a Christmas song from you, and you'll be better than a Santa in a mall!

A Christmas song? Hell naw, you're not getting a free song outta me. Besides, I only compose in the summer when I have access to an electric piano
Listen to some dubstep or whatever them kids are into nowadays

Did someone say Christmas themed dubstep?

Edit: Good god, now that I've actually listened to that link, I've realized what a horrible thing I've given to this thread. That dubstep...

It's a little early for me to write a Christmas episode for Feathers... After all, I just started the series.
It'd be too much.

But I do love it. The snow of Winter's warming chill in my fingers. Christmas is that day where even if you're a jerk, people still party with you on a day of such religious meanings. It's so heartwarming! Christmas is still second to my Halloween though...

Now count every 17 syllables, y'all. And Merry Christmas.
