The 2-line Halloween Horror Stories Challenge went fairly well, so now we're going to do The 2-line Christmas Stories Challenge. The Christmas stories are not horror stories. Think humorous, sentimental, or just memories of Christmas. I'll submit examples to get started.

Note: You can also include Thanksgiving, or other cultural holidays of your choice as well.

P.S. We gave some Reward Points to those that participated in the 2-line horror story challenge.

I like presents.
Especially when I'm getting them.

I don't know why my parents gave my brother presents.
They could have cut out the middleman and just gave them straight to me.

Don't try to trick me with squishy presents.
I know they're just socks.

Every kid knows the truth.
Christmas is just hide and seek with prizes.

Finding a present from Grandma was terrifying.
You know it's going to be something that if you wore it, you'd get beat-up.

Famous last words at Christmas.
Thanks for the lawn darts, dad.

When you find the long skinny box, you start chanting.
Please be a BB gun, Please be a BB gun.

The worst job to have in the southern hemisphere?

Dressing up like Santa in the middle of summer.


Christmas. 

The only time of year we allow small children to sit on strangers’ laps.


Dear Santa, I know I haven’t always believed.

But if you make one of my games go viral this Christmas, I’ll believe in you forever.

There's something wrong with Santa. 

He gives the kids with rich parents the best gifts and almost nothing to the poor kids.

~~

"These chocolates taste funny."

Hey kid, stop eating the reindeer poop.

Do you remember the good old days when you asked for a mouse?

And meant a small furry creature.

Breaking into someone's home and not getting shot.

Christmas is watching Grandma open the presents carefully so the paper can be used again.

That's not my style. *rip*

Christmas Eve traditions:

Watching Santa on the NORAD Santa Tracker.

Writing Santa a “Thank You” letter to put with the cookies and milk.

One last sweep of the house for hidden presents.

Watching your brother set his newest Santa trap next to the fireplace.

Reminding your parents that Amazon is awake all night, just in case Santa forgets to bring that thing you really wanted.

Pulling your stocking out of the trash where your brother just threw it.

Writing a secret note to Santa telling him how bad your brother has been.

Trying your hardest to stay awake so you can see Santa.

Christmas trees have two styles of decorations when you have little kids.

Either all the decorations are on the top half so the kids can’t reach them or they’re on the bottom because that’s how far the kids can reach to hang them

We had 2 trees growing up.

One tree had all the fancy store-bought ornaments, the other was the ones we'd made as crafts.
