Little Louis Lumpton is excited about all the presents he’ll receive on Christmas…but he’s also dreading the arrival of his Aunt Laura, who gives him nothing but socks as a gift. However, one Christmas Eve, he receives a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Socks, who attempts to teach him that getting socks for Christmas isn’t that bad.
A short, 700 word story that should amuse kids, adults and anyone who’s ever hated getting socks for Christmas.
This story was my entry into Amazon’s recent “New Christmas Carol” competition. It didn’t win (congratulations to Mike Doodson), but I still would like to share it with you. The story will be FREE from today to Wednesday, but will cost £0.99/$1.33 afterwards.
