Flash Fiction Challenge

I decided to enter a 99 word Flash Fiction Challenge at the Carrot Ranch Literary Community just for fun!

This is the November First challenge:  Write a story about a festival of lights.  Here is my go at it:

Every December the family went to the huge light display in Winterhaven.  Mom complained about the crowds, the kids complained about the cold and Dad complained about the cost.  But it was a family tradition.  This year Mom said she just couldn’t face it and Dad didn’t want to pay so they didn’t go.

On Christmas Eve, once it got dark, Mom said, “Everyone get your coats on, we have a hole in our holiday that needs to be filled”. They walked through their still, silent neighborhood, savoring all the small light displays, happy to continue their family tradition.
