55 Flash Fiction Friday - Christmas Eve Discovery

This meme is hosted by Mr. Knowitall.

Today's story is true. When we were younger my brother and I used to cuddle up in one bed in anticipation of Christmas Morning. We were always very excited and could hardly sleep.  Then one year as we lay there we heard my mom watching her soaps, which wasn't unusual. What was unusual was the sounds of gifts being wrapped. 

Christmas Eve Discovery

Cuddled in bed, too excited to sleep, a brother and sister lay awake talking about what they expect to find Christmas morning. Then they hear the TV come on with Mom’s favorite soap opera, and the sounds of gifts being wrapped. But all the gifts from Mom and Dad are already under the tree!

    Maybe there really is a Santa eh?
    Your Mom watched soaps at night?
    Loved your Yuletide 55
    Thanks for playing, have a Kick Ass Week-End

    1. Yes, she would tape them during the day when she was at work and watch them at night after we went to bed. I remember many a night falling asleep to the sounds of the opening song to The Young & The Restless.

  2. Maybe Santy Claus digs them soaps! He and Mom might have been sitting there having a cup of egg nog while watching them.

    1. Cara I'm pretty sure that was similar to the answer we got the next morning.
