Squirrel Wraps Up Christmas

Susanna Hill is hosting her 8th annual Holiday Story contest ! The Contest :   Write a  children’s holiday story  (children here defined as age 12 and under) about  A Holiday Hero !  Your hero’s act of heroism can be on a grand scale or a small one – from saving Christmas to leaving a fresh-baked loaf of Challah bread for a homeless person to something like Gift Of The Magi where two people give up the thing most important to them to be sure someone they love has a good holiday.  Your hero can be obvious or unlikely.  Your story may be poetry or prose, silly or serious or sweet, religious or not, based on Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever you celebrate, but is  not to exceed 250 words.
