For this year’s Advent Drabbles, we’d like to ask people to write a short story about Christmas in a particular year in CS-land. It can (and indeed may) be about any character or characters.

If you would like to take part, please PM yours truly, and let me know:

a - whether you’ve got any preference for a particular time period – Tyrol era, British Isles era, Swiss era, pre-school era/post-school era.
b - if you are prepared to do more than one, and, if so, how many.
c - if there is a particular week/time that would be difficult for you to post your piece, so that you aren't asked to post on a day when you need to be doing something else.

It shouldn’t be a problem if more than one person ends up writing about any particular year, as everyone will have their own ideas and preference as to characters, but ideally we’d like to make sure that there’s at least one story per CS year/day of Advent.

In line with last year, the idea is to post the stories anonymously, as "Round Robin", and then have a 'reveal' in the New Year. If you haven't initially volunteered but are later struck by inspiration :D , please just ask for Round Robin's password. The list of which Christmas has been allocated to which day of Advent will be posted later on.

So please get thinking, and PM me by November 22nd if you'd like to join in.

:santa: :santa: :santa:
