Christmas Gatherings

I always love hanging out with family during Christmas. When I was a kid, there was always something magical about going to my

Christmas break

grandparents’ at Christmas…staying up late in order to catch Santa Claus at my dad’s parents’, squishing into my mom’s parents’ living room to hear the Christmas story before opening presents, and my grandma’s hundreds of nutcrackers staring at me from every corner… 😛

This year, Justin and I get to renew the tradition with Toby, the first grandbaby on both sides. He’s a bit young to really get the idea of Christmas, but I know he’ll just have fun being around so many people, getting to play with aunts and uncles…I’m sure he’ll be a very spoiled little boy by the time the festivities are over. 🙂

Now the big question is, will my mom’s snowmen freak him out as much as my grandma’s nutcrackers freaked me out? 😉

Have a merry Christmas, everyone!


About H. A. Titus

H. A. Titus is usually found with her nose in a book or spinning story-worlds in her head. Her love affair with fantasy began at age twelve, when her dad handed her The Lord of the Rings after listening to it on tape during a family vacation. Her stories have been published in Digital Dragon Magazine, Residential Aliens Magazine, and four anthologies: Alternative Witness; Avenir Eclectia Volume 1; The Tanist's Wife and Other Stories; and Different Dragons Volume II. In December 2013, her short story "Dragon Dance" won Honorable Mention in a Writers of the Future contest. She lives on the shores of Lake Superior with her meteorologist husband and young son, who do their best to ensure she occasionally emerges into the real world. When she's not writing, she can be found rock-climbing, skiing, or hanging out at her online home, hatitus.wordpress.com.
