I wrote this story last year as a kind of a first for me. My dad has written a Christmas story every year since I can remember, and it’s always something I look forward to.
I started doing the same thing last year, and it is called Return to the Scene. It’s kind of a Christmas ghost story, and I think those are some of the best kinds (two of my favourites are Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Frederick Forsyth’s The Shepherd).
