BlogFestivus – Day 4 – ‘Christmas Planet’

Day 4 is upon us, and our challenge is to write a 200-word story Happy BlogFestivus 2013about the Spirit of Christmas Future. Our Hostess is Blogdromedy, and you can hop over to her blog to check out the rules if you’d like to participate. I’d like to give special thanks to my great friend photographer/graphic artist Terry Valley for his artwork that inspired my take on today’s prompt. And, once again, you’ll find a list below my story that will link you to the other talented writers who are taking part in BlogFestivus this year.

TERRY'S GREEN PLANET 2 -CROPPED TOP

CHRISTMAS PLANET

“Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. KTZY-TV is here at the 2025 Christmas Market Preview to interview The Spirit of Christmas Future and learn what’s in store this coming holiday season. Future is currently standing atop one of the newest creations this year — the Self-Lighting Christmas Tree. Christmas Future, can you hear me all right?”

“I can hear you fine, Tom. And as you explained, I am atop one of the smartest Christmas decorating ideas to come out in centuries. These purple and red trees come with self-infused lighting that glows gently from within.”

“I see. And is that Santa who’s being hoisted up to the top where you are?”

“Yes, we wanted him on hand when we present the video feed of Christmas Planet.   Here’s the video now.”

“That’s spectacular!”

“Yes, NASA recently discovered this planet and developed it specifically for the celebration of Christmas. Those amazing red light displays are part of the planet’s atmosphere.”

“And any family from earth can travel by spaceship to Christmas Planet to celebrate the holidays?”

“Yes. About the same price as Disney World — which has now been demoted to Christmas Past, of course.”

“We’re out of time, but thank you, Christmas Future, for this thrilling report. Well, folks, there you have it. Contact NASA at the number on your screen for more information.”
