An Advent Tradition – by Hugh W. Roberts
Not only have the new family in your area won the Christmas lights competition, but they’ve become known as the kindest and friendliest people in your district.
Next time you’re out walking, don’t look through their dining room window and watch them carrying out the tradition of raising a glass or two of red wine.
What you don’t realise is that the dark red liquid is that of one of your neighbours.
Unless you’re a vampire, you won’t know about this Advent tradition that has been going for over 666 years.
I’m dreaming of a red Christmas. Are you?
