3words xmas 1/25

All 3words prompts this month will have a Christmas feel to them. πŸ™‚

Today’s 3words are: NATIVITY, SNOWMAN, WREATH.

And my story…

 

THE DOOR THAT CHRISTMAS FORGOT

 

There was no SNOWMAN laughing on the front lawn, no NATIVITY scene for passersby to marvel at, and certainly no heartwarming WREATH on the door to welcome strangers.

But there was a good reason for this: strangers weren’t welcome. They were strange, and should best keep to themselves, so far as Barry Sayer was concerned.

Barry’s house had developed something of a local reputation over the years. A mythology, almost. Nobody could recall ever seeing the front door open. Not for the postman, nor any brave Halloween revelers, and certainly not for carol singers.

See, Barry was an all-year humbug.
