A Fir Tree - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 31

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to week thirty-one of Saturday Centus. STOP! If you didn't read the end SC's from last week, please take a moment to do so. Just work backwards until you find out where you left off. I feel really bad that the people at the end don't get read. Thanks! Now on to regular SC biz...In case you've forgotten... This is a themed writing meme. You can use UP to 100 words to tell your story. The prompt does not count for your 100 words AND it must be left intact in the body of your story. No illustrations are permitted. Your story can be fact or fiction, just keep it PG, please! You have the entire week to link your work to the meme and you can link more than one story if you like. Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog. I would suggest that since these are so short, if you can't think of a title just use your blog name as the title in the Linky. Try to visit each one because there are some amazing writers participating in this meme. Since the links are so short they are also a fun and quick read. Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. This week the prompt is: "The bin of tangled up holiday lights..." Link anytime between now and next Saturday morning.

Here is my SC text, the prompt is highlighted in orange:

He decided to not cut one of his fir trees. She, on the other hand, wanted to make it a happy Christmas for the children; even if it meant buying one. She took the worn out stroller with her to the square where trees were sold. It was the morning of Christmas Eve. Most shops were closed.* The tree-sellers were gone, but left a sign with the unsold trees: 'Take what you like!' She chose the smallest, and wheeled it home in the stroller.
The bin of tangled up holiday lights was a result of the children's helpfulness. One more, but very minor problem to solve.

*In Sweden, you open your presents on Christmas Eve and go to church very early on Christmas Day.
Wordcount according to WordCalc: 100
