Advent Stories Day #24: Food Fight

Welcome to the Advent Story event I am having here on Eastern Sunset Reads this Christmas season.
Every family has their own personal Holiday traditions, and many of them include those advent calendars that have the little chocolates or toys behind each door as you count to Christmas Day. Well in my family we had a Advent Candle instead. Each night we would light the candle and as it burned that day away we would read a special Christmas story or poem. So I decided to bring that tradition to all of you.
Most of the books will be Children's books as I share this tradition with Munchkin for the first time, but I will also have some After Dark specials and maybe a few fiction, romance and young adult books too as time allows. I will also feature a favorite Christmas song each day. So please join me and share some of your favorite traditions, songs and stories this holiday season!

Synopsis: "When a young couple's first Christmas dinner doesn't go exactly as planned, trouble ensues. The first fight is always the most important!"

My Review: A very good reminder that came at just the right time for me. The wife in the story tries so hard to make this Christmas dinner perfect, just like the newly weds had with their own families, only the husband comments that it tastes different than his own mom made. A fight ensues, food flinging included. It was a comedic break from the stress of the holiday and made me remember that my hubby and I are trying to create our own family memories and traditions and we don't have to do what our families did before.
My Rating: This was a fun short read but with a great reminder and message. I loved it. I give it a rating of Four Paws.
