Christmas Dinner! (Open to all Invitees!)
Backdated to December 25 at 5:30 pm
They'd spent all day preparing for Christmas dinner. The cottage itself was decorated inside and out. A fire crackled and roared merrily in the hearth. A lovely silver and blue tree quietly twinkled in the corner closest to the door. A larger-than-usual table took up most of the great room, and it was set to perfection with bright and creamy china, sparkling goblets, silverware that gleamed, poinsettias and pinecones and ham and mashed potatoes, tarts of every kind, salad, green bean casserole -- and oh, every holiday food imaginable! The wine selection was top-notch (after all, Beauty was French!), and the hostesses themselves were grinning ear to ear with excitement.
Under the tree, tiny presents waited - hostess gifts designed to surprise and delight!
At 5:30, Beauty went to the door and stood, bouncing on her toes, and waiting for the very first knock.
