Drabble Dare # 11 : "December" Theme

The month means different things to different people. Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer in the Southern. Countdown to Christmas; conspicuous consumerism and family fun-times. The last month of the year; looking back and leaping forward. Winter wonderland. The prime of life. Holidays.

In December, we at the Burrow will be hosting an interactive feature to celebrate the month. Modifying the concept of the Advent Calendar, we will count down to the New Year by revealing a drabble a day, every day during the month of December.

And you can be a part of it too.

All you have to do is to write a drabble in exactly 100 words based on any (or all) of these photographs, and mail it to us at 'theburrow360 at gmail dot com' on or before November 26, 2010. The winning entries for each of the images will be featured in the December feature.

To summarise -
- Write a drabble (a story in exactly 100 words) inspired by any (or all) of the photographs above
- Check that the drabble contains exactly 100 words - word count tool here
- Choose a name for the photograph, if you wish
- Mail the drabble to 'theburrow360 at gmail dot com', mention your pen name (if any), the name you would like to call the image (if different from the descriptive name we have given), and any other information you may want to provide us BY MIDNIGHT NOVEMBER 26, 2010
- Pick the next image to write a drabble to and start the process again

Happy Drabbling!
