    Christmas On Air

    “You are listening to WVCS Radio on December 24, I’m Mike O you’re host to take you into Christmas. We’re here all night and into the next day folks. So let’s settle in with a little holiday tune about a snowman.” Mike flipped the switch, the music was on, and he was off. His own words echoed through his head as the tears fell. It was the first time he would not be home for Christmas, but his parents understood. Mike was a college student eager to become the next Will Lindsay, and part of that meant paying your dues. This year he drew the short straw to man the…

    An Actors Christmas

    He was alone for Christmas, he had to realize that. It was a first, it had almost happened before, but at the last moment something changed, and he found himself home for Christmas. This year was going to be different, it was Christmas Eve, and home was a few states away. Emil Clement was in New York City without any way to get out. His friend was supposed to fly him home via private plane, until sickness grounded him. There was no time to get a flight out, now this husband, father, and grandfather of three was stuck in New York. In some ways it was his own fault, accepting…

    On The Way To Westminster One Christmas

    Alec was nervous, as anyone should be, when being on the way to Westminster. Especially when you are headed there to be knighted by Her Majesty the Queen. The whole family was being permitted to go with him, and it was to be a grand day. It was also the first snow of the season, fitting for a December ceremony. This was definitely an early Christmas present for Alec. He remembered thinking that he had never thought of receiving a knighthood, not in his entire life. His wife Lucille believed in him, and of course Mom did. Mom had said he would do something special most of his life, and…

    Ollie Tollie Bear – A Christmas Story

    Our next Christmas story gift to you this year is Ollie Tollie Bear. Every child dreams of a toy for Christmas, this is the story from the other side. Ollie sat in the store, in shiny packaging. All of the others faced forward, watching and waiting. A Mommy and her little boy walked by. The boy ran to him, and picked him up. Ollie was excited about going with him, until the boy’s Mom said to put it down, and follow Daddy. Ollie was sad, until the boy was out of sight, and Mommy picked him up. She quickly bought him, placed him in their trunk, and went back to…

    Christmas Divinity – A Short Story Of Hope

    This is a special Christmas gift from us to you. It’s a story about Hope, and candy, but most of all Divinity. It’s our prayer it will warm your heart, and remind you of the season’s recipe for Hope. I grew up with Divinity. My Grandmother loved it at Christmas. It was the only time of year that I had it. So I wanted to include it in a Christmas story this year. June Murphy was a candy maker, a professional one. Her shop on the island of Lansbury, Maine was legendary. All through the year, she sold turtles, bon bons, and truffles, but at Christmas, only then, there was…

    Christmas Wi-Fi – A Christmas Short Story

    Our first Christmas gift of the season for you to unwrap is our whimsical story Christmas Wi-Fi. We hope you enjoy this tale of Santa and his very busy Elves. Many times, terms have double meanings, such as bowl. It can be a dish, or the act of rolling a ball towards wooden pins. It’s the same way at the North Pole, where the word WiFi means something besides wireless fidelity. Originally it was called Why and Find Out, but over a couple of hundred years it got shortened to WiFi. It’s the method by which Santa has the Elves to know what toys to make children. You see, Santa…

    Deer Thanksgiving – A Thanksgiving Mystery

    In our second Thanksgiving gift of the year, we offer a Thanksgiving Mystery. It’s our hope that Deer Thanksgiving warm your heart, and remind you that even an old iron deer can be a reason to be Thankful. The year she won it was 1942, off the back of a cereal box. Great Grandmother Henderson was so proud, they say, of her triumph. “Your Great Grandmother had sent in over two hundred jingles to that contest. She ate cereal every other meal for months, but she did it. Her grand prize, an iron deer.” I had asked Grandmother Tolbert a thousand times, so she answered automatically, even though I hadn’t…

    Cranky Cranberries A Thanksgiving Story

    I had never been an angry person, but I threw the can of cranberry sauce in the trash can very hard. I was cranky, and believe it or not, at that moment I blamed the cranberries. What’s worse is it was my company’s cranberry sauce. No I’m not crazy, I was just tired. Tired, and a long way from home. My name is Charlie, Charlie Morrell, and I’m the President of What Cranberries? Inc. It was my Grandfather’s company originally, and I got the idea of doing something different with it. I’ve had nightmares about that day since. My idea seemed good at the time, creating something different. A line…
