Christmas Short Story – Walmart I Love You

I read several online Christmas stories before settling on this one — the best of the bunch.  It was posted by Kathleen A. Ryan over at the Women of Mystery blog.  It’s called Walmart I Love You.  Here’s an excerpt:

The smell of fresh-cut Christmas trees outside Walmart made me wish for a real one instead of the fake one we have at home. The Walmart greeter looked just like Santa Claus. I worried that Santa wouldn’t leave any presents if our tree wasn’t up in time.

We walked straight to the beef jerky aisle where Dad grabbed some Cheez Whiz, Slim Jims, and a box of Ritz Crackers.

“Pick out some crap in a can,” he barked.
