And if you have trouble figuring out what you can do with this challenge, I highly recommend you watch this short film by Movie Poet's owner Chris Messineo. Not just a great film, but it might spur your imagination

I feel like I need to write a horror story about those damned elves on the shelf.

Talk about the bane of my existence throughout December.

Come on, why can't it be a zombie on the shelf? Lol.

I think I have the perfect way to depress people for the holidays. Although, I, sometimes, wonder if you guys get sick of me depressing you all the time...

What if it's a family of zombies with a zombie elf?

I'm thinking that my elf actually does move on its own and wreaks havoc throughout the house while everyone is sleeping.

Maybe a Needful Things kind of vibe where everyone starts to think everyone else is against them and they end up blowing their house up... You know... in the spirit of Christmas.

NO LIST! Geez, everything XMas related should be acceptable. Besides, some of us may have ideas already and don't want others to be mackin' on their thoughts. Let originality flow. No more parameters!

There. I said my piece. And am now at peace.

If you got a piece of coal in your stocking once, it's acceptable.

This challenge reminds me of the classic holiday short film, Treevenge!



That should inspire some peeps.
