The Twelve Days of Christmas Writing Prompts - Day 5

Children get all wild and bouncy when they are on a sugar rush; how about you?

☞ Write a humorous story about a drunken Santa or Santa on a sugar rush.

☞ Suggestions of what you can use in your story:

– Santa getting stopped by a police officer for not wearing a seatbelt in the sleigh.

– Santa getting a ticket because he didn’t park the sleigh right due to being tipsy/on a sugar rush.

– Santa not being able to remember the names of his reindeer, which leads to hem refusing to fly.

– Santa getting presents delivered to the wrong place. How does he fix that when he sobers up/comes down from the sugar high?

– Santa getting in trouble with Mrs. Clause because of his sugar addiction on returning home drunk. You can write this one from Mrs. Clause’s perspective.

☞ Questions to help you write:

– What other funny/ridiculous situation can Santa get himself into while tipsy/drunk/on a sugar rush?

– How and why did Santa get drunk or on a sugar high? Did he mean to do it (if so, why) or was it accidental (if so, how)?

– Did he treat himself to a bottle of fine wine for a job well done after delivering millions of presents?

– Is he a habitual drinker?

– Did he have one too many cookies?

– Or is he addicted to sugar canes?
