Summary:

Authors choices for all story titles.

As I do the features I try to spotlight holiday related stories during the year.  This has caused me to notice that we have a slew of Christmas stories, Valentines stories and even Halloween but little else.  

I would LOVE multiple stories that deal with holidays we don't have or have too few of already.  

Include but not limited to: 

Dia del los muertos (Same time period as Halloween but different "holiday" and on Nov 1 and 2)

Winter and SUmmer solstices and Wiccan/pagan touches

Kwanzaa

Boxing Day

Guy Fawkes day (hey, Spike and Giles are British!)

St. Patricks Day

Cinco de Mayo

Thanksgiving (mostly US since show is set in California but other national Thanksgivings okay too...maybe a travel story or something).

Passover

Hanukkah

http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/us/ has a list of US holidays that might help give you a nudge and holidays special to other countries/religions are great too if you can figure out a reason for them to be noted by our characters.

You get the drift......holiday stories can be fairly short but it would be lovely to have a body of stories that celebrate special days with our verse/characters.  Don't miss out on odd ones like Groundhogs day (think of the movie and how our guys might suffer a similar fate!)!

More than happy to have more of what we DO have also...Christmas, Valentines and so on.  



Summary: An exercise to relieve boredom on National Letter Writing Day turns into something a bit more.  *holiday challenge response including National Letter Writing Day which is December 7th as well as a strong hand in hand with Christmas*

Summary: A holiday challenge story in honor of National Cookie Day on December 4th and National Cookie Baking Day on December 18th.  The tale takes place post BTVS tv series story and after The Girl in Question but before WR&H goes BOOM on Angel.  Please ignore all you may know about the comics.  A simple story about a friend trying to help without actually looking like he is helping.  And cookies because, well, they are cookies *grin*

Summary: She's been gone 5 days, 14 hours, 17 minutes.  Everyone is still is reeling from Buffy's sacrifice and grieving in their own way. All heroes deserve to be remembered no matter how short or long a time has passed since their sacrifice at least that's what Dawn insists.
