Here’s some artwork I did leading up to Christmas!
This is a spoof news article based on the one about the family that found a live owl in their Christmas tree.
Family finds Ghost in their Dawning Tree
A City family was surprised last week to find an unexpected Dawning gift in their tree.
Gera Hurst and her two children, Freda and James, were eating dinner last Thursday when Freda, 10, made the discovery.
As Freda cleared the table in another room, Hurst heard her exclaim, “Traveler’s Light!”
“She enters the room very dramatically and goes, “‘Mama, that ornament frightened me!’ Then she burst into tears.”
Hurst explained that she’s a big fan of Ghosts. She had about a dozen Ghost ornaments on her Dawning tree. That’s why Hurst thought Freda had just seen an ornament. As she took a closer look at the tree, Hurst saw the ‘ornament’ blink his eye.
“And I’m going, ‘Oh, that’s a real Ghost,'” Hurst remembered as Freda ran into another room crying.
If that wasn’t strange enough, the Ghost had been in the family tree for more than a week. Hurst’s husband, Rand, told the news they had bought their tree two days after the Festival of the Lost.
“It was about to snow, you see,” said the Ghost, who called himself Dusk. “I was hanging out in the tree lot, looking for my Guardian, when this family picks the tree I was hiding in. I figured this was a great way to get out of the cold for a while, so I just kept quiet and hidden.”
“But didn’t you spy on the family?” our reporter asked.
“A little,” Dusk admitted. “But I stayed in the tree, and they seem like a nice family. I didn’t mean to frighten the little girl.”
That was all we managed to get out of the Ghost before Gera Hurst chased him out of her house with a broom.
