hmm... this is interesting :D but I am a bit tied :hmm: I don't write about events so writing about Christmas is a bit unnatural for me. But only working on blue... snow... well I could work with that :D

You don't have to write about christmas. Take the horse prompt for example. If that prompts you to write a poetic review of "Spirit, Stallion of the Cimmeron" then that's what it prompts you. Just because it's a Christmas contest doesn't mean the entries have to be Christmas related - that's why the prompts are there for inspiration.
