In the War on Christmas, it must be understood that Christmas has ever been the aggressor, overruning Thanksgiving and pressing further and further against Halloween, driving Pumpkin spice season back into summer. It is time for a counteroffensive.

So, this week, I want you to pick out one of the 395(!) Hallmark Christmas Movies (Link is to IMDB), and write a story that takes the summary of that movie and adds some horror elements. You may change names of you want, you may set your story at any time of the year. If you state your chosen story when you sign up nobody else can use that one. Otherwise, put it in your post as you would a flash rule. I can assign you one but honestly you'll get the same kind of result using your own random number generator. 

1000 words base. Since we've had a couple recent weeks with fewer than three judges this is a crit bounty week, you can get 100 extra words for each crit posted on a story.in a week you didn't judge, up to 5 stories/500 words. You may post the crits any time up to when you post the story.

Usual rules and exclusions apply, no screeds, poetry, erotica, fanfic.
