The Ornaments Offseason
Off The Tree Adventures
“Man this thing dried out fast this year” groaned Red. “ why do these peeps insist on getting the short needle tree? For five weeks now this thing has been rubbing my buns raw”. “Soon enough we will begin offseason debriefing and then we can do some stretching” Orange chimed in. “I am excited to get out of this one more than any other because it is really uncomfortable.”
There was a buzz around the tree as the ornaments all began their transition from freeze dried to the early phase of off season settings. Every year, after a full Christmas display of 7 weeks, the ornaments begin the annual off the tree adventure escapes.
For as long as ornaments have been put on a tree for Christmas, the ornaments have spent the offseason experiencing life in different ways. The experiences they have are embodied in their spirit and are shared with all those who gaze at them when they hang from the tree. The ornaments have no prejudices; they wish their power to anyone.
Orange and Red had been sharing more this year more than any other year because they had been placed near each for the first time in a long time. They had a lot more in common that either one of them thought. They were making some plans for the off season together, in hopes of being able to get to some of the known destinations set out for them by the Ornament Committee.
