Klaine Advent Drabble Challenge, Day 7: Grace
Christmas has always been Kurt’s favorite holiday.
However, since his mother had passed away, Christmas had also become Kurt’s most dreaded holiday.
There are just too many memories kindling up again during that time of the year. Just the faint smell of fir branches that rises up his nose whenever he sits down in the living room, with their advent wreath taking up almost all the space on their small coffee table. Or when he turns on the radio in the mornings and the first thing he hears is Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’.
And then, of course, it’s the preparations he, himself, has to make before the holidays. Baking Christmas cookies, wrapping gifts, looking up recipes for the perfect Christmas goose (no matter how high the praise is he receives, he’s never satisfied with himself), and then, there’s one thing that strikes him especially hard.
The Christmas tree.
