Last Christmas by Matthew Drzymala

Title: Last Christmas

Series: The Bumpkinton Tales


Father Whitworth O'Grady is tired of the same old Christmas Eve ritual. A ritual that consists of watery vegetable soup and a game of cribbage with the ageing Father Stanton.
When Father Stanton catches a nasty cold and has to decline a generous invitation to a meal with the Summers-Day family, Father O'Grady feels no guilt in popping along without him.
With the prospect of snow, cake and a near-fatal penny, could this turn into Father O'Grady's most eventful Christmas Eve ever?
Last Christmas is a short story and a prelude to the Bumpkinton novella Bittersweet.
