Five Sentence Fiction- Festival

Word prompt- Festival

Part of her sons school homework had been to research the definition of the word ‘ festival’.

Though there were numerous dictionary meanings, her son had decided that festival was best defined as ‘ gaiety, revelry, merrymaking’.

What she loved most about this research project was the affect it had had on her 10-year-old.

He had insisted that each morning , breakfast would become a festival, a time for ‘merrymaking’.

Balloons decorated the dining room, streamers had been strung from window to window, music played, and most importantly, laughter and chatter filled the air as the family ate their cereal and toast.

    A morning’s gala event!
    Nice one – even it is only cereal and toast.
