This is something I keep asking myself when I write my story. Everyone always says its a time of giving and being with the ones you love but what if you were describing it to someone who has never had christmas and never had anyone they loved to spend it with? What if that person never got anything for Christmas because they were abused and never had a family? In my story, there is a boy twin and girl twin who are like this. They were abused by their family and everyone around them had no idea. Not a lot of people in their family liked them because who would want to have differently-gendered twins as children? The only holiday they ever had was Thanksgiving and they were punished for every manner they missed or mistake they made. I want to grasp the idea of their first Christmas with a family friend that adopts them later on after their parents have died. Does anyone have any ideas? I need to spark up some new chapter ideas to develop my plot. I know, I know... its better to do it on my own but I've tried and haven't really had much success... that's why I'm asking for some opinions. I want it to be non-religious since I don't like including religion in my stories. My friends read them and they have varying religions and different ways of celebrating the holidays.
