Christmas of the Dead
Overview
Every family has unique traditions. The Addams Family, for one, likes to celebrate with all their relatives…including the ones in the family cemetery. One can only imagine what happens when an outsider comes to spend Christmas with such a family. Will he/she have to help decorate with ‘special’ decorations? What will the Christmas dinner surprise be? In this 3-day Christmas creative writing and publishing workshop, students decide whether to make this visit a lively experience or a deathly ordeal.
