Characters and Holidays

21 Dec

With the holidays in just a few short days, have you ever thought about how your characters would celebrate?

What kind of gifts would they give? What kind of gifts would they like to receive? If Christmas isn’t a holiday in your story’s setting, what kind of holidays do they celebrate?

Better yet, how would your character react to the holidays if he/she/they suddenly found themselves in our world? What would they think of a Christmas tree, of a menorah?

Perhaps your stories don’t have room for any holidays in the plot, but wondering how your characters celebrate (or don’t) can be an extra exercise in developing their personalities.

    This is actually something I’ve thought about a lot. I’d love to release a collection of holiday short stories featuring various characters in the Shifters & Mages series. It would be cool to see how they handled various situations and traditions.
