STORY IDEA #194: The Santa Murder Mystery

#PROJECT365

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#194: The Santa Murder Mystery

You wake up Boxing Day morning and you turn on the TV.

Breaking news. A body has been found. A big white beard in red Santa clothes, face down in the snow, bled out from the giant hole in his neck.

You'd expect that it was just mall-Santa or some uncle playing for his kids or whatever but the weird thing is this guy doesn't have any ID, isn't recognised as any American citizen, and has hooves for feet.

Supernatural murder mystery away!
