Prompt #6

According to some people (I won’t name names), 2012 is the year that the world is going to end. But there are still 352 days left, so let’s get some writing done!


In 300 words (or under), write about a character with a tradition. This can be a ritual that involves superstitions, something surrounding religion, or any other kind of thing you can think of! Maybe this character sleeps in the kitchen, only uses blue candles, or reads the bible backwards before bed. Convince us of why this character holds onto this tradition, and be specific about the kinds of things that are (or are not!) a part of it.
