A Calisbury Christmas

Marisa Porter is the author of “A Calisbury Christmas.” Look for this story of hope and compassion Christmas of 2020.


But soon he came upon the place where the road went three ways, and there was an old and wooden sign that said, “Calisbury.”

At first, Elijah did not believe his eyes. Calisbury? Was this the town… he had come out to see?

But…but it was dark!

There were no candles set in the windowsills, no trees with candles showing through the windows, no candles at all. There were no lanterns tied with mistletoe along the main street, no pines festively and lovingly adorned with holly and lights and oranges. Aside from the odd lantern and the lights from one or two houses with families that had not yet gone to bed, it was dark.”
