Sunny never could understand why Jenny hated Christmas so much. Sunny was always at his highest during this most wonderful time of year.

"Jenny, you're always complaining about Christmas. Why can't you just sit back, relax, and enjoy the season?"

"It's hard to sit back and relax when I've got to worry about all these presents! You just try keeping the kids from getting into them!"

"You worry too much. Why don't you take a moment to look at all of your lovely decorations?"

"Don't even mention the decorations! Have you any idea how hard it is to get everything looking just right? And then careless people and animals come along and have to play with them and mess them all up. Oh why must I bear the burden of decorations?!"

"But everything always looks so beautiful in the end. You know that. You're always admired for the way you display your ornaments. Who else but you could make them look so good?"

"Well, I suppose you have a point. But Christmas is such a stressful time for me! You have no idea what I go through! Dealing with kids and decorations and pets and presents and parties. You don't have to deal with those things. You're above all that. You don't have to do anything but be yourself! It's not fair! You always get to be the star!"

"And you think my job is easy? Sitting up here all day listening to you complain? Ugh! Christmas trees are so selfish!"

Christmas trees are selfish. *raises his eyebrow*

HA! This is cute. :) I wonder if it would be too much of a giveaway if you had named the star "Starr"
