Prompt for December 25, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

She could feel the magic in the air as it entered every cell of her body, filling her with joy and happiness. The Christmas tree was brightly lit and – she took a deep breath – smelled of the forest that she loved so much. The presents lay under the tree like a carpet of paper, with no two presents using the same paper. She had started the fireplace when she got up ensuring that when everyon else woke up it would be gently crackling in the corner of the room giving off its Christmas warmth. Everything was perfect. And then Theresa opened her mouth and started talking. So much for perfect.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
