Holiday Gone

by Ari Collins

He stopped celebrating Halloween after his sister’s seizure on October 31st. His own birthday disappeared when his best friend overdosed. His parents’ car crashed on a regular Tuesday, but there went Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and Thanksgiving.

Nine months after he married Samantha, he celebrated a new birthday. That winter, he had Christmas again.
