Most of you have already read this story ago last year. Well, I plan to make this a tradition to post this every year. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy my story of how the Incredibles celebrate Christmas (in 12 days).

Rating: G (PG for a later chapter)
Disclamer: I do not own the Incredibles. The Incredibles belong solely to Brad Bird & Pixar/Disney. I own this story and everything written in it. I do have my own original characters, which belong to me. I wrote this story because I am an obsessed Incredibles fan and writing fanfics is a great way of expressing what you love. I also wrote this for my own pleasurable entertainment. I am willing to let any person use my ideas if they ask for my permission and credit me. In addition, any people at Pixar or owners of the Incredibles are encouraged to use any or all of my ideas, characters, etc in future Incredibles Adventures. Make sure to ask, contact, and credit me first.
Chapter 1: The First Day Of Christmas
“Oh come on!” complained Dash.
It was early morning and Dash was wide awake. He was staring at the calendar in the kitchen. It was the 14th of December. Suddenly, his sister came downstairs. She was groggy and in her pajamas.
“Thanks a lot twerp.” said Violet, a little drowsily. “I am supposed to sleep on my vacation.”
Before the two siblings could argue, Helen entered. “What is going on here? It’s seven o’clock.”
“Dash woke me up!” explained Vi, pointing at her little brother. Both stared at Dash.
“But mom, it’s the forteenth of December! Can’t you see that Christmas is only a couple days away?”
“Twelve days to be exact.” said a voice.
Bob Parr emerged into the kitchen. He too was wide awake like Dash. The two males just gave a joyful look at the two females.
“And why is this important?”
“I’m glad you asked Violet. You all know that Christmas is one of our most favorite holidays right?” Bob asked. Everyone nodded. “Well, I am thinking of trying something new this year. I’m sure you all get pretty antsy each day. So I’m thinking instead of waiting until Christmas to have fun, we can celebrate a little each day. And on Christmas, we shall have a gigantic party! Now what do you say to that?”
Dash proclaimed, “That is a great idea!”
Helen and Violet shook off their drowsiness. They liked this idea too. Helen and Violet nodded with excitement in their eyes.
“Very well, then. We better get busy. This is going to be the greatest holiday ever!!!”
Violet went to her room and took a quick shower before slipping on a lilac jacket and jeans. Dash zipped in and out of his room in a flash. Bob and Helen also went into their room and changed clothes.
“Everyone, on our first day of Christmas, we shall be decorating our Christmas tree. Now I’m going to get a tree! Want to come, kids?” called Bob.
Dash immediately sprinted down the stairs. Violet came seconds later. Both were anxious in picking the perfect tree. Bob, Violet and Dash all got into the car and drove off, while Helen took care of Jack-Jack. Bob drove the car out of the city.
“Hey dad, I thought we were going to get a tree.” said Dash a little puzzled.
“We are son” He laughed. "But we aren’t getting it from the city. We are going to find the perfect tree in the forest.”
An hour later, they arrived at a large forest area. Violet, Dash and Bob got out of the car and entered the forest. They started to search for their tree. Dash sprinted up to one.
“How about this one?”
After a long look, Bob came to a conclusion. “Nope, too short.”
Dash sprinted up to another one. “How about this one?”
“Too crooked.” said Bob.
For many minutes, Dash would sprint from tree to tree. However, it would be either too tall, too short, too skinny, too stout, or too crooked. Then Violet came up to one.
“Dad, how about this?”
Bob looked at the tree. It was about 8 and a half feet high. It was not too skinny, but not too wide either. It was so straight, it pointed directly to the sky. In short, the tree was indeed perfect.
Bob grabbed a hold of the tree and lifted it off of the ground. He then carried it over to the car, then set it down. He got out some rope and tied the tree onto the roof of the car.
“Well kids, that about does it! Let’s go home”
Bob, Violet, and Dash all got into the vehicle. The car then drove out of the forest, and back into the city of Metroville. After a while, Bob parked the car in front of his house. The kids got out and entered the house.
“Hi Vi. Hey Dash.” greeted Helen. “Were you guys able to find a good tree?”
“Are you kidding mom?” asked Dash.
Then, Bob carried the tree into the house. Every step he took, Bob would leave a trail of fallen pine needles.
“I just vacuumed this floor Bob!” reminded a slightly agitated Helen.
Dash sprinted into the family room with a Christmas tree holder. He placed it down next to the corner of the house. Bob placed the tree into the tree holder and fastened it tightly so that it wouldn’t fall. Violet came in with a pitcher of water. She poured it into the holder. Meanwhile, Helen had just finished vacuuming the floor. She glanced at their Christmas tree. She was amazed at how beautiful it looked. Violet went out of the room. She came back, carrying baby Jack-Jack in her arms.
“Isn’t it beautiful, Jack-Jack?” She asked the baby, tickling his tummy.
The doorbell rang. Violet went to answer it. She was surprised to see who was there on her doorstep.
“Hey Violet.” It was Tony.
Violet gave her boyfriend a gigantic hug. “Tony, please come in. We are about to decorate our tree.”
Tony went inside the house. At the same time, Bob came to the family room once again. He was carrying stacks of boxes filled with Christmas tree decorations. He had to make one more trip after that. When he was finished, eight boxes filled with lights, ornaments, and other colorful items, were assembled.
“Come with me Violet” said Helen as she carried Jack-Jack into the kitchen. A curious Violet followed after her.
Bob took one box and brought out strings of lights. They came in many colors, including red, blue, green, yellow, purple, and white. Dash grabbed the string of white lights and ran to the Christmas tree. He quickly hung the lights. After that he rushed back to get a new color, and then another one. Ten minutes later, all of the lights had been hung.
“That was fast.” said Tony, giving Dash a puzzled look.
Next came the ornaments. There were many various kind of ornaments, including balls, orbs, rings, miniatures, and sets. Bob hung ornaments in all around the top part of the tree. Tony decorated around the middle section of the tree. Dash, being the shortest of the three, hung the ornaments at the bottom.
Later, Violet and Helen emerged from the kitchen. Helen was carrying a tray of fresh gingerbread cookies. Violet brought out five cups and a pitcher of milk. In addition, she brought in Jack-Jack’s bottle, filled with warm milk. A pleasant aroma filled the air as each person grabbed a cookie and a cup of milk. They slowly devoured the warm and tasty cookies. After that, Helen and Bob carried the dishes back to the kitchen.
“Hey Vi, I got to go. It’s almost dark out there.”
Tony went up to Vi and planted a kiss on her cheek. A sensation of warmth surged throughout Vi’s body. Dash looked disgusted and turned away.
Minutes later, all of the ornaments were hung. Bob, Dash, and Violet stared in amazement at the beautifully decorated tree. The lights lit everyone’s eyes as the colorful ornaments added a crisp hint of color to the tree.
“Well everyone, it looks finished.”
“Not yet.” called a voice. Helen entered the room, carrying Jack-Jack and a star for the top of the tree. Helen placed the baby down on the floor and handed him the star. “You ready Jack-Jack?”
Helen lengthened herself to the top of the Christmas tree, grasping Jack-Jack tightly. Once she reached the top, she brought Jack-Jack closer to the top of the tree. Jack-Jack playfully placed the bright star on the top. Everyone clapped their hands as the star shined brilliantly. Each eye was twinkling at the tree. For ten long minutes, the Parr family stared at the tree as the first day drew to a close.
The Incredibles celebrated one Christmas Day:
The first day, they decorate a tree.
