FIC: Decking the Summers Hall

This week's ficlet prompt was an opening line. I chose the one lawyergirl15 supplied, so the opening sentence of this fic is hers. I also exceeded our self-imposed 1000 word limit. Oh well. Considering it's in the Promise of Frost 'verse, I don't think people will mind.

TITLE: Decking the Summers Hall
AUTHOR: Eurydice
RATING: PG. Pure fluff.
SETTING: This takes place in my Promise of Frost 'verse, one year later. That makes this an AU mid-season 5 where Giles has custody of Holly, Spike is her nanny, and all three of them are living with Joyce, while Buffy is going strong in college.
LENGTH: 1425 words
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, which is a shame because usually we're nicer to them than Joss was.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Thank you to sadbhyl for reading this over and convincing me it doesn't suck. I don't usually do fluff. I had no sense of security about this at all. She also supplied Giles' last line of dialogue when she told me the original ending didn't seem very final, so hugs to her. :)
AUTHOR'S NOTE #2: I'll be the first to admit that I never thought I'd dabble in this 'verse again. I haven't even read Frost since I finished it. But I'm in the Christmas spirit and couldn't resist.
