The 25th of December
I woke up on the 25th of December. I was very excited and ran down the stairs. When I looked out the window I saw a lot of snow everywhere. I couldn't wait to see what Santa had brought me so I went into the sitting room and I was really happy when I saw all my surprises.
Me and my brother Billy had great fun playing with all our toys all day. Then we had our
dinner and pulled all the crackers that were under the tree. It was a great day and I'm really looking forward to this year. I hope everyone has lovely day! Happy Christmas, everyone!

It was a snowy night. Boys and girls alike in bed waited excitedly for Santa Claus to come but during flight Santa crashed and the bag of toys went to Africa, the reindeers went to New York and Santa and the sleigh went to Australia. There was a panic amongst the elves but one elf stepped up - Candyfloss was his name - and said that he would go to Africa.
Meanwhile in New York a boy named Cian was sleeping when suddenly there were sounds coming from the roof of his apartment building. He rushed out of bed and climbed out to the roof and saw the reindeers. The reindeer got frightened but they became friends, then Cian got on Rudolf and started flying to Africa. There Candyfloss got the bag of toys and Rudolf led Cian to Candyfloss. They had to try and find Santa but Candyfloss remembered Rudolf had a tracker on his saddle that led them to Santa. They followed the tracker to Santa and then Santa went from house to house delivering presents and Candyfloss was Elf of the Year and Cian was remembered in elf history. Merry Christmas.
Christmas at Mixerland
There was a land with creatures called Tixes. With a wolf head, body and feet, dragon tail, wings starting at the tail, blck and up to the head fading into white. It lives in Mixerland and where two humans know where it is. Brooke has a portal that when it connects to Jamie’s it summons a door that we can walk through.
It was Navidad Eve and we wanted to go visit the Tixes. On they went. They arrived and popped in, had a chat, then popped out, connected their portals. Nothing appeared. What had happened?
They waddled back to the Tixes’ mansion and got a nice surprise when Rain jumped out at them. "How did that happen? "asked Shadow. "I know," said Thunder. "You don’t use your portals on holidays like An Nollaig". The girls were thunderstruck. Noel without their family? "It’s already Natale here," said Shadow. "You can spend your holiday here!" So they did.
In the morning they travelled back. They went to bed and then, downstairs, a door appeared, and Shadow stepped out and put presents under the tree and vanished. Brook wrote a story about it, and that, my friend, is the story you just finished.
Wishes Do Come True by Olivia
There once was a girl called Izzy who is 10 years old and lived with her parents in Borris, Ireland. Her dad travelled abroad lots for work, everyone thought she was fine with him being away but she wasn't. He always made it home for the holidays. Izzy's favourite day of the year is Christmas day. Her dad went away for a work trip to South Africa at the start of December. Izzy was excited because her dad always brings her a little thing.
Izzy was just sitting on the couch when her mum walked in looking sad, Izzy noticed that she was holding her phone and her Dad was on FaceTime. Her Mum handed her the phone and Izzy immediately asked "when will you be home?" Her Dad looked at her and said that he was stuck in South Africa because there was a Covid lockdown. Izzy was so sad. She went to bed that night wishing to her Elf that her Dad would come home.
24th December and no sign of Dad. It was almost bedtime when Izzy heard the doorbell ring, she opened the door to see her dad, she had tears of joy. Wishes do come true.
The night before Christmas there wasn't a sound.
Everyone was asleep, but my thoughts raced around.
All of a sudden there was a noise,
I ran down the stairs to a pile of toys.
I saw an old man, his beard white as snow.
And a bag full of gifts all wrapped with a bow.
He walked to the tree and unloaded his sack.
Then went back up the chimney, his bag on his back.
I looked out the window and saw him fly away,
With 9 little reindeers leading the way.
I woke up this morning and ran down the stairs,
To find out that none of the presents were there.

Santa Gets Discovered by James
On Christmas Eve I was watching the news to see Santa leaving the North Pole with his reindeer. Then I got into my comfy bed, but I couldn't go to sleep with all the excitement.
Soon I fell asleep but then about an hour later I heard footsteps on the roof. I thought could it be Santa Claus himself? I ran in to my mam and dad’s room trying to wake them up but they wouldn't wake up so I tiptoed down the stairs and then through the hall. Next minute Santa flew down the chimney and I was hiding behind the couch but then I got spotted and Santa got spotted too. He said “You should be in bed”. He showed me Rudolf and I got everything I wanted. And then me and Santa became great friends so then I went back to bed. Now we always meet on the night before St. Stephen's day and he always gives my everything I want.
When My Mind Went Pop by Zoe
Here I am it's the day before Christmas. I'm now eating a Double Decker. Let me introduce myself: my name is Katie Ryan. I’m nine years old and my parents are super rich. I even have my own four poster bed. I'm looking out the window and the stars are shining brightly against the black, dark sky.
Wohoo! It's morning. I'm so excited! I jumped and ran around my room. After I sprinted into my mom and dad’s room. I jumped on their bed. I am so excited! As they got up I ran up and down the hall. We all walked down the stairs. When we got down I unwrapped the biggest present and it was a blue bike with the Nike tick, which is exactly the bike I wanted. I also got a flashing red helmet with flames on the side. I went outside and tried the bike out and it was really fast and fun. But then my mind went pop!
I suddenly felt something was missing. I thought “What about children all over the world who don't get presents on this special day?” I decided to give my money to charities so I did.
