One day on my birthday, I was turning 9. I got an elf on a shelf.  I put it on my bookshelf and a couple of months later my elf on the shelf was gone. I was a little creeped out but I decided that it was just my mom. But then on Christmas Eve I found my elf on top of THE CHRISTMAS TREE!!!!!!!! “It has a note,” I said. My mom helped me get it down. The note said, “So I won the first round, now time for the 2 round.” My mom gasped and then I said, “ROUND 2??”  Me and my mom looked at each other and...SCREAMED! We were terrified and we couldn’t sleep. In the morning we were so tired, but we were happy because it was CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! So I opened all my gifts. But there was only 1 more left. The wrapping paper was black with a red bow. I opened it and it was my…….. ELF ON THE SHELF!!!!! Me and my mom burnt it and we never saw it again.

The Christmas Portal  

One winter day an old man who did not believe in Christmas tripped on a piece of wood. It was not a regular piece of wood - it was a portal. It was the Christmas portal! As the days went by he kept tripping on it. 

The night before Christmas Eve he opened it. As he went on he saw how Christmas brings kids joy. From then on he got his grandkids Christmas presents and donated presents. Then the night before Christmas, he saw Santa and Santa told him...Santa will forgive him for some things but not all...the very next day he went through and he begged Santa to give him another chance … That is Santa did.

One Christmas day I got a huge present and I opened it. A teddy bear came out. It was so fluffy. I fell in love with it almost immediately. That night I slept with her and I named her Lucky. I fell asleep a second after. The next day I deemed Lucky my favorite toy! But after I deemed Lucky my favorite toy she came alive! But then I woke up.    THE END

Winter is a great season to play. You can have a great time in the snow. You can sled down a huge snow hill or have an awesome snowball fight. On Christmas you get to find your stocking and have a lot of fun unwrapping your Christmas presents along with making a huge mess in your living room. You get so much awesome new toys you can play with them all in only 1 day. That is what makes Christmas the best time of the year.

One Winter Morning

One winter morning, the sun was rising over the snow. Suddenly I woke up because I had had a nightmare. I got on my clothes and went outside to play. I made two adorable snowmen. Or should I say snowpets - a kitten and a puppy. They were so cute and my mom came out and yelled, “Hot chocolate is ready!” I ran into the house and my mom put a warm blanket over me as I sipped my hot chocolate. I was with my siblings Natalie, Graycen, and Grant. Natalie told some jokes and we all laughed. Natalie is really good at jokes and puns. After that my dad came and gave us all a big hug.

One day a girl named Madison was writing a letter to Santa. What she wanted was a chameleon, an RC car and for her family to be happy. On Christmas Eve, she put her letter on the table and that night Santa got her all the things she wanted. He got her the chameleon and the RC car. That morning she got a lot and even a ticket to her favorite singer - a v.i.p. Pass to a Marshmello concert! She loved her gift. She played with Handsome the chameleon. He changed color to blend in with the leaves. Handsome loved Madison! Her mom, Megan, loved Handsome and her dad loved him too! Her sisters, Maeci and Mackenzie, were jealous. Handsome loved everyone. He was so cute.

This is my Christmas story. Okay, so when I was five years old I was waiting all night when I heard something downstairs. I went downstairs to check what it was and there he was, right in front of me! His name is Santa Claus. He was leaving me presents. I said, “Hello.” And then he said, “Ho ho ho.” Then again he said, “Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas.” I ran upstairs to tell my mom what I had just seen. And I ran downstairs with my mom. And I said, “Merry Christmas!” I saw him disappear up the chimney. My mom said, “Santa!” “I know I just saw.” I said. “Go back to bed,” she said to me. I ran upstairs and again I heard something downstairs. When I went downstairs again I saw Santa. He was fatter than an elephant! My mom tells me not to call him that, but I still do because I’m 9, bro I’m just kidding, I’m 10.

One nice winter day this girl named Makaelyn got all ready to go play outside. 20 minutes later she came inside her nice cozy cabin and she grabbed a red pen and a blank piece of paper. In her nicest handwriting she wrote a letter to Santa. These are some things she put on her list: a big narwhal, a hair kit and new clothes.  Also this thing she has been wanting for a long time a ps4 so this year she hopes she will get what she wants.

The Night Before Christmas!!! 

So in the morning I got up and we had winter break it was so fun. When it was time to go to bed I woke up in the middle of the night and I heard thumping downstairs. When I went down there, there were presents and I saw some dust. It was weird, really weird. I saw Santa in boots and he was really chubby! I finally got a hoverboard, a TV and an Xbox. It is very nice, but I also got tons and tons of candy. Back to Santa... When I saw him I said “AHHHHH! Who are you?” He said, “I am Santa Claus, don’t you remember me? I’m the one who gives you presents.” “NO I don’t,” I said.  “Ho, ho, ho, little kid you’re crazy!” Santa said. “NO, you’re the crazy one breaking into my house,” I said “Shhh! You’re going to wake up your parents!!!” Santa said.

One sunny morning in the winter, a girl was playing outside in the snow and making a bunch of snowmen in the big yard. They all had hats, scarves, gloves, and smiles. The girl’s name was Chloe. She lived in a mansion; a big mansion. But she did go to a normal school though. She was not the popular kid, though she didn’t care that she was rich and lived in a big mansion. People always said that she was so cool and blah, blah, blah. She just said she didn’t care about if she was popular or not. She just said that she was like every other kid there. But they just kept on saying that she was LIKE THE COOLEST KID IN SCHOOL, LOL. She got so tired of it that she told her mom that she wanted to go to a different school because of everything that had happened at school. Her mom said, “FINE.” And she got to go to a different school where nobody knew she was rich. She was happy, happy, happy. So happy that she screamed in delight. Then she had a little less homework to do. Then came CHRISTMAS. She was writing her list to Santa and this is what it said: 

Dear Santa,

What I want for Christmas is a new phone case, boots, a hair kit, an Apple watch, a computer, a journal, and a baby hatchimal.                                                                                                  

These are only some of the things she wanted for Christmas. She was a really good kid.

One snowy rainy day, Kelven put on his poncho to play soccer. He tripped over a stump. He tumbled and tumbled and then he became a Snowman. He got knocked out for a couple seconds because it was so cold outside. The next day he woke up and he was surprised that he had stick hands now. The next day kids found him and started playing with him. “Have another one,” the oldest boy said. He hit off a chunk of Kelven. In Kelven´s mind he has saying, oh my gosh! In February, the snow and Kelven started to melt to water in the soil. The next day he became grass. Green, smells good when cut. Awwwww, puppies play and, OH NO! We have a puppy and she poops everywhere. Here she comes Bailey, Baaailey, wait I’m grass, I forgot that. Owww that hurt! Bailey, stop laying on me. (Next December) Why am I not a snowman?
