A Home for Christmas
by JASMINE JOHNSON, age 10
This is a story about an orphan named Angel. Angel is 4 years old, with a head of golden curls and bright, blue eyes. Angel was dropped off at the orphanage doorstep when she was just a small baby. Although the orphanage treated her well, she longed for a real mommy and daddy.
One night when Mary, one of the workers, was reading Angel a story before bedtime, Angel looked up with her big blue eyes and said "Where did I get my name?" Mary responded with a soft smile, "When we opened the door and saw your beautiful face, we knew that you were a gift from God, and we knew Angel was the only name right for you." Angel looked up at Mary with a puzzled expression on her face and said, "If I'm a present from God, then why didn't my mommy and daddy want me?
People always want presents, they don't give them away." Mary's eyes filled with tears, and all she could do was pull the sweet little girl into her arms and hold her close.
Meanwhile, across the city, Grace and John tossed and turned in bed. Finally, Grace turned on the lamp beside the bed and tapped John on the shoulder, "Are you sleeping?" she whispered. "How can I, I'm too excited," he replied. "Tomorrow our whole life will change as we leave the orphanage with our new family." Grace snuggled next to her husband and said with a shaky voice, "This will be the best Christmas ever!" John turned the lamp off and they slept soundly.
Back at the orphanage, the morning light streamed through the window, waking all the children. Mary walked in and said in a cheerful voice, "Everyone get up! Pick out your best clothes, because a family is coming to visit us!" Angel bounced out of bed and ran to her closet to grab her white, lace Christmas dress. When she was all bathed and dressed, Mary lovingly tied a white bow in Angel's curls. "You look like an angel, sweetheart," Mary said as she kissed Angel on the nose.
All the children gathered by the big Christmas tree in the playroom and waited for the new family. Angel heard a little dark-haired girl tell all the other children that she was the prettiest of them all, so she would be picked. With her feelings hurt, Angel hugged her teddy bear as she went to sit in the corner. A few moments later, John and Grace opened the front door. "Oh, John, how can we pick just one?" she whispered.
At that time, John had already spotted Angel sitting in the corner. He grabbed Grace's hand and smiled, "I've found our little girl." They walked slowly to Angel and kneeled down beside her, and John asked, "How would you like a mommy and daddy for Christmas?" "How did you know I asked Santa for a mommy and daddy?" she replied. With that, John and Grace wrapped their arms around Angel and said, "Let's go home, little one. There is a whole new life waiting for us."
The Real Meaning of Christmas
By KYLIE BELTZ, 11
There was a poor family that lived near Lively Avenue in northern
Minnesota. It was almost Christmas and that family hardly had any food or clothing and they lived on the street.
On that avenue there was a rich family who had a little girl named
Mindy. Mindy was in second grade and her class was learning what it was like to be poor. She knew about the poor family and she felt guilty because she was so rich and they were so poor. Mindy wished with all her heart that her parents would listen to her when she told them that they should help the poor family. Mindy went downstairs to the parlor.
"Mom," she said, "I think we should show our Christmas spirit by
helping out the poor family down the street. I feel so horrible that I have a down jacket and more than enough food and they have practically nothing! I'm going to see them and make them my friends."
"No you are not young lady!" Mindy's mother stormed. "I don't want you near those people, they could be dangerous!
"That is why they need me. If you won't help them I will. I will buy them gifts and bring them food and clothes. I will have Christmas dinner with them. I hate to say it to you, Mom, but the real meaning of Christmas comes from the heart and soul, not from the gifts we receive or how fortunate we are. That's how you think of it." Mindy was on the verge of sobbing now. "How would you feel if you were poor during Christmas, bad, right? So would they. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and we'll set extra places at our table with them!"
"All right, you win. After I listened to what you said about the real meaning of Christmas I realized that I have been selfish and mean to others. I probably am on Santa's naughty list. I will give more than I receive this year. Anyway, why don't you go down there right now and bring them our old but nice, warm blankets!"
Mindy breathed a huge sigh of relief, ran and gave her mom a big bear hug and said, "Oh, Mom, you are so wonderful!"
On Christmas Eve the poor family, known as the Krups family, sang carols, danced, and ate with Mindy's family. Mindy's family gave the Krups some gifts and the Krups gave Mindy and her parents a good lesson and something more important than gifts LOVE!

The Christmas Miracle
by BETHANY ZETAH, 12
East Gull Lake
As the snow proceeds on a chilly day, three kids played outside making snowmen. The mailbox, which belongs to their house, stood outside on its pole as usual. This mailbox, Max, knew that it was only a few days before Christmas because the mailman was delivering Christmas cards by the dozens. Even the Nelson's, the people living in the house including the children, got five cards. Max was a clever and intelligent mailbox that was silver and metal. Max wondered as he looked at the Christmas tree through a window, "What is that for? Why is there an angel on top of it? Why do we celebrate Christmas?" He knew at that moment that he had to find out.
He first asked other mailboxes, but they didn't have a clue. Therefore, he decided to look through the cards in the mailbox. However, they just said "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Holidays." Later in the day, the Nelson family went outside. The four year old son asked his mother, "When was Jesus born?" His mother simply said, "On Christmas about 2000 years ago." Max overheard this and thought, "Who is Jesus?" Even for a smart mailbox, Max could not figure it out. However, he had to find out.
That night, when all the houses were dark like the sky, Max stayed up thinking. He looked up at the sky and one star stuck out. It was a star from the North. Suddenly something came down from it. It was an angel! The angel said, "God, the Father of Jesus, has been wanting to tell you what Christmas is about, and here I am! Mary and Joseph had Jesus. Jesus carried a cross and died on it for you and me. To find out more, you can read this bible," as she handed him a bible. Then the angel flew away into the night.
The Kitty for Christmas
by MEGAN DEROSIER, 11
Once there was a poor family from the Appalacian Mountains. These people were the Simons. There was Molly 35, Wayne 38, and Caitlin 9. The mom was Molly, her husband Wayne, and their daughter Caitlin. Caitlin had always gotten her Christmas present from local churches. They were the best gifts because they were wrapped so beautifully. But her parents could not buy her anything because they were so poor. Then one year they saved up part of their money to buy her an electronic kitty that moves when you pet. She had always wanted one.
Then one day Wayne and Molly went to get the weekly groceries and the car broke down and they used all the money they had saved for Caitlin's little electronic kitty to have the car fixed. On Christmas eve, Wayne went into the shop to pay the bill and pick up the car. He saw the mechanic playing with a small kitten. The kitten was black on the upper body and white on the lower body.
The kitten was purring so loudly he could hear it through the door of the shop. The mechanic turned around as Wayne entered and gave Wayne the bill and Wayne paid the mechanic. The mechanic asked if Wayne had any kids. He answered, "yes?" Wayne was quite confused. The mechanic said, "Oh, well I have this nice kitten. He came from a family who was moving and could no longer take care of him so since my wife is allergic to cats, I was wondering if you would like him." Wayne's mouth dropped and he said, "Yes, I would love to take that kitten home to my daughter!" The mechanic smiled at Wayne and said, "Well, it does come with two bags of cat food, a few toys, a litter box, and even a brand new kitty bed."
Wayne took the cat into his arms and took it home to Caitlin. As she lay in her bed sleeping peacefully, he placed the kitten beside her. The kitten began to play with her hair and purr loudly. She awoke to see her parents smiling and her new kitten chasing his tail. "Merry Christmas, Caitlin," her parents said. She never had such a wonderful Christmas! Caitlin named the cat Casper. She named him after one of the three wise men. Casper loved his new home.
Rudolph The Sequel
by SAM HEADLEE, 10
Rudolph was the head reindeer that pulled Santa's sleigh. This was a great honor, but he was getting tired of it. He hated getting a frozen face from flying first. He's always had to block the other reindeer from the freezing cold wind as they were flying. He decided he was going to ask Comet if he could change places in the line up. But when he asked Comet at lunch break, Comet just said, "No way, you're the one with the light-up nose!"
He asked all the other reindeer, but they all had the same answer. So he changed his mind and decided he was going to be one of Santa's elves. But when he asked the elves, they said he wouldn't be able to sort the multi-colored toys because everyone knows reindeer are color blind. Rudolph then asked the Ghost of Christmas Past.
The ghost said in a snarly voice, "Yes, you can, but you have to come with me to a Christmas past and stand there and watch as all the other reindeer laugh at your red nose and call you names. Rudolph didn't want to do that so he turned to the Ghost of Christmas Future. When he asked the ghost if he would be able to switch jobs with him, the ghost said nothing and showed him images of Santa crashing because Rudolph wasn't lighting Santa's way. Just at that moment he realized he belonged at the front of the line up with a frozen face because he did not want Santa to crash, and because he was Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer!
My Christmas Delight
By JENESSA BOCK, 12
How do you spend your Christmas? Well, every year my family and I will decorate, and this year were even going to be in a most decorative house contest and hopefully win.
Well, this year our first thing we did was take out our decorations and brainstorm where we would put it and how we would decorate it if it needed to be decorated. Next we would put them up and decorate. If something was broken (light bulbs) my step dad would fix them until they were all sparkling bright. When we were done fixing them, we put them in their position and if we didn't have enough we sometimes set out to buy some more the same night. We worked all night until every task was finished or if we were freezing cold, we kept on going even if we thought we wouldn't win. It was a family time together.
When we were done that night we went out again the next night, one after another. That night I wanted to put up a fake but real looking green plain tree with no decorations. I didn't know what to do with it . "Be imaginative," my stepdad would keep on saying. He always tried to encourage us. So then at that moment I remembered my mom getting green night light sized 16 foot long Christmas lights so I put the tree behind Mary and Joseph and started to wrap the tree with sparkling green lights. One after another until I was done. It looked like Jesus being born in Bethlehem because it looked so real. Mary and Joseph were holding Jesus on some hay with some backgrounds too by the end of our driveway so everyone could see the lights delights and how decorative it was.
When we were done around the yard, next were the icicle lights along with a Santa figure that glowed with his reindeer on the roof. My stepdad would go on the roof and we would hand him all the decorations including the clips for the icicle lights. We would take tons of extension cords, hook them up one after another throughout the yard and turn everything on when we were done.
Day, night, day, night, they were lit for people to get a glimpse and some ideas. I would even decorate my room with icicle and colorful string lights, put up a mini Christmas tree that I would decorate, and put gifts under from me.
When decorating outside was done, we always decorated inside too. When we put our Christmas tree up we all had individual boxes with our own ornaments and then we began to put them on. My mom would set out electronic decorations around the house and added some music.
Sometimes we took turns topping the Christmas tree. We would light it, tinsel it and it even rotated around in circles in it's own.
When we were done my mom would put out a rug and have lights on all night and I would sit alone and watch the decorations go in circles. I would soon fall asleep.
A few days later we would put all seven names in a hat and draw one and whoever we picked we had to shop for, but we couldn't have someone twice unless we started over. Then we shopped until we dropped. We each got the same amount of money and we could get whatever we chose to get them.
When we were done we would go home and wrap gifts and put them under the Christmas tree. Sometimes some gifts were loud and wiggly so we shook them to guess what they were. Sometimes we just knew.
On Christmas Eve we would go to church and have mass. When we got home the parents would go downstairs before we even got a glimpse of the gifts to make sure they were organized or something. Then one by one from youngest to oldest us kids were traveling the stairs to the gifts. We were amazed. Basically the whole living room was filled with presents for nine so we piled on the furniture where we would open them.
We took turns handing out gifts to everyone and when everyone had one we could open. We each had our own separate piles because some had the same gifts.
When we were done we would go and snack on delicious food on the table like salmon, crackers and cheese, chocolate and vegetables until we were full.
All night we played with our new gifts, watched Christmas movies and quickly we ate all our candy until midnight.
When the next day came we thought how we would decorate for the next holiday. We waited about 2 weeks before taking our decorations down. They were put in their own boxes and put away until next year.

Five-year old Jake was as excited as could be. It was almost Christmas! Jake loved this holiday. The snow, a christmas tree and best of all presents! He told himself this year he would see Santa. He always tried to, but never succeeded. He also said he would get the fire truck he always wanted. 2 days from Christmas a huge blizzard struck. Jake knew Santa couldn't see through all the snow. If Santa couldn't see then he couldn't deliver presents! Jake hoped the blizzard would stop, but the days flew by and it showed no sign of stopping. The day before Christmas, he couldn't stop thinking, "where's Santa?" That night, Jake abandoned all hope of Santa coming. Disappointed, he left for bed. He woke up early and sneaked downstairs to have a glass of milk. But something red and shiny in the corner caught his eye. He turned, and spied a fire truck!

There was once a moose family who lived on Pine Point where it smelled like a thick forest. On the night of Christmas Eve, Mucky, a little moose was decorating a Christmas tree. Mary, his sister called out, "The star goes on the top!"
"Okay," said Dad. He reached up and put the star on the top!
"Let's talk about what Christmas is supposed to mean," said Dad.
"Christmas is for presents," said Mucky.
"Wrong," said Mom. "Christmas is the spirit of giving and doing for others."
"That's it," said Dad.
"Christmas caroling tonight!" sang Mucky happily. "I hope Papa Santa comes tonight."
"I will pour milk into his mug," said Mucky.
"I am baking cookies for Papa Santa," said Mom. "Mucky and Mary put your clothes on and go outside."
"Let's go sledding on the big hill by Prick's cottage," said Mucky.
On the way up Mary spotted Elmer Prick, the porcupine. They made a big jump at the bottom of the hill and little jumps on the hill. Later on, the animals came by to go Christmas caroling. They sang "Silent Night," "Away in a Manger" and "The First Noel" all in the big forest.
Later on Mucky said, "Lets go home and go to sleep."
When everybody was asleep, hoof steps sounded on the roof and a bright, red light appeared. Suddenly the fire place grew bigger! Papa Santa popped in. "A good spirited family we got here," he exclaimed munching on a cookie. He decided to leave something special for this moose family so he put extra toys in the living room. He put toys in the stockings and a reindeer antler on the counter. He gulped down some of milk and climbed up the chimney into his sleigh and was gone.
He shouted, "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night."
In the morning, Mucky got up first and looked at the antler. There was a note crumbled between two spikes it said:
Be this good this every year.
You were the best family this year.
Keep it up!
Merry Christmas Everybody!
My Story About Christmas
By ALLEN JOHNSON, 8
Christmas is my favorite holiday. It is my favorite time of the year because it is the time when we are together as a family. We go to church to celebrate Jesus' birthday and to be thankful for Jesus. Because if we didn't have him we wouldn't have Christmas at all.
I like gift opening time because I finally get to see what is in my presents. It seems like it takes forever to get to open them and you have to take care of your presents because if they see the present wrecked that will hurt their feelings. And it is fun to see other people open the presents we got them. I am thankful to be lucky enough to get present because some kids don't get presents at all.
You have to remember to use your manners. If you don't it will hurt peoples feelings. During my Christmas we have people over I like it because they are so nice to my family.
The Best Christmas Ever
By QUINN HARMAN, 8
Once there were three mice in a home, but there was something missing. They never had a Christmas tree at Christmas time. They tried to get a tree, but there was no money for Mrs. Mouse to buy one and they were too tiny to cut down their own. So every year the sweet mouse family did without a tree.
This Christmas Eve was different. A nice tall tree and a note that said, "From Santa Claus" was found on their front step. Santa must have known that the mouse family really wanted a Christmas tree, so he decided to help them. Mrs. Mouse and her two children decided that because Santa was so kind to them, that they would return the kindness. Mrs. Mouse baked Santa forty sweet tasting cookies, all made with pure love in each one.
After that, Santa left a tree every year for the mouse family and in return, Mrs. Mouse baked her loving cookies for Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their elves. The best gift of all was the love that was shared by helping each other.
A Christmas To Remember
By SARAH PASKEWITZ, age 9
When I was seven my family and I went to my grandma's house to celebrate Christmas. After we finished supper, we kids went downstairs to play. Soon it was time to open presents so we went upstairs. I got a lot of presents. We kids went back downstairs to play some more and after about 30 minutes my mom called us back upstairs and much to our surprise, Santa Claus was sitting in the rocking chair! He gave everyone something! Even the adults. All the kids got a flashlight and a poster and all the adults got a pack of M & M's. My sister said later that our neighbor Neal Dreher dressed up as Santa Claus, but I did not believe her. That is the Christmas I will always remember.
A Christmas Memory
By ADA WAHI, age 10
I remember the Christmas that I got that toy computer. I think I was five or six years old. I was living in Staples. Jesus gave Mama and Daddy the money to buy it for me. The computer was purple and gray. It had a green part you could pull out, and it took four AAA batteries. I played with it all the time. All the family ate was cookies! Grama was at our house with mom, dad, and me. I loved my computer. Too bad I left it at the hospital when Nijah was being born.
A Christmas I Remember
By MIRANDA DENNY, 9
I wanted a guitar for Christmas once and here's my story...
I woke up and went and jumped on my mom's bed and said, "it's Christmas." My mom woke up and made some coffee. I asked my mom about 10 times, "when can we open presents?"
I watched TV for about a half an hour. Then my sisters Nique, Dani, and Jessi woke up. Then my mom said that we could start opening presents. I ran into my living room and I said, "Let's see who can open all their presents the fastest." So we all started to open them. I opened the largest present that I had and it was a guitar, and it had a guitar case with it and everything. That was the best present I ever got.
I then told my mom that I was going to set out extra milk and cookies next year.

The Best Christmas Ever
By PAIGE KLIMEK, 9
On Christmas I made a list and put by the milk and cookies. I was so excited. On my list I put that I could get a Polly Pocket, the game Fib Finder, and a CD player. I was getting pretty tired so I went to bed. During the night I heard something.
Then after awhile I couldn't hear anything so I got out of bed and ran downstairs and there were a lot of presents. I just missed Santa I think. When everybody woke up we opened presents. I opened one of my presents and it was a Polly Pocket and I loved it. Then I opened one more of my presents from my Grandma and it was a CD player. When I got the other present I opened it and it was the game Fib Finder. I was so happy. I got all of the things I wanted.
Then our friends came and they gave my sisters and I a dress. The dresses were beautiful. After that our half brother and half sister came and they opened their presents. They said "Hi" to our family and friends. Then my dad put the star on top of the Christmas tree and it was very bright and yellow.
A Tennessee Christmas
By JENNA ZIEGLER, 10
Christmas is not about presents and candy; it is about family coming together and remembering what's really important! Last Christmas my family and I went to Tennessee. We stayed in a cabin near the Smokey Mountains. The people that owned the cabins were very nice to us. On Christmas eve we drove on the mountain to the top, but it was very foggy!
I think we were in the clouds. On the way down, we stopped the car and we got out to take a picture. When we got back in the car, the car would not start. My dad got mad and tried to fix it. He called a tow truck driver. He went to his cell phone, but his cell phone did not work because it was not charged.
We all waited while my dad charged his cell phone. He called the tow truck and while we were waiting for it, a nice family came and offered us a ride to a place where we could use the phone to check on my dad because he stayed with our car to wait for the tow truck. After we called, we all looked around for a little bit because we were at a museum.
Later the nice family gave us a ride to our cabin. We said thank you and we got their address. After that they said their kids had not ever seen snow in their whole lives but the next day it was supposed to snow. After that we went inside to wait for my dad to come back to the cabin.
When he came home we all went to sleep and the next morning it was Christmas and we all got great presents, but best of all, we got to be together!
My Christmas Memory
By TAYLOR BISSONETTE, age 9
We were at my grandma and grandpa's house. We were opening presents. It was my grandma's turn to open her presents. Before we started, I was asking my uncle why he put an envelope in a cereal box. He would not tell me. He said, "you will see."
It was my 7th Christmas that year. When my grandpa opened it, it said my uncle was accepted to medical school. Every one was very happy. He is the youngest out of my mom and her brother and sister. After we were all done, I showed my grandma my picture of Santa when I met him.

My Christmas Memory
By NATHAN EAGLE TAIL, age 10
Last Christmas we had a lot of snow in Minneapolis. Minneapolis is my favorite town in this state. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I got a dirt bike and a sled too, but I just went sledding down a big hill all day long with my brothers and their friends. One of my brother's friends broke one of his ribs. He was walking down the hallway barely breathing. I will never forget that. Anyways, I like to snowboard. That's my story.

I walked all the way upstairs and I woke my brothers Beau and Trent up.
I said that there were some presents and Santa Clause was downstairs too. My bothers and I went downstairs and we opened our presents and played with them. We had fun on Christmas.

By CELENA MARTIN, 10
One day before Christmas we went to my aunt Mary's house and waited for the family to come. After everybody came we opened our presents. My uncle passed out the presents. After we looked at the presents we went down in the basement. We played Bop It in the guest room.
My cousins Susan and Emma and I were playing the Bop It. Then my other cousins Orion and Spencer were playing Star Wars in the guest room in the dark. They had the lights turned off. Then I went to bed on the couch in the basement. Then we went home and opened the ones that we had gotten from home. There was wrapping paper all over the floor. We had lots of fun.

The Christmas Mystery
By ERICA SWENSON, 8
One morning I woke up. It was a very special day. Guess what day it was?!
When my family woke up it was time to open presents. First I counted mine. I had fifteen presents. My sister had fifteen too. Suddenly the phone rang. I yelled, "I will get it!" But my sister got it! It was for me though. No one was there. Oh well! Then I went back upstairs. When I got up the stairs, I counted my presents again. "WHAT!" I yelled. My mom and dad said, "What's the matter?" I said, "One of my presents is missing." "Are you sure?" they said. "Yes, I counted my presents just before the phone rang. I had fifteen. Now I have fourteen. Someone stole it." "No one stole your present." "Yes this did! IT WAS MY SISTER!" "You don't have any proof," said my dad. "Yes I do!" "Quit it, both of you," said my mom. "Where is your sister?" said my mom.
She went outside. She was carrying a package. It had huge letters. It is a mystery. So I went outside and found my sister with the package. The she saw me. She started to cry. Then she said, "This was from me." Then I said I can have it back. She said yes. Then she said she was sorry. I said that it was alright. Then we went back inside. We opened our presents. I loved all of my presents. That ends the story of The Christmas Mystery.
