Santa’s Christmas
By Lavina Tien
It was a beautiful December day,
with clear blue skies
and snow-covered treetops.
Christmas was in the air!
But up in Santa’s lodge,
all was quiet.
The usual hustle and bustle
of preparing Christmas presents
was gone,
for Santa had fallen ill.
“Oh dear,
what will the children say
when they don’t receive presents
this year?”
Santa wondered sadly,
as he lay on his bed.
Suddenly,
he heard a noise from outside.
He looked out of the window
and saw his four reindeer
standing patiently as usual.
But they seemed
quite out of breath,
as if they had just finished
a long trip.
And as Santa took a closer look,
he could not believe what he saw.
For behind the reindeer
was a long train of sleds,
carrying little children
dressed in all sorts of colors.
One by one,
they hopped out onto the snow
and headed towards Santa’s lodge.
Soon came a knock on the door.
“Come in!” Santa called out,
for he was extremely curious.
In came a little girl,
hugging something soft
in her arms.
“I heard that you were sick,
Mr. Santa,”
she began.
“So I’m giving you my teddy bear,
to keep you company.”
“Why, thank you little Emma!”
said Santa,
for he knew every child by name.
Then entered a young boy
with a red package in his arms.
“We knew that you were ill,
Papa Santa,” he said.
“So my family knitted
this quilt for you,
to keep you warm in the winter days.”
“Why,
what a wonderful thought Paul!”
beamed Santa,
patting him on the head.
And one by one the children
came in through Santa’s door,
each with a special gift
to wish Santa well.
There were cookies,
pies,
socks,
mittens,
books,
jigsaw puzzles,
and even a small Christmas tree!
“Christmas delivered to my doorstep!”
exclaimed Santa.
“Come; let us
all share these wonderful gifts.”
And he gathered the children
around him in a big circle.
“Santa,
which present do you like best?”
Emma soon piped up.
“My dear little ones,”
Santa replied, smiling.
“It is the love and kindness
that each of you
has shown me today
that is the best present of all.”
He looked fondly at
all the eager faces around him.
“This, my little ones,
is the true meaning of Christmas.”
And with that,
Santa gave each of the children
a big, warm holiday hug.
