It’s that time of year to decorate trees, make cookies and make your wish list! Can you believe that Christmas is only 7 days away! Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a time when all of my family is together and we have an amazing time! When I do appreciate all the gifts a receive, I especially enjoy the actual feel of Christmas. I can’t wait for Christmas and winter break! I hope we get at least 2 inches of snow this year! Happy almost Christmas everyone! 🎅🎄🎁
Isn’t it so exciting that Christmas is in 20 days!? I can’t wait. I just got my Christmas tree, but it doesn’t have anything on it yet. Actually, I haven’t put up any decorations yet. Josh, my brother, wants a pocket knife, but I don’t think he’s getting one. I have no idea what I want. I hope everyone is excited about Christmas and I hope everyone is ready, too.
Christmas!! Christmas is definitly my favorite holiday! I love decorating for Christmas like getting our tree, decorating it, decorating the outside of our house, hanging snowflakes, and absolutely opening presents on Christmas Day! We got our Christmas tree on Monday and our wreath to decorate. Once we were done decorating our Christmas tree I could feel the holiday season coming sooner and sooner. But one thing I don’t like is Christmas Eve, because I am so excited that I can’t fall asleep. I hope everyone has a good Christmas, what is everyone asking for?
It was a cold day when I woke up. I looked out the window and everything was white! Yes, no school! Mid-december 2010 was awesome! I went to the top of all the hills I could find and sledded down them all, on my brand new sled. Snow flurries pelting my face as I go down the hill at about 15 miles per hour. Snowball wars, building gigantic castles then throwing 2-foot snow chunks at each other. Throwing snow balls at the ice truck, who moved the snow out of the road and put salt down. Laughing, playing, talking, having fun. Getting snow in our shoes. Going inside and having hot chocolate. Going back out and sledding more. Watching the snow slowly melting away. The last snow drops are gone now. This day was very fun.
I wake up, knowing there won’t be snow. It hasn’t snowed in about a year now, and this winter is a bad one for sledding in North Carolina. I got a brand new sled, but it’ll probably have to wait another year. Sad, sitting inside all day, lonely. None of my friends are home, though I wish they were. Playing fetch with my dogs. Finally, my neighbors get home later that day. I ring their doorbells, and we play outside. Then we come over to my house. It’s mid-December now, and it’s about 60 outside. Later that day, we play basketball. I have a sleepover with my neighbor, which was fun. Just not as fun as last year. How I miss December 2010……..
My winter break was very long and exciting. On the 23rd, we went Christmas shopping with my grandfather, and got lots of toys. On Christmas Eve, we went to our Grandfather’s house and opened the presents. And later that night, we went to my OTHER grandparents’ house, and opened gifts there and had dinner. On the way back from dinner, I hid in my cousins car. They didn’t notice me until they were at their house, when I jumped out from behind the back seat and scared them all. It was really funny seeing their reactions. They called my dad and my brother, telling them to come to their house and pick me up. They did, and they were laughing, too. On the way home, we saw a car wreck. My dad checked it out, and came back 1 hour later when the police got there. Apparently the person who crashed was under the influence of alcohol. His car was destroyed, and my dad also said that the person had left the scene, which is illegal. If you don’t want to get grossed out, don’t read the next sentence. The man had left a trail of blood everywhere when he ran away into the woods. I got home at about 9:30. Then, at 10:00, we went to bed, exhausted. The next morning we woke up, and had to wait 3 hours for my dad to get up. When he got up, we ran downstairs and were amazed at the gifts we got. I had gotten a new iPhone! I was so excited, and I use it all the time now. After we were done at our dad’s house, we went to our mom’s house and opened gifts there, and got some really things. Then, at 12:00, my OTHER grandparent’s came to our house for lunch. My cousins are late a lot, so they got to my house at 2:00.When they got there, we all ate a huge lunch, then opened our other gifts. After we opened the gifts, we went to our basement and played until 3:00, when we came upstairs and went outside to play. Then they left at 6:00, and I took a nap because I was exhausted. I woke up at 7:00 the next morning and saw that my neighbors’ trampoline was up. So, I spent the whole day jumping on it. I also did on the 27th and 28th, From the 28th through 29th, I didn’t do much except for play with my new Christmas gifts. On New Year’s Eve, my dad had his friend over until 10:00. At 12:00, I watched the acorn drop. Then, we went to bed at 2:00 in the morning. On New Year’s Day, I jumped on the trampoline again, and had my friends over. On January 2nd, we made a movie and posted it to YouTube. It was really cool.
I like christmas a lot but it has different meanings for different people. Anyway, I wrote an acrostic poem about christmas.
Cocoa, when it’s cold outside.
Holiday time and Haunakah if you’re jewish.
Riding in an airplane to get to your destination.
Isn’t it nice to sleep in during vacation?
Snow, what I’m always wishing for.
Tearing open presents.
Morning of the 25th.
Always having lots of fun.
Snowballs to have a fight with, unless it doesn’t snow.
I hope you have a great holiday season, whatever your religion is!
Christmas is my favorite holiday of all. You get presents, have fun, and you also get off of school. Bad things happen too; people steal gifts that are on the front porch that have been mailed. I love Christmas but why do we have Santa Claus. Who made him up and why? Is it even possible to cover the entire world in one night with flying reindeer? Why do you leave him cookies and milk on Christmas Eve when he is supposed to give you presents? Why is he fat? Is it because of the cookies and milk from every kid on earth? Why does he wear a red coat, does he have anything else? How does he know if your good or bad, does he have elves that stalk you? These are questions that I have that are about Santa Claus because we know nothing about him.
Sparkling lights covering everyone’s homes. Trees are decorated with delicate ornaments and bright lights. The Christmas smell fills the air. I hear children humming their favorite carols. Everywhere I look is covered in red and green. People dressed up to get into the sprit. I can’t wait for Christmas!
Cold, white, snowy, nights
Having a loving, laughing, family around you
Rough and tough wrapping paper to rip through
Interesting surprises with joyful faces come along
Safe and warm homes to stay
“Time to eat!” They always say
Making little snowman-shaped cookies with icing and sprinkles
All the long nights full of sleep
Saying goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring
