Christmas Day – Jack (aged 10)

ChristmasOne snowy Christmas morning at her uncle’s farm a young girl called Karen felt magic in the air as she watched her cousins opening their presents.  The adopted ten-year-old girl had never before spent Christmas with a family of her own because her parents were killed in a warzone and her uncle and aunt didn’t even know she existed until two months before.  All Christmas day, Karen hoped that someone would remember to give her a gift but all she really wanted to do was spend the day with her new family.  After lunch her uncle and aunt asked her to go outside where she saw a pink and yellow float arrive and a beautiful pony trotted out. “Happy Christmas Karen,” exclaimed her uncle and aunt.

The Elf’s Journey – Steffi (aged 9)

elfIn the North Pole just before Christmas, the eves were busy wrapping presents for big and small children.  The smallest elf worked very hard like all the others but he could stretch so that he could stack the highest presents on the very top of the gift mountain.  One day he stretched so high, he reached up out of the factory where he saw the world and was interested to find out more.  He packed his bags, took a reindeer and sped off across the ice, over the mountains until he reached the edge of Greenland.  Instantly he missed all the other elves and wondered if they were thinking about him too.
