Santa got stuck in a chimney

It was Christmas night and I heard a rumble in the living room, so I woke up and I was scared. I waddled over to the door. Nobody was there so I flopped back to my door. I heard, “Help, Help!” from a strange voice. It was coming from the chimney! I raced downstairs, woke up my mom and dad and my sister. We all ran over to the chimney. “It’s Santa!” shouted my sister.

So I tugged on Santa with all of my might but I just couldn’t get him out. So, my sister grabbed my legs and pulled. We couldn’t get him out. So, my mom and dad tugged on my sister’s feet. That did not work. So, 15 chickens tried to get Santa out. It didn’t work. Santa got mad at those 15 chickens. So we got 13 birds but their wings didn’t work. They were too small. So, we got Rudolph. He tried but it just didn’t work. He felt sorry for Santa. Rudolph didn’t work so we got Santa’s elves. They pulled with all of their might but he was too hard to get out. Some of Santa’s elves even got fired. The elves were not a big help. Well, the elves did not work. So, we got 10 elephants and they tried with their noses. They pulled as hard as they could but didn’t make it.

So then all of us pulled and Santa broke free and he delivered presents to all the good boys and girls, even me!

My favourite part of Christmas is putting the star on top of the tree. This is a job reserved just for me. I do it in the evening before Christmas day. My brother Raine lifts me up so high. Then I wobble so much as I reach for the tree. I feel like I’m going to fall. I barely touch the ground but Raine catches me. Good thing I have a brother. After all of this a star hops on the tree. This is my favourite part of the year because I can go so high putting the star up on the tree.


Santa at the North Pole

By Kaiden Greene
Edgehill Elementary School

Santa was at the parade. There were lots of kids and Santa was saying “Ho, ho, ho.” The next day Santa was getting ready for the North Pole. Goodbye Santa! He said come on elves, you need to get the presents into the sleigh, Rudolph is waiting for you. The problem was Santa had lost his list and Mrs Claus was going to look for it.

At Winter Wonderland people were skating very fast. Later on they headed off to the concert where the young kids sang Jingle Bells five times.

The elves were putting their presents into the sleigh. The snow was very cold in winter and the ice was very slippery. That night Santa gathered the tree. He needed a sleigh bell for the trip.

The presents were wrapped but they were missing their stockings. The Christmas lights were on for Santa and it was time to get to bed.

Santa was going to go down the chimney to put the presents by the tree and said, “Hey, their stockings are not hanging up!” Santa made them to surprise the family when they woke up on Christmas morning. Santa made a good gift for everyone even without his list.


Peace in my heart

By Makaia Chesney

I have peace in my soul far away from the town.

All the decorations around the town for Christmas.

All the places I go, Christmas makes me happy.

The road goes by, the road goes by far from the town you see.

Christmas is so great everyone should see in their soul.

I have peace in my heart.

Everyone should know that.
