The following story is one written by Jason Lynch, from Muff, who attends The WRITE STUFF Kids Club at Muff, Co. Donegal. Jason used a spare five minutes on his last session with the prompt, ‘On Christmas Eve’. His result is a lovely Christmas Eve story.
On Christmas Eve, at 10 o’clock, me and my brother went to bed. We talked for a while and then we fell asleep. When the twelve bells rang I woke up and heard something on the roof. I didn’t know what it was, so I got out of my bed and put on my shoes. I went outside. I looked up at the roof and I saw a sleigh with twelve reindeer. But Santa wasn’t in the sleigh.
I decided to go into the house, and there in front of me was Santa. He was wearing a red suit and big black boots. He said ‘Merry Christmas’ and then he disappeared.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. I ran over to the door and I heard jingle bells and Santa’s sleigh flew over my house and away they went.
That was the best Christmas Eve ever!
