Happy Night Before Christmas:

When I was a kid my parents used to drive us around on Christmas Eve to look at all of the Christmas lights in the neighborhood.  It was a Christmas tradition.  In case you didn’t get to see the lights tonight, here are some for you to enjoy.

Thank You For Your Consideration,

I went to the mall to see Santa. I wanted to tell him that I was good all year and wanted a lot of toys. When I sat on his lap I did not ask for toys. I forgot about what I wanted and told Santa that a boy in my class needs new shoes. The kids are mean to him all of the time. He needs new shoes. I asked Santa to give him new shoes and give me toys next year. Santa please give him some new shoes so the kids will not be mean to him. I will still be a good boy anyway. Nicarrio – Niccarrio, 6
