Christmas had me on pins and needles but I knew Santa Claus was just a few days away from my house. Finally, Christmas Eve arrived and I jumped into bed. Soon I was sound asleep with dreams of toys and candy. Suddenly, I was awaken with stamping feet and jingling sleigh bells. I leaped from my bed and raced downstairs just in time to see a man in a red suit with toys on his back dash out the back door. In the distance, I heard sleigh bells jingle again. "Wow! It was Santa Claus." I was right. I couldn't wait to tell my unbelieving friends!
I shouted to my mother and sister, "I told you, I told You, Santa Claus would come!" Soon my father and brother ran in. "What is all the commotion?" said my dad. My brother looked flushed and asked, "What is the matter with you?" I jumped up and down. I asked them, "Did you see Santa?" With a whimsically look and nod, my father and brother said they had seen him too. I had seen Santa--nothing else mattered this Christmas. This was my very best Christmas, ever!
Little did I know my father dressed up as Santa and my brother was the sleigh bell master. As I danced into the New Year, Santa Claus was alive and well--at least for another year!
