The snowflakes glisten
The children listen
For Santa on his sleigh
Church bells are ringing
The choir is singing
On this Christmas night
The Christmas tree
Stands dressed in gold
Sparkling and bold
White carpets of snow
Lay all of aglow
The stars sparkle bright
On this Christmas night
The mince pies are out
Next to the pint of stout
Awaiting Santa Claus
On this cold winters night
As children wait
For the night to unfold
When all of their dreams
Will turn to gold
Santa was very worried at the North Pole
For all his toys were made ready that night
But his reindeers were not happy
So they all decided to strike
Santa had a meeting with his reindeers
Dressed in his Santa’s suit
Now come on tell me
The reason for this dispute
Well said” Rudolph we are fed up pulling your sleigh”
For it gets heavy year after year
So we are not pulling you sleigh to night
All the reindeers gave out a loud cheer
Santa said what about the children
They will have no toys on Christmas Eve
Santa was very sad and disappointed
As he turned away to leave
Then he heard his elves and reindeers laughing
As Santa walked slowly away
Santa turned round to see what was happening
To see his reindeers ready in his sleigh
Santa was now very happy
Together they all took flight
Knowing that the children of the world
Would be receiving their toys that night
The Kids had just got off the buss at South Fork.
Everyone discussing what their plans were for Christmas.
All were getting excited talking about what they were wishing for come Christmas.
One Of the younger girls that had just been listening to th older kids,said I will be happy with what ever Santa Claus brings me.
An older boy named John said to her you don’t really believe in Santa Claus do you?
John’s Sister Mary said Honey there is no Santa Claus.
Within a few seconds four or five of the older Kids came to her and told her not to believe them,ofcourse there is a Santa Claus.
One at a time they began to relate to her telling her how Santa came to their house every Christmas.
After wipping a few tears from her cheeks she smiled and said I know there is a Santa Claus.
All the Kids just turned and looked at John and Mary as they walked away.
everyone began saying Bye and going to their own homes.
It was Still six days untill Christmas and everyone was buisy doing last minute shopping and preparing for Christmas.
Most of the kids still found time for fun and games.
John and Mary was very popular with all the Kids.
The fact that they didn’t believe in Santa Claus had no effect on their relationship with their friends on South Fork.
Two Days now untill Christmas and Clouds had gathered over head and a cool breeze was starting to blow and a few Snow Flakes were beginning to fall.
All over South Fork you could hear and see kids running and yelling trying to catch a few of the first snow Flakes.
Everyone was getting excited about having a white Christmas.
Only one day now untill Christmas Eve. with all the lights turned on every house every mobile home each adorned with all the beautiful lights,images of Angels, Crosses and Santa his Sleigh and Reindeers.
By the time it got dark South Fork Litup Like a hughe Christmas Tree.
Snow had now began to fall hard and faster everyone was sure now of having a white Christmas. Christmas Eve. and five or six inches of snow was on the ground and all the trees covered with a beautiful glistening white coat.
South Fork had become a beautiful wonder Land
All the kids were out enjoying an amazing Christmas Eve. on South Fork. As soon as it started getting dark most of the smaller kids had started going home so they could get to bed early and get to sleep so Santa could come.
John and Mary were the last to go home afterall there was no need for them to rush they didn’t believe in Santa Claus anyway.
By Midnight almost every kid on South Fork was tucked in bed many allready dreaming of Christmas morning.
That is except John and Mary they were still up and were talking about how all their friends still believed in Santa Claus.
When John and Mary finally went upstairs and went to bed it was only a few minutes and they were both sound asleep and both slept straight through the night.
Early christmas morning they both awoke to the sound of their Mothers voice at the foot of the stairs, getup kids breakfast is almost ready. They both jumped put on their Robes and met at the top of the stairs.
Even though they didn’t believe in Santa Claus they both knew there would be Presents under the tree for them.
They ran down the stairs and to the living room where the Christmas tree always were the room was dark John turned the lights on there was no Tree and no presents, they looked at each other and yelled Mom Dad where is the Christmas Tree? Where is our Presents? Mom was in the Kitchen they came in yelling Mom where is our Christmas tree and Presents.
Mom just looked at them and said what Christmas Tree and Presents? They ran back to the living room all they saw was an empty room.
They could hear voices outside Children running playing they went out on their front porch everywhere the looked they could see Children a little boy on his trycycle a little girl talking to her Doll,another on roller skates a boy and girl side by side on their bycycles. John and Mary walked to the road the kids began yelling to them look what Santa brought us. Many were asking what did Santa bring you?
All they could do was just stand there and watch while all the other children had all the fun and so went Christmas morning for John and Mary. soon the kids began returning to their homes Christmas was almost over as John and Mary walked slowly to their house Mary looked at John and ask when did you stop beleaving in Santa Clause? John just kinda shrugged his shoulders and said and you? After a few moments of silence Mary said do you think there could be a Santa Claus?
John said Nah; afterall he didn’t bring us anything. Mary answered maby thats why because we don’t believe in him. Yew could be is all John said as they entered their house.
After Dinner and a little TV. John and Mary decided to go to their rooms and listen to some music at the top of the stairs they said good night and went to their rooms.
Morning came and they both awoke to the sound of their Mom’s voice at the foot of the stairs are you two going to sleep all day.
In a few moments Mary was knocking on john’s door John ask her to come on in she said John I had the funniest Dream last night I dreamed I heard bells ringing on the roof right above my bed room. John said if you think that’s crazy I dreamed that someone upon the roof was yelling Merry Christmas to All.
Mary said oho well we had better get down stairs before Mom gets mad so they raced down the stairs Mom was standing at the livingroom door she motioned to them and said come on you two it is getting late they followed Mom into the living room.
They both stopped and their eyes almost popped out of their heads. Yhere in the corner was their beautiful Christmas Tree and beneath it were piles of beautiful wrapped boxes. They looked at eachother and then at their Mom and Dad.
Mom and Dad both were holding beautiful wrapped boxes in their hands. Mom handed hers to Mary and Dad handed his to John and said these are from your Mom and I, Merry Christmas!
After opening their presents from their Mom and Dad they ask who’s presents are those under the Tree.
After a closer look either John or Mary’s name was on all the packages. After all the packages were opened they both realized that every thing they had been wishing for all year was under the Tree. Then Mom noticed a plate of cookies on a small table she looked at the Kids and ask Did you two leave those cookies for Santa Claus? John and Mary looked at each other and said NOoo. Mom said wait there is a note here and she began to read it. Here are some extra cookies the Kids gave me more than I can eat Merry Christmas. Then it began to dawn on Mary and John that up untill this morning everything was just a dream untill they heard the Sleigh bells and the yelling of Merry Christmas to all from the roof top.
And that is when John and Mary started Believing in Santa Clause.
This is a story I told My two little Grandaughters.In the Conclusion I told them. Yes I believe in Santa Clause and always will because believeing in Santa Clause is more than getting Presents on Christmas morning more than a jolly little man in a Red and White Suit and Sleighs and Reindeers.
Its having Faith and Believing in something that you can look forward to. It’s being able to wish and believe it will come true.
It’s having Hope that there is something good coming your way.
Believing in Santa Claus is believing that dreams do come true.
To Me saying I don’t believe in Santa Claus would be like saying I nolonger Have faith or Hope or the desire to Wish and nolonger have a Dream. Yes for Me there will always be a “SANTA CLAUS”
As softly falling lace shaped flakes,
soundlessly cover the ground with white,
The world becomes blanketed in silence,
making all things impossible appear possible.
Staring out through a flurry of snowflakes,
mentally I check off, my life’s blessings.
Family, friends, warm place upon which to lay my head,
one wish, one desire consumes my mind.
Should THIS wish come true, life would be complete,
have purpose, meaning for me.
Santa, should you peruse this poem,
know it isn’t riches or material things requested of you.
My Christmas wish, is to become bestowed with a lifelong role;
of motherhood; which has eluded me this year.
This is my desire to fulfill for Christmas,
as the cold geometrical flakes descend upon me.
The season of Christmas sparks magic in the air,
creating unbelievable miracles for all.
Requiring a minuscule amount;
of Christmas magic bestowed on me, I hope with open heart and mind.
Believing in the wonder of what may be,
we are destined for amazing things.
If granted this wish; this magnificent chance;
to mold another’s life, to make a difference in the world,
Then my Christmas wish will become reality.
Eternally grateful I remain,
forever a believer of good things to come!

As Santa prepared for Christmas
Putting all the toys in his sack
As he lifted the toys on his sleigh
It was then that he hurt his back
He went to the front of his sleigh
To make sure Rudolph had a shiny nose
It was then one the reindeers
Stood on one of Santa’s toes
Santa laughed it off as quite funny
As he hobbled back to his sleigh
Just as he was about to get in
The reindeer rose up and flew away
Santa by this time was angry
And took it out on Snowman Pete
Santa pushed Snowman Pete over
Ending up in a very large heap
It was then that Santa realized
As he awoke from his bed that night
For he had experienced a terrible nightmare
Giving Santa a horrible fright
So Santa was not so clumsy
At last Santa was on his way
All the toys were delivered
To the children on Christmas Day
