Câu chuyện: Santa’s Christmas

Thể hiện: Nguyễn Minh Châu, Lớp 12A2


It was a beautiful December day, with clear blue skies and snow-covered treetops. Christmas was in the air! But up in Santa’s lodge, all was quiet. The usual hustle and bustle of preparing Christmas presents was gone, for Santa had fallen ill.

“Oh dear, what will the children say when they don’t receive presents this year?” Santa wondered sadly, as he lay on his bed. Suddenly, he heard a noise from outside. He looked out of the window and saw his four reindeer standing patiently as usual. But they seemed quite out of breath, as if they had just finished a long trip. And as Santa took a closer look, he could not believe what he saw. For behind the reindeer was a long train of sleds, carrying little children dressed in all sorts of colors.

One by one, they hopped out onto the snow and headed towards Santa’s lodge. Soon came a knock on the door. “Come in!” Santa called out, for he was extremely curious. In came a little girl, hugging something soft in her arms. “I heard that you were sick, Mr. Santa,” she began. “So I’m giving you my teddy bear, to keep you company.” “Why, thank you little Emma!” said Santa, for he knew every child by name.

Then entered a young boy with a red package in his arms. “We knew that you were ill, Papa Santa,” he said. “So my family knitted this quilt for you, to keep you warm in the winter days.” “Why, what a wonderful thought Paul!” beamed Santa, patting him on the head.

And one by one the children came in through Santa’s door, each with a special gift to wish Santa well. There were cookies, pies, socks, mittens, books, jigsaw puzzles, and even a small Christmas tree! “Christmas delivered to my doorstep!” exclaimed Santa. “Come; let us all share these wonderful gifts.” And he gathered the children around him in a big circle. “Santa, which present do you like best?” Emma soon piped up. “My dear little ones,” Santa replied, smiling. “It is the love and kindness that each of you has shown me today that is the best present of all.” He looked fondly at all the eager faces around him. “This, my little ones, is the true meaning of Christmas.” And with that, Santa gave each of the children a big, warm holiday hug.
