It was the night before Christmas and nothing was stirring not even a mouse.
Are you kidding it was mayhem in the Sasha house, everyone was so excited about Father Christmas coming, that poor Polly was having trouble trying to keep everyone calm, as she read, The Night Before Christmas.
Now says Polly “listen to this story and then it is off to bed otherwise Father Christmas will not visit you”
Polly began to read to the others, but a very excited Dot butted in and started chattering about what Father Christmas was going to bring her.
Right that’s it, says an exasperated Polly, “Christmas is not about Father Christmas bringing you presents. It is a special day to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.”
Please tell us says Marina
oh, yes please says Dot “I will be good and listen”
Ruth and Bam Bam
settled down comfortably and listened as Polly told them, the story of baby Jesus.
Once a long long time ago, some shepherd’s saw a bright star shining in the sky.
The shepherd’s decide to follow the star
Meanwhile in a little town called Nazareth, a lady called Mary and her husband called Joseph were travelling by donkey trying to find somewhere to stay for the night.
Every time they came to an Inn, it was full and Mary had been told that she was going to have a baby, who would be called Jesus and he would be the son of God, so they really needed somewhere to stay.
They came to another Inn and Joseph spoke to the Inn keeper
The Inn keeper had no room at the Inn, but he said that Mary and Joseph could stay in the barn with the animals
And it was there in that barn the little baby Jesus was born and Mary laid him in a manger for a bed.
The shepherd’s that had been following the star come to see the baby Jesus and so do the three wise men baring gifts of gold frankincense and Mir.
so you see Christmas is about celebrating the birth of baby Jesus, although it is also nice to receive Christmas presents from Father Christmas if you have been a good boy or girl.
so says Polly off you go to bed or Father Christmas will not come.
After everyone had gone to bed, Polly had a look around the room to make sure everything was in its place.
Now in the bedroom Dot and Bam Bam were trying hard to go to sleep.
Dot tells Bam Bam to go to sleep
Ok, night night Dot x
Just after Midnight presents start to appear in the bedroom and it looks like Father Christmas is delivering Dot and BamBam’s presents.
First Father Christmas checks they are asleep!
Ah , yes fast asleep, so time for Father Christmas to set to work.
Father Christmas is a little short this year so make good use of the parcels being delivered.
Final push and the presents are delivered
The fireplace looks good
Stockings in place.
Parcels under the tree
A good job done and now I can’t wait to see their faces in the morning.
