  • Ellie Hanson Sweet Friend (M. Bonis)

    I look out the window as the snowflakes fall gently, creating a softblanket of untouched snow. Its Christmas Eve, and Im waiting for Santa to come. I hear jingle bells, but then realize that they are just from the carolers passing by. After watching and waiting for Santa, I finally fall asleep at the window. In my dreams, I imagine my grandmas tree, with presents stacked all around, and all of the delicious foods and desserts we will have. I wake up, to go to sleep in my bed, and just as I drift off, I swear that I see the silhouette of Santa and his reindeer, and hear a quiet Ho Ho Ho in the distance
