What is the most important thing about Christmas for you?

Lily Pearle

Grade 2

C.C. Loughlin

I like that it comes every year and every child gets treated the same. No child gets missed by Santa. Actually, my favourite part of Christmas is I get tons of presents and I get to open them when I wake up Christmas morning.

 

Claire Edwards

Grade 2

Having a lot of presents to open up. I do it really fast.

 

 

Bella Connolly

Grade 2

C.C. Loughlin

Spending time with all my family and celebrating the birthday of Jesus.

 

 

Haylee Leroy

To be next to your family because you don’t need toys as much as you need your family.

 

 

Jackson Marshall

Family is the most important thing. Celebrating Christmas with your family … in Christmas we bring our family together and have Christmas dinner.

Family, friends and Jesus’ birthday is what’s most important about Christmas.

 

What do the elves do after Santa Claus delivers the presents and everything is made for the year?

 

 

Samuel Murray

Grade 3

Stephenville Primary

I think when Santa gets back from his deliveries the elves take a break for a week or two, then get back to making toys for the next Christmas.

 

 

Chase Brake

Grade 1

Stephenville Primary

After the presents are all gone, I think the elves have a big celebration with pizza, cake and sweets.

 

 

Cameron Gale

Grade 2

Stephenville Primary

I think they go back to making more presents right away for the next year because there are about a quadrillion kids in the world.

 

 

Sophie McIsaac

Kindergarten

Stephenville Primary

Well, I think the elves take a short time to relax and then they get to cleaning up the mess they made from where they were making all the toys.

 

 

Jordyn Benoit

Grade 1

Stephenville Primary

The elves take a good, long nap as it gets to be very tiring making all those toys for boys and girls around the world.

 

 

Stefan Butt

Grade 3

Stephenville Primary

I think the elves get together and have a big party once Santa gets back from his deliveries with hot chocolate and lots of sweets.

Grade 1

Super far away. You go a super long ways. When it’s Christmas Eve you could just make sure Santa doesn’t see you and you can wake up and sneak behind Santa. And when he’s going up the chimney you could hold on to his boot and then reappear up on the roof and sneak in his sleigh.

 

 

Noah Colbourne

I know where the North Pole is, I do. It’s 50 far away. In a rocket goes 50 miles.

Fifty kilometres away. On a plane.
