  4. 4. In front of the hearth In a month is the most important family celebrations- Christmas Eve and Christmas Night. The family sits cozily in front of the hearth. When we are together we are happy. Love and warmth fill our hearts. In my mind I’m wishing about my family- to be together, to love and to forgive. I wish health and happiness for many years on. Then I’m wishing about the world- to be better, no wars and misery. People to be kinder to each other, more understanding and happy. Then, Christmas fire glistens in my eyes and I fell that my wishes are becoming true and every person and creature hear my appeal to a better world. Plamena Peeva, 4 th grade

Here the children expected Santa C laus. </li></ul><ul><li>Where is Santa C laus? - Ask children here. - He is very sick and we are working instead of him - answer ed we . In Russia children expected Ded Moroz. It received the same questions and gave the same answer. In a small house but a little girl lived with her grandmother. I asked him: - Why not send a letter of Ded Moroz? She replied: - I am blind and I could not write his letter. We were very sad about this kid. Our mission is completed and we returned to Santa Claus. It has already been recovered. The tale of adventure in all that moved, and for sick children in Russia who could not get a gift because it is blind. He said: - Thank you baby and to you Alien from the Moon. Now I can stand up from this bed and with Snow-white to give gifts to other children around the world. I will go to bring a gift to a sick child in Russia.
