A view of Christmas After sixth graders at Corpus Christi School, Evansville, were given the assignment of writing descriptively about Christmas, two students' works were published in the school newsletter. Getting ready for Christmas is fun, but sometimes can be stress- ful. You can smell the delicious smell of cookies and the sweet "smell of sweet sugary candy. Children are running around ex- citedly, and singing joyfully. People are putting up pleasant decorations including green and red lights on the outside of their house. When you look out the window you can see cold, wet snow falling to the frozen ground. Children are building big and small snowmen. They are also throwing cold, wet snow- balls at each other. Mothers and Fathers are wrapping presents. Families are hanging their stock- ings. The children put out cold milk and cookies for Santa. You should also remember Christmas is not only a time for presents and decorations but also it is the day Jesus is born. Terra Goedde Getting ready for Christmas is an exciting thing. Our family usually picks out a tree and sets up decorations a couple of weeks before Christmas. I think Christ- mas is the most peaceful and re- membering time of the year. I love the sweet smell of pine and the delicious taste of fresh home- made cookies. I like when the burning fire warms my skin. On Christmas I usually see glowing candles and shiny wrapping paper. Everyone has a cheerful smile or laughing faces with a happiness of joy inside. Christ- mas is not just a time of presents, food and decorating. It is the day when Jesus was born. We should remember that this day is espe- cially made for the birth of Jesus. ............... arah ay.
