My Best Christmas
Shauna O’Rourke was 4 and lived with her family in Tipperary. She loved family parties, but most of all Christmas was by far the best. Every day she marked off the days slowly but surely leading up to the big day. This year was going to be special as Shauna was going to her first Christmas Pantomime.
Christmas holidays were always a magical time of the year in Nenagh. There was always great excitement and preparation in the house! She had spent a long time writing her letter to Santa before she sent it to Lapland. Shauna had tried so hard to be good this year! She begged Santa to bring her everything she had wished for. She couldn’t believe it when she received a reply from Santa and his elves!
Christmas shopping was always an exciting time for Shauna. Even though she hadn’t a lot of money she loved buying presents for her family. The streets and shops were all lit up with Christmas lights. The sound of carol singers echoed loudly through the streets. Shauna was so busy looking in the shop windows she nearly lost sight of her mother.
Shauna had just got home from town after the big Christmas shop and began to finish decorating the house. They all helped to put the ornaments and lights on the tree. Shauna wrapped and put all her presents neatly underneath. It was Shauna’s job to put the angel on top of the Christmas tree. Shauna knew that 2019 was going to be a special Christmas.
Early next morning she heard the postman ring the bell. The postman asked “Does a Shauna O’Rourke live here? “Yes, yes I’m here” roared Shauna as she leapt out of bed. Shauna was eager to see what was inside the big box but her mother said she had to wait until Christmas morning! The parcel was really heavy, the magic of Christmas was building.
“Can I bring it up to my room?” said Shauna. This was followed by a stern warning not to open it until the next morning. Mam spent all that day cooking and baking while Shauna helped her dad with the outdoor lights. There was visitors calling all day long, the ground was covered in snow!
At last it was time to go to bed. T’was the night before Christmas. Shauna made sure to leave out milk and cookies for Santa and some carrots for Rudolph and his friends. Shauna’s Christmas stocking was hanging up on the end of her bed. She warned her parents to be in bed before Santa arrived. Shauna listened out for Santa, as Ella heard him last year
Shauna woke suddenly thinking she had heard something. She rushed into the living room to find all the presents. She screamed with joy and woke the whole house. Her mother told her to go back to bed as it was only 5:30 am. Bed was the last thing on Shauna’s mind. Shauna opened the box in her room, to find a giant box of Cadbury’s Roses. She couldn’t wait to dive in and try every chocolate!
Shauna put on her new clothes. She was very slow to leave her new toys and games. It was 8 o’clock and Shauna had just finished half a tin of roses and a selection box and was feeling fairly full going to church. She couldn’t wait to get to mass to meet her friends and to enjoy the singing of the different Christmas carols. As mass ended the snow was falling heavily.
Shauna would have loved to make snowballs to throw at Ella but her mother had other ideas. “LATER” she said as she didn’t want her ruining her new clothes. In the car on the way home Dad tried to find a shop that was open to buy batteries. After Christmas dinner Shauna and Ella made a snowman. It was getting dark and everybody sat around the fire and watched a Christmas Movie. This was the best Christmas Shauna had ever had and wished it could start all over again
