TROLL FAMILY CHRISTMAS
written by Debbie Williamson
"Gee," said Troll Mother, putting the last parcel under the Christmas tree. "There's not much under the tree this year."
"I know," said Troll Daddy. "It looks pretty bare doesn't it. This Christmas is pretty bleak, I'm afraid."
"Well," said Troll Mother. "There's always Troll Santa."
"Yes," said Troll Daddy. "Without Troll Santa, our little trolls wouldn't be getting much for Christmas this year."
Troll Mother and Troll Daddy went to bed that Christmas Eve. Through the night, Troll Santa indeed visited the Troll Family's house and when he took a look at the few parcels under the tree, he felt really bad for the Troll family.
"I must do something really special this year," said Troll Santa. "This poor family hasn't much under their Christmas tree this year."
Troll Santa went back to his sleigh that was on top of the Troll family's roof.
"I remember that Troll Sister wanted a CD player," said Troll Santa, rooting through his bag of presents. "And Troll Brother wanted a new game console. I think Troll Baby wanted a new set of books to read."
Troll Santa took the extra gifts and set them down under the tree.
"Hello Troll Santa," said Troll Sister. "I see you are putting gifts under the tree for us."
"Well hello Troll Sister," said Troll Santa. "Why aren't you sleeping like all the other Troll boys and girls?"
"You were making so much noise up on the roof," explained Troll Sister. "I really couldn't sleep."
"Well," said Troll Santa. "I was rooting through my parcel bag to see if I could find some extra special gifts for your family."
"Why?" asked Troll Sister. "Is it because we are so poor this year?"
Troll Santa didn't know what to say about that.
"But it is true," said Troll Sister. "We are very poor this year. However, we are richer than other families in Troll Town."
"What makes you say that?" asked Troll Santa.
"Because our Troll Family has each other and we have love," said Troll Sister.
Troll Santa couldn't believe this little troll child and how lucky she really was.
"Well," said Troll Santa, wiping a tear from the corner of his eye. "You are really a special little girl."
