How do you celebrate Christmas?  Do you go to the mall? Do you cut down your own tree?  Do you make your own ornaments? Do you write a letter to Santa?  In this story a girl who lives with her grandparents will tell you how she celebrated Christmas in the country: her grandfather chopped down a tree, the girl and her grandmother got out the ornaments to decorate the tree,  she left cookies, milk and a note for Santa, attended church services, and celebrated with family and friends.  She tells about taking down the tree and looking forward to spring.  Read this story to see how your celebration compares to hers.  (Lois Stroud, South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
