3th of December
“Mum, can you help me with my wish list?”, asked Anabell Buttercup, while her little sister yelled, “Me too, please!”
The girls took place and showed their mother their colorful wish lists. Elizabeth had drawn many stars on to her paper, while Anabell had decorated it with a Christmas tree.
“You’ve done a wonderful job! I’m sure the Christkind (An explanation follows under the story)will love it!”, said Daisy proudly and kissed her both daughters, “Where’s Paddock? Doesn’t he want to come to us?”
“He told me that his wish list should be a secret!”, Anabell shook her head, “I don’t have any idea what he could want to have, what we shouldn’t know about…”
Her mother giggled, “Well, we will for sure find out!” She looked at the papers in front of her, “What do you want to write first?”
“A rocking horse!”, said Elizabeth proudly, “I want to be a cowboy!”
“Ok, my dear. Let me take your hand.” Carefully she laid her fingers around the small hand of her youngest and helped writing Elizabeth’s first wish.
Now it was Anabell’s time, she wanted to get a new doll. Daisy didn’t have to help her writing, but she told her the right letters. Devotional she wrote down the four letters. “Thank you, mum!”
“It’s my pleasure!”
Together Daisy and her daughters added more items to the lists, until they were finished.
“Oh hello, look who’s there!”, Daisy blinked. Paddock yelled: “Please don’t look at my wish list! It’s a secret!”
“Don’t worry, dear. We promise to not look at your wish list.”
Paddock calmed down and sat next to his sisters, “Okay, do you think the Christkind will fetch our wish lists this evening?”
“Maybe.”, his mother said, “But we just have to wait. The Christkind has a lot to do.”
“Because she must collect all wish lists from all children of the world!”, answered Daisy, “That needs a long time.”
Elizabeth and Anabell placed their lists also on the window bench. Now it was time to wait.
From time to time the children took a look at the bench, but the wish lists were still there. When Daisy brought them into bed, Elizabeth asked: “But what is when the Christkind doesn’t come?”
Tranquilised the children fell asleep.
The "Christkind" is the traditional German gift bringer at Christmas Eve, you can imagine her like an angel. We also have someone like Santa Claus, called St. Nicholas. But he comes at the 6th of December. He also have presents, but those are normally just little ones. For example a book and some gingerbread. You will read about him at the 6th :)
But somehow the Christkind is disappearing here - Santa Claus is taking over :D. But because I grew up with the Christkind I thought that Marigold Creek can also have a Christkind^^.
