Advent Calendar: 3th of December

3th of December


“Mum, can you help me with my wish list?”, asked Anabell Buttercup, while her little sister yelled, “Me too, please!”

“Of course.”, Daisy smiled and put away the dishes, so they had enough space on the table.

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.
At this moment Paddock sneaked into the kitchen and placed his wish list at the window bench.

“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.”
Elizabeth looked with huge eyes to her mother, “Why?”

“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?”
“Don’t worry, I’ve never heard that the Christkind forget a child.”

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^^.

Yours Kyra


  1. This is really sweet! Giggled alot about Elizabeth's rocking horse! Wonder what is on Paddock's list.

    1. Hmh... I think we will find out! Thank you so much EB! :)

  2. Such a great story! So sweet, and all the children are so cute :D :D Have they written letters to St Nicholas as well? Or do you not write letters to him? :) This cheered up my morning (I'm at home, sick, again >:0)

    1. :D thank you so much! No, just to the Christkind. St. Nicholas has a golden book, where all things are written, but you'll find out more at the 6th :). I'm so sorry to hear that you're still ill :(

    2. My pleasure :D Ah, okay :) That is a cool tradition, I can't wait to find out more! XD Thank you :)

  3. This is a very cute story! I want to write a wishlist for the christkind too! ;)

    1. Thank you very much! I'm sure you can still write to her :D ;)

  4. Such a sweet story :) I love that you had it with the cows, they are one of my favorite families. I really want to know just what's on Paddocks list...!

    1. They're one of my favourites too :D. They are so sweet when they interact. Thank you Julia :)

  5. Yay! I love your stories! I am going to post my first one on saturday (1st of december) and skip all the other numbers to monday (8th) =( But then I will post all the other days ASWELL as the trunk holiday story somehow.

    1. Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoy them! :). Oh that sounds awesome, can't wait to read your stories! :)

  6. This is adorable! Wish lists are a very important part of Christmas. I wonder whether the Christkind will collect the lists tonight...

  7. The Christkind sounds like a fun tradition! Teehee why did Paddock want to keep his wishlist a secret?? Hmmm... Lovely story, I do hope the Christkind picks up their lists soon, but with all the Sylvanians in the world to do it may take a while. ;)

  8. Interesting tradition. They are lucky to have their Christkind. Kids' wishlist sounds so innocent. It makes me smile.

  9. Nice to see you're sharing information about German Christmas traditions :) I have heard of St. Nicholaus, but Christkind is new to me. (Sorry I have been busy and haven't read your wonderful stories.)
