What Christmas Means to Me

Fourth grader Noah Voegle won our "What Christmas Means to Me" writing competition. Here is his paper:

"Christmas is Jesus' birth. Christmas is where we celebrate with family and friends and presents but most of all celebrating Jesus' birth. It's fine to love presents and have the best tree but we need to remember the first Christmas. We need to celebrate c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-e hohoho we are gonna celebrate and we will should hip-hip hurray for Jesus' birth.
I love being with friends and family, but you're never alone. I love Christmas because we get presents and you get to decorate a tree but also celebrating the birth of Jesus. I love school at Christmas because it is out for tow weeks. I love opening and giving presents."
