Susanna Leonard Hill's 13th Annual Holiday Writing Contest

The Contest:  Write a maximum 250-word children’s holiday story (children here defined as age 12 and under) about a Holiday Countdown!

I decided to give this one a whirl. I usually only do the Halloweensie contest, but holidays stories are always so much fun. I started off with a 25 days till Christmas, but YIKES!!, too much to handle! Thank for the contest Susanna Hill!


By Thelia Hutchinson



Only 12 more days till Christmas, and I can hardly wait.

11 more days till Christmas Eve when Santa heads our way.

10 more days of wishful wishing on the Christmas star.

9 more days of wrapping gifts to give to one and all.

7 more days of carolers singing joyful Christmas songs.

6 more days of Christmas treats…pies and cakes, yum yum!

5 more nights till Christmas and I can hardly sleep.

4 more nights of staying up late, just to fall asleep.

3 more days to sneak a peek at gifts under the tree.

2 more days of hoping for some snow on Christmas Eve.

1 more night, it’s Christmas eve and Santa will soon be here.

Time for me to rush to sleep, for Christmas Day is near.  

Hooray! Hooray! The day is here… Christmas has arrived! 

And all that’s left are cookie crumbs and reindeer tracks…Oh my!

The tree is filled with lots of gifts… for each and everyone.

Let’s all rejoice and celebrate; cause Christmas has finally come!
