Christmas from a second grader perspective

The Icon asked second graders in Bev Stockman's class what they think of when then think of Christmas. Here are their responses.

We have a lot of stuff to do in my house for Christmas. I love to see all kinds of things. I like to see the tree sparkle. I like to hear lots of bells. I like to smell pies and cakes. I like to taste cookies and strawberries. I like it feel snow and Santa's beard. I know Santa and I'll get presents. Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year.
