Matthew Thornton Elementary, Londonderry “On Christmas my favorite thing to do is open my presents. I really want to see Santa, too. I always wake up on the middle of the night and I sometimes want to go downstairs to see Santa so I can hug him. I try and I try. Last year it was the middle of the night and I saw presents.”

Windham Cooperative School “I like to open presents and open stockings and mine is a koala stocking. We decorate the tree and make gingerbread cookies, but we don’t leave any for Santa as it’s too close. We make him chocolate chip cookies. I also want a stuffed hedgehog. We are doing a play at school and I’m a hedgehog.”
