I like Santa and he will give us many presents. The Christmas tree is for good wishes.

My picture is of reindeer roaming around in the mountains during winter.
Celina Ren, 9, China
I painted this picture because I like winter and mountains! The road is for more people to drive on and see all the beautiful things around them.
Angel Wang, 10, China
My favorite holiday is Christmas! I wish I could have my own house in the forest to see sunrise together with my family.
Sarah Zhang, 10, Canada
In winter, it will snow and be Christmas time. There will be presents under the Christmas tree.
Briana Berry, 10, US
I painted Minnie Mouse at a party with a pink Santa hat and a colorful background.
Kylee Campbell, 11, Canada
This reminds me of my home in Canada. We had the same gray walls and we would make cookies and hot cocoa for ourselves and Santa.
Emily Xu, 10, China
Christmas is a jolly holiday; even snowmen and penguins enjoy the season.
David Yang, 10, China
There is a table full of presents beside Santa and a cozy house in the background.
Simba Li, 10, China
In the new century, Santa Claus has an airplane to bring presents to kids. I don’t think Santa Claus can fly to China with deer, so I want to give him an airplane.
