Dear Santa: Bring me A Twinkle Star - Part 1

English is my passion, I’m in love with this language since my childhood.Only way to write perfectly is to read, read and yet read again.




It is totally fiction story of a six years old little girl Isabella who was decorating her Christmas tree with her Mummy and little brother Adam.However, this Christmas, she wanted something new to make it best ever.So she wrote a letter to Christmas father, 'Santa Claus' to bring her 'A Twinkling Star from the Sky'.She wanted to hang this star on top of Christmas tree to make the tree more brighter and shiner.

Its a little innocent story of making a wish and learning of fulfilling other children's wishes as well, because Christmas is not all about decorating a tree,its much more an event of learning to open up your heart and make others happy.Only then you will get 'A twinkle Star' on Christmas which will not only brighten up your house but will shine at others' houses too.

With this idea, please join me as we enter into the world of Isabella who was preparing to make her Christmas very special.



Dear Santa: Bring me 'A Twinkle Star'.

"Adam,Adam,where are you?" Isabella screamed while standing at back door of her house.

But Adam didn't come,she came out in her garden and headed towards their doll's house at the very end of the garden, to have some fun with toys and was on some secret mission as well.Isabella approached her writing table straight away as she went in.

She took out her precious writing diary from the drawer.Her diary was a very precious thing to her, which she only used for some important letters.

Letters to her favourite Teacher Ms Perry,

Letters to her Mummy sometimes,

Letters to her best friends,

Letters to North pole in previous years.

And this time, she was writing another very important letter to Santa Claus.She had been writing letters before as well in Christmas, asking Santa Claus for chocolates, a winter Snowman, a roller coaster, and much more.But this time, she wanted something more valued.

She always admired twinkle stars on the sky.They looked so dazzling and sparkly.She just wanted to hold stars in her hand, to touch their light, to feel their warmth.The stars looked like little diamonds on dark sky, so magical to see, their brightness was so sparkling.

She loved singing this rhyme all the time.

"Twinkle Twinkle little star,

how I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky,

Twinkle Twinkle little star,

how I wonder what you are."

"How a twinkle star shines so brightly?" , was always a mystery to Isabella.Sometimes, she thought, may be its a star's job to shine brighter, or may be, God has given it some special powers.She tried many times to ask her mummy who always used to explain to her that every star once was a human being like us.

"Whoever does good deeds in this world,becomes a dazzling star to shine on the sky after he dies," Isabella's Mummy always told her.

"Well, I do good to my friends, I listen to my Mummy and Dada,I am very helpful to my teachers. So I would be a bright star," Isabella used to say with flashing light in her eyes.

"Oh, yes, of course darling, you are a little bright star, and Mummy loves you so much," Isabella's mother admired her on this all the time.

She always dreamed for a star fairy to come, and to take her far away in the sky, where she could see and touch those shining stars closely.Christmas was a best time for her dream to come true.She knew Christmas father can get Isabella anything she wanted.

"What about 'A Twinkle Star' this time," Isabella thought and smiled.



With this idea,she sat one her little wooden chair and started writing her letter to Santa Claus.

"Hello Dear Santa,

My name is Isabella William.

I am six years old.I live quite far from North Pole.

You already know my house.I have been good all year.

Whatever bad I did,my brother made me doing.

So I am really sorry.I hope you understand.

I have been thinking of what I would like this Christmas.

And I've decided that on this Christmas, I want a very special gift, Please must bring me.

I promise, I will be nice in coming year. But I want this gift.

Please bring 'A Twinkle Star' of sky.I'll be very thankful to ya.

I am very excited for 'A Twinkle Star' on Christmas Eve.

Please don't disappoint, I know you won't.

Mummy says,"Santa can get you anything."

I am looking forward for you visit on Christmas Eve and I'll leave some cookies for you and your reindeer near Christmas tree, I hope you'd love cookies.

You are my best friend ever and I love ya so much.

Thank you so much.

With Love,"

Isabella William.

Writing letters to Santa Claus.



After finishing her letter,Isabella took out an envelope, slipped the letter inside, and sealed it with a red sticker on.She heard her mummy's voice calling for her.So, she quickly placed the letter inside the drawer of her table and hurried back to her mom.

It was dinner time, Adam was already there.Isabella washed her hands and sat for supper.

"Where were you Isabella?" mummy asked.

"Ammmmm, I was in my doll's house mummy," Isabella replied.

"What were you doing there for so long?" her mummy asked in angry sound.

"I was writing a letter to Santa Claus for my gift on this Christmas," Isabella's eyes sparkled with her answer.

"Oh okay,sounds exciting, what do you want this time my little princess?" her mummy asked in relaxing tone.

"Well something very precious,I am not going to tell ya mom, you will see on Christmas Eve," Isabella replied with smiley face.

"Very well dear,I am sure, Santa will get ya whatever you have asked for," her mummy assured Isabella.

Next day, Isabella went to buy Christmas tree with her mummy.Kids were very excited when they placed the tree in their living room.They were going to decorate it in coming days.

Though Isabella kept on thinking about Twinkle Star all the time.She couldn't wait for the day when she would see 'A Bright Twinkle Star' on her Christmas tree which would shine all her house up.

Dear Santa:Bring me A Twinkle Star - Part 2

Few days later, Isabella went to American Red Cross with her mummy to give Christmas gifts to the poor children.She also went to church on Sunday morning with her mummy where Isabella learnt the actual message of Christmas.
