    Mohan,

    When I was writing I could see Dr Rao used HA and thus I skipped to P. Any way here is the content.

    All the people would gather for the mid night mass on the Christmas day and also on the new year day as the children would be busy in collecting gifts from Santas.

    Peter, a little boy was waiting in the queue for his turn to see Santa Claus at the Church wherein children would be allowed to sit on the lap of Santa, get a chocolate candy to eat, parents would take a picture and last but not the least Santa would give each and every child a lovely gift that Peter always looked forward to.

    Peter got his lovely gift from Santa and came running to his friend Padmanabha and said,"Look at this gift. My Santa gave me." and Padmanabha asked,"Who is Santa and what is Santa?"

    Yielding to his demands, Peter took Padmanabha back into the Church, stood in the line waiting to meet Santa and by the time their turn came, Peter had given a simple explanation about Santa and the Christmas festival which amazed Padmanabha.

  • #620320
    Catching a gift from Santa gave a lot of enthusiasm to Padmanabha and after thanking his friend for explaining Santa ran home to show the gift and explain to them about his experience in receiving the gift.

    @ Member, Natarajan,
    You slipped. The 24 sentence story is with the alphabets in "Happy Christmas and New year'.

    @ Dr. Rao, you followed the way of Natarajan.

    Natarajan, Kindly get back to 'Y', And Dr. Rao, get back to 'C'
