What's working for businesses in 2021?
Kids are always asked what they want for Christmas. Some even come up with ideas of their own to give to their parents. We thought we'd put some kids from Stephenville Primary School in Santa's place and ask them what they would have in their sack for their parents.
Question: If you were Santa, what would you give your mommy and daddy for Christmas?
- Grade 3
I would give my mom a garden all around the house, but not at the front door so they wouldn’t get stepped on. There would be a protective sheet so the flowers wouldn’t die in the winter.
- Grade 3
I would give dad a gold ball retriever in case he sees any balls in the water while he’s out golfing, and my mom a new pair of Crocs.
- Grade 2
I would give my parents a chance to come on the sleigh with me to travel all around the world.
I’d get them both new skis as they both like to ski a lot during the winter when the snow is down.
If I were Santa, what I’d get my mom and dad is a new car. I’m thinking a race car.
- Grade 1
I’d give them flowers, lots and lots of flowers because my mom loves them and had them in all the places we’ve lived: Belleoram, Pasadena, Kippens and now Stephenville.
