With Christmas quickly approaching, many children all over our area have been preparing their Christmas wish list for Santa.
Turn on the radio or go into many businesses, and you will hear Christmas music playing.
Each and every day that passes, nets us closer to the Christmas holiday.
In this week’s edition of Word on the Street, we at the State Gazette enlisted the help of the 1st – 5th-grade Student of the Month representatives at Finley Elementary.
In honor of the upcoming holiday season, we asked the students what was the one item they wanted most for Christmas and what is their all-time favorite Christmas song.
Presley Eddlemon, 1st grade
“What I want for Christmas is a Hatchimal, and my favorite [Christmas] song is ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.’”
Lauren Tharpe, 2nd grade
“I want a Hatchimal, too, but my favorite Christmas song is ‘Jingle Bells.’”
Landon Burns, 3rd grade
“The biggest gift I want is a new Xbox One, and ‘Deck The Halls’ is my favorite Christmas song.”
Lottie Hollingsworth, 4th grade
“For Christmas, I want a four-wheeler. My favorite Christmas song is ‘Jingle Bells.’”
Landon Knowlton, 5th grade
“I want a new football for Christmas, and my favorite [Christmas] song is ‘Jingle Bells.’”
