How the Sneetches Ate Christmas

It was three nights before Christmas Eve. All through a perfect town not even a pet peeve.

 

The three little sneetches were out and about. With very big bellies and very long snouts.

 

One red, one green, one blue, all not knowing what to do. They wanted to cause trouble and make the ground rumble.

They left their cave ontop of the mountain, passed sodapop

 

fountain, and went to the town of zuckerberg. Coming through the town stumbling and tumbling.

 

Making the people and houses shiver with fear. The sneetches were very near.

 

 

The town's christmas tree got closer and closer.

 

The sneetches became more and more excited. Each one got more delighted.

 

They went up to the tree staring at it.

 

Admiring every single last bit. But they all knew it had to go.

 

 

 

They started to climb it in the winter snow.

 

Finally they reached the top and “crunch” “crunch” they all munched

 

down the golden star atop.

 

All of them were happy with glee.

 

At the top of the christmas tree.

 

The sneetches were like a dog being let free.

 

With the sight of an hawk they started to gawk.

That night they were so hungry they can

 

eat a whale.

 

A sudden sound came from their stomach as

 

if there were a lion roaring inside them.



“Gobble” “Gobble” The sneetches ate all of

 

the christmas decorations.

 

Trying to satisfy all their stomachs.

 

They sat on their buttucks, eating away

 

the christmas tree.

 

They finished eating the tree but, were

 

still all too much hungry.

 

They looked and looked but nowhere to

 

be seen was anymore food, ready to be eaten.

The sneetches walked out of town with

 

overeaten bellies.

 

They went to their cave and decided to

 

behave, they went to bed and started

 

snoring as heavy as lead.

 

The next morning, on the second day

 

before Christmas Eve, the sneetches woke

 

up one by one.There bellies were empty,

 

and they were sure they could eat a ton.

 

Time flew by and they only

 

got hungrier.Their bellies

 

went from a mumble to a

 

rumble.

 

Until, the night had arrived.

 

They thrived at the thought of being

 

allowed to eat. The sneetches were ready

 

for a very big feast. They munched and

 

munched until all their hunger was done.

 

The decorations had danced along on

 

their tongue.

 

The next morning the town had noticed a

 

 

frightful fear. Something that made them

 

all go “oh dear!”

 


The town had noticed that all of the

 

decorations and even the star was gone.

 

No clues, no evidence, not even a hair.

The only evidence they found

 

was big footprint to that can

 

only be from a bear.

 

The people of Zuckerberg could not do

 

anything but stare.

 

As the sneetches woke up, in their cave, one kid had caught their glare. He had yelled, “look up there!” The whole town of Zuckerberg had looked up at the sneetches’ cave.

 

They had all started to rave it. It had such a commotion that a few of the people went up to explore.

 

The town had wanted to know more. The sneetches were very surprised, no one had ever dared to come inside.

 

They tripped and slipped

 

scared of what would

 

happen. But once the people

 

had come in, all they said

 

was, “hello”. To the

 

sneetches

 

amazement there was no

 

hostility. For they never

 

thought there was such a

 

possibility.

They replied, “hello” in a

 

kindly tone. “Why do you live

 

up here?”, asked the people.

 

 

The sneetches replied,

 

“because of your fear”.

 

“We fear you because you

 

destroyed our town” spoke

 

the town folks.

 

 

The sneetches have now all

 

put on a frown. The red, blue,

 

and green sneetches all said,

 

“ We feel bad and now we are

 

sad”.

 

The sneetches felt bad so

 

they

 

went to all of the stores of

 

Zuckerberg and bought all of

 

the christmas decorations

 

that they could buy. They only

 

had three dollars and seven

 

cents so they couldn't buy

 

much.

 

The sneetches had about an

 

ornament  with the three

 

sneetches on it. The town

 

was disappointed in them.

 

So the sneetches came up

 

with and idea.

 

They waited till the town went

 

quiet. Then they began. The three

 

sneetches made decorations with

 

the supplies they had.

 

In the morning the town came to a great

 

surprise. One that would knock their

 

socks off, it was better than ever. The

 

whole tree was decorated with beautiful

 

lights and ornaments
