The tradition of story telling is stronger at Christmas time than almost any other time of the year. Whether stories are read aloud to family and friends, or alone by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa, it’s an activity all cherish during the holidays. In the spirit of sharing, enjoy these stories written by Pique writers for you.

How are you? I am fine. My name is Mathilda Brown, I'm eight years old and I've been a very good girl this year. I have helped my parents, fed the dog and been kind to others, and I always, always listened to my teacher. This year I would please like the following:
Thanks! I hope the weather is nice at the North Pole.
Thank you for your letter. My elves and I will do our best to make you some of the items on your wish list in our workshop. Keep up the good deeds and Merry Christmas to you!
Love and Gingerbread,
It's Mathilda again. Mathilda Brown. Eight years old. I must admit that I was a little surprised to read your letter and while I don't want to seem ungrateful, I don't know what you mean by "do our best." To me, that sounds like I'm not getting everything on my list?
Maybe you don't quite understand how good I've been this year. I assure you that I've been very, very good, and I've attached copies of my last three report cards as proof. As you can see I have perfect attendance as well as straight As. Please, please, please try to bring me all of the items on my list (see attached in cased you misplaced my last letter).
