“Christmas, Christmas time is here!” Walice sang as he skipped around the tree. “Time for joy and time for cheer!” Gromit on the other hand was Walice’s dog. He couldn’t speak but he still had fun on Christmas. Gromits favorite part was wrapping presents. In fact that’s what he was doing now. Walice prancing and Gromit was wrapping when suddenly they both heard a knock on the door. It was Lady Tottington.
“Merry Christmas!” She said.
“To you to.” Walice replied.
“The carols are about to start in the town square.” She said. “Are you going?”
” Yes I believe we are.” Walice told her. “What do you say old pal?” he said as he turned to Gromit. Gromit nodded his head eagerly. “We’ll be there.”
The town square was packed. Everyone in town must have been there. Walice and Gromit found a good place where they could see everything clearly. The children from the local school sang carols and after that it was time to light the tree’s lights.
“The lights are going to be beautiful, I bet!” Walice whispered to Gromit. The mayor was infront of the tree and started to speak.
“Thank you everyone!” He said “Now it’s time to light the tree!” He cooed and plugged the cords together. The lights didn’t turn on.
“Wonder why the lights aren’t turning on.” Walice whispered to Gromit. Gromit shrugged. Suddenly Walice heard a whisper in his ear.
“Christmas spirit.” said a voice. “Christmas spirit.”
“We need more Christmas spirit!” Walice blurted. “Sing with me!” He yelled. “Christmas, Christmas time is here!” slowly people joined in. “Time for joy and time for cheer!” Once they had everyone singing the lights turned on with a splash of color. ” We can hardly stand the wait!” Please Christmas don’t be late!”
