It was twenty fourth of December. London had got ready to X-mas. People had decorated their houses. They were shouting "A merry X-mas to you" in the streets.
But one girl (her name was Mary) was very sad. She stayed with her brother John and their dog Martin. Their parents went to the other country and they will return only after X-mas. That`s why the children hadn`t presents and a X-mas tree...
Mary was sitting near the window. Suddenly she noticed Martin playing with John. The dog was merry.
"John", said Mary. "I think we must go and buy something for Martin. After all, he must have merry X-mas." John nodded and Martin barked.
The children went out. London was very nice. The houses were decorated with an ivy and holly.
John and Mary bought the nice ball for Martin. Now he had a X-mas present.
The children were walking very slowly, but finally they had come. Suddenly they saw light in their windows. What`s the matter? It was their parents, who had returned with presents. It was wonderful!
John and Mary and Michael had a beautiful Christmas.
