- Page 1. Clara O'Reilly, Happy Christmas, Love Mam and Dad
- Page 2. Clara was age 8 and lived with her family in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. She loved parties, but most of all Christmas was by far the best. Everyday she marked off the days slowly but surely leading up to the big day! This year she was going to Christmas Panto and was so excited.
- Page 3. Christmas Holidays were always a magical time of year in Enniscorthy. There was always great excitement and preparation in the house! She had spent a long time writing her letter to Santa before she sent it to Lapland. She had tried so hard to be good this year! She begged Santa to bring her a Doll and Doll's House. She couldn't believe it when she received a reply from one of Santa's elves.
- Page 4. Christmas Shopping was always an exciting time for Clara even though she didn't have a lot of money she loved buying presents for her family. The streets and shops were all lit up with Christmas lights. The sounds of carol singers echoed loudly through the streets. Clara was so busy looking into the shop she nearly lost sight of her mother.
- Page 5. Clara and her sister and brother had just got home from town after the big Christmas shop and began to finish decorating the Christmas Tree. Clara put all her presents neatly under the tree. 2014 was going to be a Special Christmas, Clare could feel it.
- Page 6. Early next morning she heard the postman ring the bell. The postman asked "Does Clara O' Reilly live here?, " Yes, Yes I'm here", roared Clara as she leapt out of bed. Clara was eager to see what was inside the big box but her Mam said she had to wait until Christmas morning! It was really heavy, the magic of Christmas was building.
- Page 7. "Can I bring it up to my room?" asked Clara. This was followed by a stern warning not to open it until the next morning. Mother spent all that day cooking and baking. Her sister and brother helped her while Clara helped her Dad with the outdoor lights. There was visitors calling all day long and the ground was covered in snow.
- Page 8. At Last it was time to go to bed. T'was the night before Christmas. Clara made sure to leave out milk and some carrots for Rudolph and his friends. Clara's Christmas stocking was hanging up on the end of her bed. She warned her parents to be in bed before Santa arrived. Clara listened out for Santa, as her friend Aisling was sure she heard Santa last year.
- Page 9. Clara woke suddenly thinking she had heard something. She rushed into the living room to find a Bike and a pram. She screamed with joy and woke the whole house. Her mother told her to go back to bed as it was only 5.30 am. Bed was the last thing on Clara's mind. Clara opened the box in her room to find a pair of roller blades. She couldn't wait to use them once the snow disappeared.
- Page 10. Clara put on her new clothes, she was very slow to leave her new toys and games. It was 8 O'Clock and Clara had just finished half a tine of roses chocolates and a selection box and was feeling fairly full going to church. She couldn't wait to get to church to meet her friends and to enjoy the singing of the different Christmas Carols. As church ended the snow was falling heavily.
- Page 11. Clara would have loved to make snowballs to throw at Aisling but her mother had other ideas. "LATER" she said as she didn't want her ruining her new Christmas clothes. In the car on the way home she couldn't wait to go home and play with his presents. After Christmas dinner Clara and Aisling made a snowman. This was the best Christmas Clara had ever wished for. She wished she could do it all over again!!
