Good and Bad Things About Christmas

Class 1W

(Posted Friday 22nd December 2006)


BAD
At Christmas there are a lot of good and bad things about it. One bad thing at Christmas is that a lot of houses get broken into. It is mostly because people know that there are going to be lots of new things, which people might want. It is one of the worst times in the year for the police because there are a lot of robberies which is hard for the police to deal with.

GOOD
One of the good things about Christmas is being with family and friends because they keep you company at Christmas. But even though it's a good thing, some families fall out at this time of year which can be upsetting.

By Dawn Carroll 1F


GOOD
One good thing about Christmas is that we get to stay off school and have fun with family and friends. This is good because if it snows you can build a snowman, have a snowball fight, go sleighing or stay inside and watch everyone else freeze to death as they play in the snow. Spending time with family and friends is good because it's a good excuse to dress up and go out.

By Caitlin Brown 1F


BAD
One bad thing about Christmas is that people over do it with the Christmas lights. Some people get really competitive over decorating there house with lights. It's really bright when someone puts lights up on their house and the glare of them must be a bit off putting for drivers.

By Caitlin Brown 1F

Festive cheer! I think festive cheer is a good thing because nearly everyone is happy, and also, everyone is nice and kind to other people.

By Scott Crawford 1F

A good thing about Christmas is all the colourful presents under the tree with things like bows and ribbons on the top.

By Lauren Dunlop 1F

A bad thing about Christmas is when your brother or sister gets really jealous of you because they think your gifts are better than theirs or if they think you got more money spent on you.

By Lauren Dunlop 1F

I think the best thing about Christmas is Christmas is decorations because it brightens up your house its fun putting the decorations on the tree and putting the lights on the house.

By Holly Jarvie

BAD
I think the bad things about Christmas is stupid people very competitive about there Christmas decorations to see who can get the most decorations up!

By Holly Jarvie


GOOD
I think the good thing about Christmas is presents because when you get presents they keep you content and you're not always asking your mum and dad “What can I do?” or saying “I'm bored” and also if you wanted to help charity you could give them your old presents .

By JF

GOOD
One good thing about Christmas is all of the lights and decorations that lots of people put on their houses. It is colourful and bright and lovely, it looks very "Christmasy" and it really puts you in the sprit of Christmas.

By Lauren Dean

BAD
All the drunk people in the town is horrible and they stagger about and they think they're so cool.

By Lauren Dean

BAD
I think the bad thing about Christmas is all the old people who run out of food or get too cold or lonely and some old people even die at Christmas time.

By JF

GOOD
A good thing about Christmas is having your family over @ your house because I enjoy being in the kitchen making the Christmas dinner and organising the music and entertainment supplies times and pick-ups.

By Cameron Thomson 1F


BAD
A bad thing about Christmas is house fires. I mean think about the amount of electricity needed for the lights and the heat coming off of them Not to mention the candles beside the wrapping paper.

By Cameron Thomson 1F

BAD
Drunks and crashes! Drunks are a bad thing for Christmas because there could be lots of accidents and people being sued for something they didn't mean to do.

By Scott Crawford 1F

GOOD
A good thing about Christmas is when your family come to visit. It is nice when they come because you might not have seen them for a long time. Then you get together to have your Christmas dinner. It's the time when you can hear how everyone is doing. When everyone is finished, you then open all the Christmas presents that they get you.

Michelle Patterson 1F

BAD
A bad thing about Christmas is when it snows a lot. When there is a lot of snow, the roads get icy and sometimes the roads are closed. Then your family can't visit.

Michelle Patterson 1F

GOOD
Good things about Christmas are you get to spend time with your family and friends. You get to decorate the Christmas tree and house with lights and decorations. Unwrapping presents to see what you have got. Christmas songs because it gets you in the mood. Playing in the snow and making snowmen.

Kirsty McLaughlan 1F

BAD
The bad things about Christmas are robbers breaking into your house, food poisoning from the turkey and having to kiss someone under the mistletoe.

Kirsty McLaughlan 1F


GOOD

One good thing about Christmas is all the lovely presents that everyone gets, because it wouldn't be Christmas without presents! Even if you don't like what you've been given it's the thought that counts.

Amy Blades 1F


BAD

One bad thing about Christmas is the Christmas lights that everyone outs up. I think Christmas lights are too competitive. Some people try to have more Christmas lights up around their house than their neighbours.

One good thing about Christmas is meeting your family if they don't stay near you. One bad thing is when your parents go out for a drink and your left in the house with your gran bored.

Presents are good because its good to get something and give something also some stuff you have wanted for a while then got it for Christmas. You can also get good suprises and that's what children like.

Good and Bad Things About Christmas

Class 2D1

(Posted Friday 15th December 2006)

GOOD
One good point about Christmas is swapping stuff with your friends. For instance, if I got a football top and already had the same one, and if my friend got two pairs of the same trainers we would swap stuff. This is a good point because it means the two of us have more and different stuff.

Jackson Biggar 2D1


BAD

One bad thing about Christmas is when you get the cold or the flu because it brings you down in the joyous season. When everyone is out playing in the snow, you're stuck in bed in the house feeling miserable and everyone else is having lots of fun.

Jackson Biggar 2D1


GOOD

Christmas is the prettiest time of the year with all the decoration outside people's houses, and inside people's houses. If you go down into Kilmarnock town centre you will see some really nice decorations. Sometimes people go over the top with decorations and it is not nice. I think we really need them at this time of year, because it is dark and miserable.

Zara Shaw 2D1


BAD

One of the bad things about Christmas is robberies because more things are lying out round about Christmas Eve, so more robbers want to steal because things are brand new and still in their boxes, and they could sell their stolen goods to drug dealers.

Nicola Nimbley 2D1


GOOD

Christmas cards are a good way to get excited about Christmas, like the ones that have pictures of snowmen and glittery ones. It is also good to let people know that you're thinking about them.

Andrew Gilmour 2D1


BAD

House fires are caused by people leaving Christmas lights, cigarettes and candles lit and then these set alight curtains, beds, couches, Christmas trees and carpets. House fires ruin Christmas for the people in the house. They burn the presents and the house too.

Duncan Dewar 2D1


GOOD

One of the good things about Christmas is getting money because you can buy whatever you want to buy, like a new phone or a game. The phone I will buy will be the Samsung D900 and the game will be Fifa 2007, and with the left over money I would save it up till next Christmas and buy presents for my family!!

Kenny Barclay 2D1

BAD
One of the bad things about Christmas is that people getting drunk can lead to arguments, violence, being nuisances at parties and drink driving - which causes a lot of deaths. People can have a drink at Christmas as long as they don't go over the top.

Rebecca Paini 2D1


GOOD

Food is good at Christmas because you sit down at the fire with your family. We have nice food like turkey, potatoes, chocolate and Christmas cake. It is good because you sit and watch the T.V. and eat selection boxes. Don't eat too much or you will get sick or get food poisoning.

Dylan Barclay 2D1


BAD

One of the bad things at Christmas time is arguments. Arguments mostly start when people are drunk, or jealous about presents that other people receive. People should remember that Christmas is meant to be a happy time of the year and should appreciate what they get.

Kathryn McLean 2D1


GOOD
One of the good things about Christmas is spending time with your family and friends, having a laugh and a drink and having fun or listening to your papa's or dad's old stories - even though you've heard them a million times before! It's also fun pulling crackers and telling jokes as well as giving and receiving gifts from relatives.

Claire Todd 2D1

BAD
One of the bad things about Christmas is jealousy. If your friend, brother, sister or relative gets a present that you wanted, you may be upset. You shouldn't be though - you should be grateful for what you did get.

Claire Todd 2D1

GOOD
Snow is good at Christmas because we have snowball fights, and you can make a snowman. It is good because the place is white and there is no sand. Most cars are not on the road. The snow lights up the trees. It is cold, but nice.

Dylan Barclay 2D1


BAD
Another bad thing about Christmas is arguments. Your family and friends might be arguing at this time of year and getting into fights. Then getting themselves and others upset about it and ruining it.
