Snowy Christmas tree illustrating a Christmas story for kids Christmas in Ballyyahoo is usually one of those times where everything goes right for everybody.

Tasty food is cooked, presents are exchanged, dances and parties are held and everybody has a wonderful time.

I say usually, because last Christmas everything changed.

It started well. Food was being prepared, decorations were up. Parties were going on and even Kevin and Gerry, weren’t up to any mischief.

However, they were both feeling a little disappointed.

You see the Witch of Ballyyahoo had made them deputies so that they could help her with the fight against crime in Ballyyahoo.

The boys thought their days of boredom would be over.

As newly appointed deputies they thought they would be flying around Ballyyahoo on broomsticks, turning burglars into toads and turning toads into giant packets of crisps!

But that’s not what happened.

After they turned a bowl of vegetable soup into a bowl of bubbling, chocolate soup, Biddy the witch wouldn’t give them any more spells.

She said they’d get sugar-rot of the teeth and stomach, and that they’d end up so unfit that the criminals would run rings round them.

The witch said it would be far better for Gerry and Kevin to learn their witchcraft slowly, surely, and very, very carefully.

Still, with Christmas coming up the boys got over their disappointment and rode their bikes into the centre of town where the Ballyyahoo Christmas hooley. was taking place.

In case you don’t know a hooley is a party – only better.

Ballyyahooians know how to hooley and the Ballyyahoo Christmas hooley starts at lunchtime and ends at teatime – just in time for everyone to go home and wrap their presents.

The best thing about this year’s hooley was the music.

Maggie many cats runs the disco and she made huge speakers out of a pile of wooden pallets and some old tin bins.

The music was so loud that some said it make the telephone poles rattle in County Clare.

Seanie Kelly who runs the town shop is always a big hit with his home-made instruments.

This year he played the bin-lids, the rusty saw, the poker, and coal shovel, and of course, the very popular rake and wheelbarrow.

There was only one mishap and that was when Gerry’s mum, Dymphna was Zumba dancing backwards down the table .

She slipped on a turkey and stuffing sandwich.  As she went flying off the end of the table she grabbed Christmas tree.

Luckily, a nice elderly lady called Biddy, managed to catch her.

Everyone was amazed that a woman Biddy’s age was strong and fast enough to catch Dymphna in one hand and save the Christmas tree with the other.

But then none of them, apart from Gerry and Kevin, knew that Biddy wasn’t an ordinary woman, Biddy was a witch.

Santa and Rudolph arrived in Ballyyahoo shortly after Kevin and Gerry got home.

Now you might think this is a good thing.

Well it would have been a good thing were it not for the fact that this was no ordinary Santa and this was no ordinary Rudolph.

In fact they were villains in disguise and instead of leaving gifts and goodies this wicked pair stole all the presents away.
