"Dear Journal, after I saved Christmas, having vanquished the sinister and abominable Grinch, the children came out to play and celebrate. They engaged me in a most pleasant conversation and thanked me for decorating the Christmas tree and building a snowman."
"They inquired as to whether or not I new how to dance and to sing."
"I did a Christmas dance and a sang cute little carol about a snowman who came to life; it was a song that I learned as a child while attending the academy."
"They asked if the snowman which I built was magical as well and I replied, 'you never know.'" I rarely have the chance to do much of anything other than helping the people of Ancaria and saving their world, so this was a refreshing change of pace. The merchant gave me some hot food from his stand and the townspeople treated me as if I belonged there. We had such a wonderful time and I was invited to return to visit at any time of my choosing as I would ever remain their honored guest. That was surely one invitation which I shall neither forget nor forgo; I told them that I intended to come back next Christmas. It is difficult to explain, but I was a bit sad that I had to leave this place, yet at the same time I was happy for the new friends and the merry time that we shared. As I prepared to depart I raised my joyful voice, shouting, 'Merry Christmas to you all and may peace be with you!'"
"Merry Christmas to you also, readers of my journal. May you find peace, health, and prosperity in the year to come!"
