Chapter Eight

The inside of the Center was decorated with the Christmas theme and on the stage was a huge tree and it was all decorated. On each of the tables were place setting with everyone's name on them and as the people came into the Center they found where they were to sit.

Then Mr. Wilson got up on stage and he said "I want to thank each and everyone for coming to our annual Christmas Party and I would like it if we could all bow our heads and say a silent prayer for what we are about to receive." When everyone was done he said please bring out the food."

Helga and her staff all wheeled around carts that were loaded with food and as they each stopped at every table they would ask everyone "What would you like to eat, we have turkey and ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, cranberry sauce, olives and of course rolls."

After everyone was served, Helga said "Leave room for a piece of pie and some whipped topping."

Everyone was really enjoying their meal and as they all talked to each other, Mr. Wilson loved seeing all the happy faces on each and every one of them.

Then as everyone finished, Joey, Yugi, Tristan, Duke, Ryou and Malik all went around and picked up the dirty dishes and then the staff wheeled out the pie and topping and when everyone was served what they wanted.

Then Mr. Wilson said "In a little while we will be getting a special visit from someone, can anyone tell me who that could be?"

All the children all shouted out "Is it Santa?"

Mr. Wilson then laughed and said "Yes Santa is coming to pay us a visit before he heads back to the North Pole to get his Sleigh and of course the Reindeer ready to his flight around the world delivering all the toys to all the girls and boys."

Just then Sleigh bells could be heard and the children's eyes got really big and then the back door opened and in walked Santa Claus with a big bag of toys on his back and Santa said "Ho, ho, ho Merry Christmas everyone."

Everyone in the Center said "Merry Christmas Santa."

Then Mr. Wilson said "I would like every parent to bring up their children and I don't care how old they are up on the stage to meet Santa, and I would like to have the single people to come up on stage too."

So as everyone stood in line to meet Santa, Joey and the others cleared off the tables and then Helga and her staff went around and placed an envelope one each of the tables and then they left the room.

The children were place in order to their age and size and even Joshua and Jenny were in line with Ishizu and Shadi. As they went one by one to sit on Santa's lap and were given a special gift and a candy cane then they all went back to their tables. The older children each got a special gift too as well as the single people and when they all got back to their tables they found the envelopes and then Seto Kaiba came onto the stage and said "Would all of you please open your envelopes."

When all the envelopes were opened inside they all found a key, but what did the key belong to? Then Seto said "These keys belong to your new homes and apartments that with the very generosity of some very special people we were able to make this Christmas a very special one for all of you."

Everyone was hugging their families and the ones that were single were hugging each other. Then Seto said "Tomorrow morning around nine o'clock there will be several dozen cars outside to take each of you to your new homes that have been completely furnished and stocked with food, then Mr. Wilson said "This has been a very Merry Christmas for all of us and I think that we should all say a prayer for those who have made all of this possible." Everyone stopped talking and they all gave thanks to those who made this their happiest Christmas ever.

Then as Mr. Wilson stood there on stage, Solomon, Seto, Joey, Yugi, Yami, Ryou, Malik, Tristan, Duke and Santa Claus and his Elf all started singing:

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer. Refrain

We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here. Refrain

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Everyone in the room stood up and started singing the song with them and the sounds of their voices could be heard outside and into the clear night air.

Then a child's voice could be heard asking her mother "Are there angels among us tonight?"

Then Mr. Wilson who was walking among the people stopped and answered the child by saying "Yes honey, there are angels among us to night."

So as the party started to end, Mr. Wilson looked around at the faces he had come to know and love and he gave thanks to God above for allowing him to have such and rich and love filled life.

Tonight a miracle did happen to the lives of everyone in that room.

If you were to listen very carefully you could hear the Angels in heaven singing:

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?


Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.


See Him in a manger laid,
Whom the choirs of angels praise;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise.
