What Christmas Should Be

Couple/Focused Character: Michelangelo (TMNT)

Summary: Mikey only wants one thing for his Christmas

Mikey knew Christmas was just around the corner, but his brothers seemed to be too caught up between their fights with the Shredder and/or the Purple Dragons to think about the holiday.

What wishes will you make
When the season is near?
Will your dreams be the same
As they were last year?

It was like that every year, yet Mikey managed to keep them believing until they lost the will to belief. Will he forget, like the rest of them, about the magic and wonder?

Will you ask for a little?
Will you ask for a lot?
And when you make your list
Will there be something you forgot?

No, not Mikey… Every Christmas he'd been asking for just one thing: A peaceful Christmas with his family.

How about peace on earth?
It can't be bought or sold
How about peace this Christmas?
And someone's hand to hold?
How about love in our hearts?
And hope for you and me?
How about peace on earth?
That's what Christmas should be

Of course, the time would come when his brother came down to asking what he would like this year. But when Mikey was younger and her started to wish "For a true Christmas" with his family. So he'd shrugged his shoulders in reply to that.

Will you get all the things
That you've been waiting for?
Snowfall and presents
Choir singing at your door

So his brothers took it to be being indecisive, which was understandable.

This season will be perfect
like those picture postcards seem
But is that the answer
Is that what Christmas really means

There came a year when this reaction got them thinking that Mikey wanted a Christ more like those outta storybooks, with a fire burnin', presants and such.

How about peace on earth?
It can't be bought or sold
How about peace this Christmas?
And someone's hand to hold?
How about love in our hearts?
And hope for you and me?
How about peace on earth?
That's what Christmas should be

And Mikey remind wishing this year. His brother seemed to drop asking him what he wanted, for he never replied.

What would you sacrifice?
What would you give away?
For the greatest gift of all
On Christmas day?

A peaceful day this Christmas was what he wanted. It came that about a week form Christmas Eve that Master Splinter heard his youngest pray for that Christmas he'd longed for. Touched by his son's wish, he'd call the other three brothers for a talk. Splinter was going to my sure his son got what he wanted.

How about peace on earth?
It can't be bought or sold
How about peace this Christmas?
And someone's hand to hold?
How about love in our hearts?
And hope for you and me?
How about peace on earth?
That's what Christmas should be

Leo leads Mikey away form the lair the morning of the event. When the returned…The youngest turtle glowed with his happiness.

How about peace on earth?
It can't be bought or sold
How about peace this Christmas?
And someone's hand to hold?
How about love in our hearts?
And hope for you and me?
How about peace on earth?

How about peace on earth?
That's what Christmas should be

The family couldn't wish for nothing better than the gif they'd given themselves…

Merry Christmas
