It was the Christmas Eve. The snow began to fall, slowly at first, then faster and faster. Soon it was howling outside the window like a wild animal.

The room was dark - there was only a little light coming from the glowing embers in the fireplace. Two little kids were sitting by the fireplace. They were playing with a small toy tank that they had gotten as a Christmas gift.

A big dog was lying in front of the fireplace asleep. He opened his eyes and looked at the children and smiled at them. The children stopped their game and hugged him gently around his neck.

"Duke...You are such a good dog..." Said one of the kids with a happy smile on her face. "I love you..."

Suddenly, Duke raised his front paws in fear, his ears were on alert listening to some strange noise in the distance. He began to howl so loud that his howls filled up the whole room!

"Shut up, Duke!" Said one of the kids with an angry voice. Duke continued to howl like mad, then the sound of thunder began to roar outside!

At that moment all three of them jumped up from their chairs! It looked like something terrible was going to happen.

Then suddenly, a magic green light came down from heaven and covered everything around them! They could see an amazing white world around them. Raindrops began to fall on top of their heads.

Then, it started snowing again harder than before, but this time it wasn't just snowflakes falling from heaven, it was tiny little Christmas presents!!

The kids grabbed as many presents as they could catch from thin air – it seemed like there will never be enough presents for them, and they were happy, so happy that tears came into their eyes.

And finally, when they closed their eyes, they realized that every single present under their tree this year was given by Santa Claus himself, and he had brought enough for every kid in America too, only because of two little kids named Tom and Lisa that believed in him so much on this Christmas Eve.

There were no more tears left in Tom's eyes, and he was smiling again, looking at this wonderful white world surrounding him now, thinking about what Santa Claus did only because of two kids who believed in him so much.

"You see Lisa?" He said "I told you Santa Claus will come! This is real magic!"

那天是圣诞夜。雪下了起来。 雪花先是缓慢的飘落,然后越来越快。很快,它就像野兽一样在窗外嚎叫着。

房间里很暗——壁炉里炽热的余烬只有一点点光亮。两个小孩坐在壁炉旁。他们正在玩一个小玩具坦克,那是他们得到的圣诞礼物。

一只大狗躺在壁炉前睡着了。它睁开眼睛,看着孩子们,对他们笑了笑。孩子们停下游戏,轻轻搂住它的脖子。

"公爵,你真是条好狗 ",其中一个孩子脸上挂着幸福的笑容, "我爱你!"

突然,公爵吓得抬起前爪,耳朵警觉地听着远处传来的奇怪的声音。它开始大声嚎叫,他的叫声充满了整个房间!

"闭嘴,公爵!"一个孩子用愤怒的声音说道。公爵继续疯狂的嚎叫,然后外面响起了雷鸣!

他们三个都跳了起来!看起来有什么可怕的事情要发生了。

然后突然,一道神奇的绿光从天而降,覆盖了他们周围的一切!他们看到旁边是一个美妙的白色世界。雨滴开始落在他们的头上。

然后,又开始下雪了,但这次不仅仅是从天而降的雪花,而是小小的圣诞礼物!!

孩子们从空气中抓住尽可能多的礼物——礼物对他们来说永远是不够的。他们太开心了,高兴得眼泪都出来了。

终于,当他们闭上眼睛时,他们意识到今年圣诞树下的每一件礼物都是圣诞老人亲自送的,而且他也为美国的每个孩子带来了足够的礼物,只因为两个名叫汤姆和丽莎的小孩在这个平安夜坚信他一定会来的!

汤姆的眼中已经没有了泪水,他笑着,看着眼前这个美好的白色世界,想着圣诞老人所作的一切都只是因为两个孩子如此信任他。

"你看到了吗丽莎?"他说:"我告诉过你圣诞老人会来的!这真是太神奇了!"
