It was Christmas morning. Grampy’s Little Green Car was all tucked into the garage. He was nice and warm and cozy.
“I sure hope Grampy is going to come out to see me,” said Grampy’s Little Green Car. “It is Christmas Day after all.”
About half an hour later Grampy’s Little Green Car saw the garage door open and Grampy came into the garage carrying an armload of gifts.
“Look at all the Christmas presents I have for you,” said Grampy.
Grampy had new windshield wipers, new floor mats and new seat covers. Grampy installed the new wipers, and put in the new floor mats and then put the new seat covers on. Once he did all that, he grabbed the keys and came and sat in the driver’s seat.
“Let’s go for a drive around the block,” said Grampy.
Grampy’s Little Green Car was very excited. He loved going for a drive. It was his favourite thing to do.
Grampy pulled out of the driveway and drove around the block. It was snowing and every house on the street had their Christmas lights on. It was a beautiful sight.
“I don’t want to go home yet,” said Grampy when they drove around the block. “Let’s keep driving.”
Grampy’s Little Green Car was thrilled. During the winter months, Grampy didn’t take his little green car out much, so this was a real treat for him.
Grampy headed north and drove for a very long time. Soon, Grampy pulled the little green car down a very steep hill and at the bottom of the hill was a sign that read “North Pole”. Then, Grampy’s Little Green Car saw a huge castle.
“Here we are at Santa’s Castle,” said Grampy, getting out of the car and walking up the front steps of the castle. “Wait here.”
A few minutes later, Grampy returned. Santa Claus was right behind him.
“Get in,” said Grampy.
Grampy’s Little Green Car was so excited. He couldn’t believe Santa was sitting in the passenger seat. This was the best Christmas ever!
“You have such a beautiful car,” said Santa, checking out the inside of Grampy’s Little Green Car. “I see you got all your Christmas gifts, new wipers, floor mats and seat covers.”
“Yes,” said Grampy. “They look very nice too!”
“How about we trade your car for my sleigh?” asked Santa.
“No,” said Grampy. “I will never get rid of this car. I love it too much.”
“I don’t blame you,” said Santa.
Grampy’s Little Green Car was so happy. He got to meet Santa and he found out Grampy would never trade him in, not even for Santa’s sleigh.
