Christmas was one of Dinky the Donkey's favourite times of year. He of course loved summertime too, when he would give children rides on his back along the sandy beach close to where he lived. But Christmas was his favourite time of all with the snow on the ground, sparkling Christmas lights and decorations, and most of all, a visit from Santa Claus. Dinky loved Santa Claus, he thought him to be a jolly fellow who made all of the children happy by bringing them gifts. And every year Santa would bring Dinky a present too; a large bag of fresh juicy carrots and a piece of peppermint candy. Because Dinky himself loved to make children happy, it had always been his dream to lead Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. He dreamed about it each night in the days and weeks before Christmas and every year he tried very hard to stay awake until Santa came to his stable. But every year he fell asleep and by the time that he awoke, Santa had already visited and left Dinky his gifts.
