A Bad Christmas by Jamie Dawson It was Christmas Eve and Peggy MacDonald was getting ready to go to Midnight Mass. Then suddenly she heard sleigh bells. She just ignored it but then she heard them again, so she went outside to see. When she got outside she saw nothing, but heard a voice say, "Something bad is going to happen." Twelve o'clock came and she went to church. Mass got out and she went home. She was asleep when she was awakened by sleigh bells. She went downstairs and she heard a voice say, "Something bad is going to happen." This frightened her greatly.
