Across the world, textbooks and pens were being replaced by tinsel and toy sheep as nativity season got into full swing. Predictably, festive feeling was more evident in some classrooms than others ...

So sick of school. Sooner I'm off for Christmas the better.


I feel like I'm the only one at this school that doesn't have an ugly Christmas sweater.


Accusing every teacher that gives me homework this week of not having the Christmas spirit.


People at my school have got me Christmas presents and I feel bad because I haven't. Oooopppsss.


My mum is going to her work Christmas party. She works at school. She's partying with teachers. I feel uncomfortable.
