1. Bells

Shiny and metallic, but not a piece of bling
They’re there to make a noise – shake them and they’ll ring

2. Star

The second item is bright – real ones are on fire
To find this item in the room, you’ll have to look up higher

3. Rudolph

You’ll never see this animal as you should be in bed
The most famous part of his body is the color red

4. Snowman

You’ll start making him by getting on a roll
Then adding a scarf, a carrot and some coal

5. Scarf

When it’s cold out, you’ll find yourself a wreck
Without something warm to wrap around your neck

6. Sled

If you find it’s snowy, don’t fall like Jack & Jill
Instead you can use this transport to make it down the hill

7. Santa Claus

Hoping a stranger breaks in your house would normally be quite weird
Except at Christmas when you want a visit from this old man with a beard

8. Angel

If you’ve always wished that you could fly, you’ll be jealous of these things
It looks like they drink Red Bull, as they have a pair of wings

9. Elf

It’s thanks to beings like me that your toys don’t come from stores
Because I’m a little helper who makes your gifts from Santa Claus

10. Nativity Scene

This may seem like a strange mix, but it’s there for all to see
With parents, shepherds, kings, animals and a baby
