Twilight is finally old enough to understand Christmas! But when her mother and Cadence tells her that everypony gets presents she has to figure out what everypony needs! Will she be able to get all the presents in time and celebrate her new holiday?

(This fic goes with a headcannon that Equestria has both Christmas AND Hearths Warming Eve! So it will go as a normal Christmas and not like Hearths Warming Eve with the play and such. Enjoy!)

umm... no offense or anything, but its Heart's Warming...
EDIT: just so people leave me alone, it wasn't there at first, now its there, happy?

Also, nice story

Hello.

I found your fanfic cute and gentle. Well done. :twilightsmile:

May I add a suggestion? Perhaps you should use the "alternative universe" tag. That would allow you to make the changes you wish with more freedom from canon. :pinkiesmile:

Keep safe!


1751556

As the author stated in the summary, it's because this fanfic assume that both exists in Equestria. :twilightsmile:

1751556
Heheh, try to read the description! :twilightsmile:

1751607

I don't think I'll have too much trouble with it not being cannon, I assume Twilight was being foalsat before she had her cutie mark and that age is maybe, 4 or 5 in human years. That's about the time you learn about Christmas or when you can remember it. But thanks for the suggestion, and thanks for reading!

Christianity is the reason Christmas exists. Headcanon or no, it has no place in Equestria, unless you intend to add a Jesus pony to the proceedings.

How cute :twilightsmile:

1751689

Uh, well, Celestia is considered their god in a way. You could use it like that, and I do understand Christmas but I'm not very religious. Sorry!

1751696

Thank you so much! :yay:

I love this fic :pinkiehappy:

1751825

Haha, thank you so much! I tried to write this the best I could and get a little moral in as well! :twilightsmile:

Hearth's Warming does seem to be more of a Thanksgiving-type holiday than a Christmas one, rather like a combination.... maybe we'll get a holiday that is their version of Christmas in that episode randomly in the middle of Season 3 that we have absolutely no knowledge about yet>

1751933

Oh god, wouldn't that be a twist! But I'm sure that whatever the writers have planned will be amazing! :pinkiehappy:

1751953 Considering how there are even some episodes after that that have had their titles/summaries released and not that one, I'm assuming it's something pretty big - probably the episode Tara Strong mentioned that "Bronies would go absolutely crazy over" if Magic Duel wasn't already that...:trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright::scootangel:

1751994
Magic Duel was a great episode, I loved it so much and Trixie is now higher on my list of ponies I like. The Saddle Arabian horses though... THEY WERE SO PRETTTTY! :raritystarry:

1752011 I hope we see more of them later. :twilightsmile:

Awwwwwww!!!! This is so cute! :yay: I don't even care that Christmas doesn't exist in Equestria (as far as we know). This is the most adorable story I've ever read.

1752249

I hoppppe! :pinkiehappy:

1752442

Hahaha, thanks!

1752449 They seemed to important to only appear briefly at the end of an episode...

Wow, after reading "Twilight's First Book" I didn't think Filly Twilight could get any cuter, but somehow you've managed. Absolutely, positively, unequivocally adorable. My heart didn't just melt, it vaporized. In fact, as soon as I'm done with this, I might want to call a few paramedics over. I think a few other vital organs decided to quit on me.

Once again, very well done. You've earned yourself one more upvote and favorite. And while I'm waiting for the ambulance, I think I shall add you to my list of watched authors. Writing one story this cute is a remarkable feat in of itself, but pulling off a second takes some skill. Excellent work.

1752531
Yeah... I wish they had spoken!

1752574

Thank you! :yay:

Oh, and about that one jerk-off colt who stole Twilight's money...

:flutterrage: I HOPE YOU BURN IN TATARUS FOR ETERNITY YOU CRUEL, HEARTLESS, SORRY EXCUSE FOR A PONY. :flutterrage:
That is all.

1752618

Maybe the colt needed the money for Christmas? I AM THE AUTHOR, THAT'S TOTALLY CANNON NOW! Nahh, idk, but I feel like god having the power to do that :rainbowlaugh: :trollestia:

Carol Of The Bells - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

I only got one problem with the concept:

Jesus Christ doesn't exactly fit into the MLP timeline...

I agree with the suggestions for Alt Universe. My favorite idea would be to say Xmas, or TOTALLY NOT CHRISTMAS.

Though I'll admit that this is a universe where ponies can fly, talk, and use magic, so... it's a nitpick.

1751689 Christmas was actually started by the Germans as a way to spread goodwill and kindness. Christians took that idea and smooshed it with the birth of Christ.

1751689

ACTUALLY Christmas is on the day of pagan winter celebration. As is the case of most holidays, incoming christians placed the holidays around existing celebrations, to make the transition to christianity more comfortable, as well as to make it seem as though little had changed. In fact, Christmas isn't even the day of Christ's birth. It is placed at the end of advent, the celebration of the second coming. Jesus wasn't even born on that day, we actually have no idea when he was born, as little to no records were kept back then, especially not for those of his class. If anything, it's either a celebration of winter (not jesus), the second coming (technically jesus, though the messiah more than just him, as the Jews and Muslims might argue) or pagan gods (of which the two princesses could easily qualify) so there very well could be a Christmas in Equestria. Just look at similarities between languages. As 1753035 pointed out, much of what we now think of at Christmas is German in origin. Well, the german word Buch is book. The word Asch is ass. The similarities only continue from there (yes I know those weren't the best examples //dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Twilight_Sparkle.png ) So there could easily be a holiday which, in Equestrian, is Christmas. //dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Lyra_dealwithit.png



Cute job Mageli. Oh, and if you could get me a description of this bit thief, I am planning a Flutterdark :scootangel://dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/Fluttershy_lolface.png

1753514
Thanks for the defense bro, AND IT'S PONIES, NO NEED TO START RELIGIOUS WARS :rainbowlaugh:

Hahaha, the bit thief... He's sneaking up, snatching yo bits :rainbowlaugh:

1753738

Eh, just some fun facts used in a semi-aggressive manor..... probably a bad idea considering how often I try to stop these things quoting 'love and toleration' but I was bored :moustache:

1753757

Funny story about your bit thief comment though, I was actually going to make him be a poor pony then Twilight learns how you don't need money for Christmas spirit, blab blah blahhh!

1753789 :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:....... why did I find that funny?:derpyderp2: But still. I'm gonna need a description. I'm thinking crushed under a mountain of bits......

1753799

The little colt laid crushed under the mountain of bits, his bones broken.

"Merry bucking Christmas," Fluttershy grinned.

AND THEN MAGGIE GOT TERRIBLE IDEAS FOR GRIMDARKS :rainbowlaugh:

1753821 Eh, something like that I'd suppose. There'd be a few thousand more words describing the blood splatters and pain, but that's pretty close.

1753865

Haha, if you want him he's a unicorn with a tan coat, brown messy mane with dirt in it, and green eyes.That's the basics, hit me up with a PM if you want something super detailed. :twilightsmile:

1753899

........ that will do...... it upsets me that, other than eye color, he looks almost exactly like my OC...... GEARS! WHY DID YOU ROB TWILIGHT!?!?!?

Gears: I didn't! I SWEAR!

LIES! *banishes Gears to timeout corner.*

1753514
You learn something new every day. I shall defer to your expertise in this matter.

1754099

Fair enough :twilightsmile: So, is this the first of Mageli's stories you've read? They're very good, or at least, I think so. Never perfect, but there are few who are.

1753935

Gears should feel ASHAMEDDDD! Sonic Spark, my OC, will yell at him

1754147

Hahaha, my stories arent perfeccct! :twilightblush:

1751556
Did you read the description they have hearts warming and Christmas.

1751689
Dude it's a cartoon lighten up.

1771574
Dude, it's a three-day-old reply. Hurry up.

1771574>>1772771

Woah woah woah you two, no need for anyone to be rude :twilightsheepish:

Twilight looked around before noticing a tall, unicorn colt laughing, "Thanks for the bits, pipsqueak!" the colt laughed and ran off.

Stealing from a little filly at Christmas? can you say naughty list?

Very cute and adorable! :twilightsmile::pinkiehappy: Of course, considering that Celestia becomes Twilight's own personal Jesus, it covers the religious aspect of the holiday, kind of. If I wanted to be technical, then they've already got it covered because Equestria seems more Pagan and that's where the idea originated from. But yeah, rant over, wonderful story! :pinkiehappy:

1776929

Haha, thank you so much for reading! :twilightsmile:

1777175 You're very welcome! :twilightsmile:

LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!:rainbowkiss::heart:Twilight is so adorable.:twilightsmile: I was smiling through the whole story. Well :moustache:done good sir.
