Firefly jumped on the wind and, soaring higher  and higher,  thought she might look for the rainbow. She knew it loved to play hide and  seek. "I wonder where it is hiding today?" She thought. 

The wind whispered the answer in her ear.  "Thanks   for the ride!" Firefly said as she jumped off. She danced across the sky, sailing  from cloud to cloud. 

Finally she saw the snow-crested mountain peaks.  Nestled in the  deep mountain  valley  was the rainbow.  Firefly  laughed because under the rainbow was  Blossom,  sound  asleep!


 Medley was sitting on a friendly cloud humming when Firefly flew up  beside her. "Hello there, Medley," said Firefly. Medley waved her tail,  and the gentle sound of a harp  tinkled on the wind. "Why are you so quiet today?" asked Firefly. "I'm too hot to make much noise," answered  Medley. "Let's call the rain to cool  you off," Firefly said, then ran off to chase the clouds. "Come on, Medley!  Bring the drum!" Medley ran after   her and stamped her hoofs. Soon the deep, rolling sound of a thunderous drum filled the air and a light, gentle rain began to fall.


 Glory was looking for a special friend one who believes in magic.Glory One day she came  upon a grand castle and saw a beautiful young girl sitting by the pond. Glory made an unusual  sound. The girl turned to look at Glory, then ran toward her, arms outstretched in greeting. "I dream about you every night. Are you really here? Oh, please, please be here!" she exclaimed. Stars shot across the sky as Glory nestled her head in the young girl's shoulder. Glory knew that she had found her special friend- her friend that truly believes in magic!


Moondancer was sleeping peacefully.  Awakening  with  a  start, she found  Twilight beside her. “Cotton Candy is missing!” said Twilight. “Have you  seen her?” 

“Cotton Candy should go on a diet,” yawned Moondancer. “She ate my favorite  bluegrass and my prettiest wildflowers. I put her in  hibernation until  winter!” Twilight was stunned. 
“Free her from the spell, Moondancer. Her friends are worried!” 

“Is it winter already?” teased Moondancer. But she freed Cotton Candy from  the spell and even called the West Wind to give her a ride home.


SunbeamSunbeam had a wonderful idea. "It's time to have a party for all my friends," she thought. "I'll invite the sun, the clouds, the rainbow, and all of pony land. It will be a very special party."

Everyone came. The ponies feasted on wonderful food and danced until dark. Then the wind carried Firefly, Sunbeam, and Moondancer high above the castle. Soon beautiful colors danced across the sky - the
fireworks had begun! All the ponies cheered and stamped their hoofs with glee. They had never seen anything like it. Sunbeam's party was a great success!


Long ago on one warm and misty  night, Twilight wanted to make a wish. Her keen eyes roamed the dark sky. "I do not see a single star to make a wish  upon," she said as she reared and pointed her horn at the moon. "Oh, dear Moon, please bring out a star for me tonight." Suddenly, the sky  was ablaze with light. every single star that existed shone down on Twilight. "Make your wish   quickly, Twilight!" boomed the Moon.  Twilight wished that all the stars would shine so bright on that same night, every  year. Now all the ponies come out to make their own special wishes on  these starry, starry  nights.
