Would you like to know what it is like at the North Pole?
It can be a pretty silly place! Especially in the morning. Especially when it’s time for elf breakfast! Would you like to hear about breakfast with the elves?
Well, when the elves wake up they all slide out of bed… on their slides! They have a quick wash. They brush their teeth. Then they put on their little elf outfits, hats and pointy little elf shoes.
Then they all go to the Great Hall of Elves for a big elf breakfast. As soon as you walk in the door your tummy gets hungry. It is from the smell of fresh maple syrup and candy canes. Yum!
The elves sit in little sleighs to eat their meals. There are great big bowls of food. There’s lots of healthy food like apples, berries and snow bananas. There’s lots of yummy elf food too. There’s candy cane oatmeal. And the elves really like the hot maple syrup elf cakes (with chocolate pickle sauce of course!).
Then an elf will ask, “Does anyone have any maple syrup?” All the other elves answer, “I do!” Then they ALL bring their little bottles of maple syrup to that elf. In the end, that elf has so many little bottles that you can hardly see his sleigh!
Mrs. Claus and I visit each of the little sleighs. We talk with all the elves. We take pictures with them too. We share cookies and hot chocolate. We have a real nice little visit with each elf. The elves love silly Christmas jokes and we all laugh and laugh!
Whoever eats the biggest, healthiest breakfast gets to keep the Big Spoon for the rest of the day. It’s a REALLY big spoon, bigger than an elf!
But you can tell when the elves are full. They ALL start burping! Oh my goodness what a sound!
First one starts and then another. Pretty soon the whole hall is full of burping and laughing elves. Then, when Mrs. Claus has had enough of the elves’ being silly, she rings her shiny silver bell. The elves ALL stop and say “Sorry, Mrs. Claus”.
Hmm, I wonder if that’s where the Christmas song “Silver Bells” came from?
Ho! Ho! Ho!
P.S. What do you think would be the silliest part of having an elf breakfast? (You can tell me what other silly things you think elves do at breakfast here. Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)
