One, Two, Bye-bye Boom!

Posted by Santa Claus on November 27th, 2010

One day all the elves were busy making Christmas presents in the North Pole workshop. All of a sudden there was a bright flash of light and BOOM! Everything shook and even the Christmas lights went out for a second. Mouse the littlest Elf came running to me. “Santa Claus” she said, “I’m scared!”

“Its ok Mouse” I said. “Its only a thunderstorm”. There was another flash of light and then BOOM! Mouse quickly grabbed hold of my hand.

“Mouse, would you like to help me make the thunderstorm go away?” “Yes, I would” she said, still scared.

“OK, the next time we see a flash of light we’ll start counting until we hear the thunder go BOOM!”

There was a flash of lightning right away so we started to count: “One… Two… Three…” BOOM!

“Now”, I told Mouse, “lets count again the next time we see lightning”.

We waited and then, FLASH! “One… Two… Three… Four… Five… Six…” BOOM!

“Santa” Mouse said, “We did it! The thunder is going away! We counted all the way to six that time!”

So Mouse and I counted every time we saw a flash of lightning until the thunderstorm went away.

Now whenever there is a thunderstorm Mouse the littlest Elf is still a bit afraid but she always helps me make the thunderstorm go away by playing “One, Two, Bye-bye Boom!”

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S. Are you a little afraid of thunder like Mouse the littlest Elf was? What do you do when there is a thunderstorm? (You can tell me by leaving me a note. Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)

    When there is a thunderstorm I hide under my bed or I go in the basement & chew on my fingernails!! That’s gross, I know, but that’s the only thing to do when there is a thunderstorm. I shouldn’t chew on my nails. I will try your suggestion next time!! Thank you Santa!!

    Hi Santa, I’m scared of storms only when there really big and trees look like there anout to fall down. When it’s only rain and little thunder i like it, it makes me really sleepy. Did you know that when you and Mouse counted to six that means the middle of the storm was six miles away, my dad told me that, are you scared of storms? Have you been in a bad storm on Christmas while you where giving out presents what wass that like?

    My friend kasidi said:

    yes i am a little afraid of lighting because when i was on my bus to school i didn’t see lightning but i did see a house that had been strucked by lightning and it wasn’t pretty. When there is lightning i always try to be the smallest. because lightning hits the tallest point.
