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!

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!)
