An Elf’s An Elf

Posted by Santa Claus on December 7th, 2010

Here is a story I almost forgot about.  I am glad Mrs. Claus reminded me!

It was Mouse the Littlest Elf’s very first day in the North Pole Workshop.  She was so excited!  She could hardly wait.  She wanted to find out what her new job was going to be!  Was she going to make dolls for good little girls?  Was she going to make iPads, iPods or iPhones?  She could not wait to find out!

When she got to the North Pole Workshop, she went to help the elves making dolls.  They told her she was too small to help.  So Mouse said, “An elf’s an elf, no matter how small!”

Then she asked if she could help make some music players or phones or cameras or…  but every time the answer was the same.  “Sorry, Mouse the Littlest Elf; you are just too little to help make that”.  And every time Mouse would say, “An elf’s an elf, no matter how small!”

She had been so excited to help at the Workshop.  She knew she could help.  She was not going to let what the other elves had said stop her.

So, Mouse the Littlest Elf walked around the Workshop.  She walked to the present wrapping machine to help some elves unwrap Clumsy the Elf (again).  But Clumsy was already unwrapped by the time she got there.

There was quite a bit of ribbon left on the floor from Clumsy.  So Mouse picked up a long piece of ribbon and started to play with it.  Before you knew it, she had made a beautiful Christmas bow with the ribbon.  No one had ever seen a Christmas bow before.

But now Mouse did not know what to do with the pretty bow.  Clumsy was walking toward Mouse with a present.  So, Mouse the Littlest Elf stuck the bow right on top of that present.

Clumsy stopped.  Suddenly the whole North Pole Workshop was very quiet.  The elves were all looking at Mouse and the present.  Mouse was a little afraid she had done something wrong.

Then the elves all started to cheer!  They all came running.  They had never seen a Christmas bow before!  They had never seen a Christmas bow on a present before!  They loved it!  They thought it was the best thing ever!

Clumsy said, “Mouse the Littlest Elf, this present is for you because we all love you”.  Mouse opened the present.  Inside was a pair of shoes that would make her taller.  Then Mouse said, “Thank you everyone, but an elf’s an elf no matter how small.  I don’t need special shoes to make me feel tall!”

All the elves cheered, “Hurray for Mouse the Littlest Christmas Elf!  From now on we’ll always put a bow on Christmas presents to remind us that everyone we give a present to is special to us, no matter how small!”

Merry Christmas!

P.S.  Do you think Mouse the Littlest Elf was right?  Do you have any messages for her?  (You can tell her here.  Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)
