The Christmas Elves Skating Party

love to go skating.  I think it is because they love the hot chocolate that always makes for them.  You know, the kind with the fancy imported marshmallows!  Yum!  It always smells and tastes so good after you play outside in the cold.

Would you like to hear about one of the first times the elves had a skating party?

Well, it was a long time ago.  Not too long after Mrs. Claus and I first met the elves.  The elves had never been ice-skating before.  But Mrs. Claus made fancy skates for all the elves.  She put candy cane blades on the bottoms of their pointy little elf shoes.  The elves loved them!

We made sure each elf had a helmet so they would be safe.  Each elf had a little red hat, little red mittens and a little red scarf to stay warm.

was telling all kinds of silly jokes as the elves were getting on the ice.  But when it was his turn to get on, he stopped telling jokes.  “Clumsy”, I asked, “Why did you stop telling silly jokes?”

“Well , I stopped telling jokes because I was afraid the ice might crack up,” laughed Clumsy.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

When Clumsy got on the ice, he slid all the way across.  He was doing really well until he remembered that he did not know how to stop!  SPLAT!  Into the snow bank he went.  When he stuck his head out he looked just like me!  He had snow all over his face so it looked like a long white beard.  He even had a little snowball on top of his little red hat!

But Clumsy wanted to learn how to skate. So he brushed the snow off and got back on the ice.

One leg went this way.  One leg went that way.  One arm was up in the arm and Clumsy’s nose looked like it was touching the ice as he spun about.  Then Clumsy grabbed Frosty the Snowman and they began to dance around.

And that is how figure skating began!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  Have you ever gone ice-skating?  Do you think it would be funny to see elves skating?   (You can tell me all about skating here.  Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)

  27. Hello everybody, I LOVE SKATING! I am in freestyle 4 at the Dublin Chiller in Columbus, Ohio. :)

  28. i’ve been ice skating before. I wasn’t very good at it, but it was really fun. we had a 15 minute training practice before. the trainers told us to do wacky tricks that i couldn’t even do. we had to jump up, twirl around and even more. then the trainerstold us we could ice skate on our own. i needed more training practice. But i just held on to the railing the whole time i was there. then it was time to eat. Elves please tell me how to ice skate!

  29. I’ve been skating for as long as I can remember, and I’m wayyy better than Clumsy! I’m even on a synchronized ice skating team and we just won first place two nights ago! I think the elves should start a synchronized ice skating team. They might start off bad but with practice even Clumsy will probably do well!

    I always wish to learn and do ice skating. Even my feet are excited! I know it is not as easy as it looks. Tell the elves (Especially Clumsy) that If I see the elves go skating, I bet it would be funny!

  51. I have been skating for three years.
    I was at a competition and I triped
    on my laces and fell flat on my face.

  52. SAnta, write me a letter now and when my parents get up I will tell them if it is OKAY, for something. Love, GRETCHEN XXXOOO

  53. One time I went ice skating with one of my best friends for her 8th birthday party.I wasn’t very good.I kept falling down.So I had to use those metal things that helped me stay up.When my friend’s mom took the picture I almost fell:)Then we had to go to her house for the party!!!!

  54. Do you know the Providence Bruins and do you know where they play? I skated on their ice and I am a Mite C2. I play for Braintree. I wish I played for the North Pole From: Zachary

  55. I really like this story. Clumsy should learn how to skate because he crashed. I think it would be fun to go to the North Pole.

  56. Last year we went ice skating with some of the neighbor friends so after a while my friend and I were skating and my mom came up behind us. When she came up behind us a girl was skiting backwards and she banged into my mom. When she bumped into my mom my mom fell backwards and fell. The girl asked if she was ok and if she needed anyone. At first my mom said no, but then she yelled at the girl and told her to go get help. So the girl went to get help and I went to get my dad. At first my dad just told me to go skate again but he didn’t hear me so I had to go into the foofd thing and tell him and he came. The ride to home was two hours away so when we got to the doctor’s office it was about 6:00. We sat there and when they came to tellus we could go in they x-rayed my mom. Of course I wanted to go but the doctor said no. When my mom came back she didn’t know if it was broken but the doctor cme in he said it was broken. Before I knew it my mom’s arm was all wrapped up. About two weeks later when I was at Junior Girl Scouts my mom came with a pink cast.I was the first to sign it and when my friend slapt over she signed it to.

  57. hello santa i went ice skating ages ago and i liked it but when i went when i was little i didnt like it because i kept falling over. i was only little then though.

  58. I AM LAUGHING MY HEAD OF BECAUSE OF THAT STORY I THINK I KNOW WHY HE STOPPED TELLIN JOKES BECAUSE HE WAS NERVOUSE. I THINK IT IS OK TO BE NERVOUSE BUT TRY NOT TO MAKE ENEYBODY ELSE TO BE NERVOUSE SO THEY CAN HAVE A GOOD TIME ASWELL. I WENT SKATEING ONCE AND I FELL STRAIGHT ON MY BUM (WHOOPS!)AND ALL MY FRIENDS LAUGHED AT ME BUT I GOT UP AND MY FRIENDS HELPED ME BUT NOW I AM FINE AND I CAN SKATE REALLY WELL AND I ENJOY IT SO KEEP IT UP AND YOU WILL BECOME REALLY GOOD AT IT XX

  59. Wow Clumsy sure is clumsy 😉 and I can’t wait until Christmas because it is my Favorite time of the year. Not just because Santa comes but Jesus was born! :)

  60. the joke about the ice was so funny, I almost fell out of bed!!!! It`s weird elves would go skating. I know it probably took a while for Clumsy to skate,but how did the other elves do?

  61. WOW! That is SO COOL! 😉 I wish I could live with you. You must live in your own paridise!!!!!! 😉 😉 :)

  62. I think it would be hilarios to se e little people fall over on ice, and to see them to cool tricks!

    Merry Christmas
