The Christmas Elves Skating Party

Posted by Santa Claus on December 11th, 2010

Elves love to go skating.  I think it is because they love the hot chocolate that Mrs. Claus 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.

Clumsy the Elf 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 Santa Claus, 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!)

    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.

    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’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!
