Santa’s Red Hat

Posted by Santa Claus on December 4th, 2011

Santa Claus' famous red hat and snowball

Santa's red hat

It is fun to work here at the North Pole.  We all love it.  But sometimes it can be hard for the elves.

Do you know what it’s like to feel like you are not good enough?  Well sometimes our elves feel that way too.

One day I checked on the elves making toys.  There were elves making toy robots with red lights.  There were other elves making shiny flutes and drums.  Great work!

Then, I saw Mouse the Littlest Elf sitting in the corner all alone.  She looked so sad!

I asked her what was wrong.  She told me that she had tried to make a shiny robot with the other elves.  It was too hard.  The buttons would not work.

She told me she tried to make a flute.  But it would not make a sound.

Mouse looked so sad.

“You don’t have to be good at making those toys, Mouse!”  I said.  “What do you like to make?  What things make you smile?”

Mouse thought about it. Then she showed me the scarf she had on.

“Well, I made this, but it’s just a scarf.”  It was a very nice, red scarf.  It looked very warm.  It had puffy white balls on the ends like snowballs.

“That’s great!”  I said.  “In fact, I need something warm for my head while I fly!”  Mouse smiled a great big smile and told me that she could help me!

From that day on, Mouse makes me a new red hat with a white puff like a snow ball, for every Christmas.  And she is wonderful at her job!

And now you know why I wear my famous red hat!

Merry Christmas!
