The Cold Clause

Posted by Santa Claus on December 19th, 2011

Now that it is so close to Christmas, I want to be sure that I do not get sick!  A few elves have caught the cold, so I have to be extra careful!

Would you like to find out if I am going to be healthy for Christmas?

Do not worry.  I am sure I am going to be healthy for Christmas!  I have some tricks up my sleeve.

Of course, the first thing I did was get my flu shot!

Another trick is that I make sure to wash my hands… often!

Today I worked in the shop with three elves that had the sniffles!  We even worked on the same chess set.

When it was time for a lunch break, I washed my hands with nice hot water.  I sang “Jingle Bells” as I scrubbed.  This helped me to make sure I scrubbed my hands long enough.

I also make sure I drink my orange juice.  Orange juice is full of something called Vitamin C.  Do you know what Vitamin C is?  Well, it is something that helps your body stay healthy.

If I do get sick, I use these same tricks.  I also try to go to bed early so that I can get lots of sleep.

If I get sick, chicken noodle soup and hot tea also help me to feel better.

I guess if I do get sick I could always let Clumsy the Elf drive the sleigh this year.  I know he has wanted to try it for some time now.  He calls it “the Cold Clause”.  HHHOL!  (That means “Ho!  Ho!  Ho!  Out Loud!”)

But I don’t think I will be sick this year.  Besides, I go to see the Elf Doctor in just a few days!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  What do you do to keep from getting sick?  Do you think I should let Clumsy the Elf drive the sleigh if I get sick?  You can click here to tell me or, scroll down to see what other people have written!

P.P.S.  My name really is Santa Claus, not Clause!  That was just a silly joke in a movie!  HHHOL!

    My friend Makayla said:

    I don’t think Clumsy the Elf should drive.Mabay Mrs.Claus should if you get sick Santa.OR……. Any other Elf can.Now I’m NOT saying that I don’t like Clumsy the Elf I do like him,…even though I NEVER met Clumsy the Elf,but thats just my OPINION.

    My friend Jonah said:

    Don’t let him do the whole thing if you get sick, but you can let him do little on some test runs. It would be fine for him to fly a bit on a test run.

    Hey Santa, if your sick than don’t let clumsy drive the sleigh! But its unfair to keep clumsy from wanting to drive the sleigh so if your not sick let clumsy have a little turn at drving it :) But don’t let him drive it the whole way around the world or he will probably crash the sleigh with all the hard work the eleves maden will go to waste! Good luck santa and get well soon if your sick! Love you xoxoxo

    Hi Santa! When I’m sick, I go to bed an hour early. I take medicine and have chicken soup for all my meals. Also, if clumsy the elf isn’t realy Clumsy, then I think it’s fine that he deliver’s presents! Just so he doesn’t get confused, write the name of the person on the present! Then he can just look and see who’s it is! Merry Christmas!
