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!

    I try not to get sick by drinking lots of tea and vitamin C.I also take little chuable vitamins.And when I go out in winter I always put on my scarf that santa gave me one year and I put on my hat my vest a jumper and my warm winter coat,I also put on my boots and my gloves.But not just at winter time, I always put on the right clothes so I won’t get sick.I also try to be happy all the time because happiness helps you not to get sick.And if I do get sick happiness also helps to make me feel better.That is how I try not to get sick.

    When I get sick I sometimes stay home from school. I lay in my mom’s big bed and watch TV. But this year I am trying to not miss a day of school starting at 3rd grade. So if I get sick I will go to school for a little bit and then go home. My mom will have to send a note or email in first so my teacher knows.

    My friend Asher said:

    Santa, We appreciate Clumsy’s willingness to be your replacement if you are sick, but we would prefer that you stay healthy and drive yourself to our house. We are not sure Clumsy is as qualified as he thinks he is. IT has taken you many years of practice to get the trip just right. If Clumsy does drive please take a picture.

    My friend Amelia said:

    Santa please dont get sick all the children are depending on you and if you do get sick maybe give clumsy a go maybe just for a ride around the workshop and see how he goes dont just let hime ride the sleigh around the world for the first time you will all crash and that will not be good
    Keep washing your hands and drinking that orange juice maybe you will be skinner this christmas im just kiddingyou look good just the way you are.

    My friend John Paul said:

    You should keep fit and active. Also keep yourself nice and warm on cold days. If I were you I would not want Clumsy to drive the sleigh he might accidentally crash the sleigh and he won’t be able to deliver the presents without a sleigh.

  51. 108
    My friend Jason said:

    I don’t think that you should let him drive because what my dad always says when I want to drive, ” if you drive, we all would be hanging from the crotch of a tree somewhere.” So if you are smart like my dad, don’t let him drive (no affence clumsy)!

  52. 107
    My friend Chance said:

    Santa Claus, please do not let Clumsy drive the sleigh, because then he will crash it, and no one will want that! I suggest you keep healthy with your clever tricks. Merry Christmas, and I will see you in 4 days!

    My friend nicole said:

    i say dont because it has the name clumsy in its not fair to the other elves. and if clumsy did wont he get tired at one point. you have to right santa? …. well love you santa!!!!

  57. 102
    My friend ANNYOMOUS said:

    When i get sick i usally sit down and watch t.v and have chicken nooled soup:)

    and when i get sick i usally get really tired so mostly i just sleep alday then the next day i actullay feel a little bit better and i can do little bit more like walk around and stuff

    and if you do get sick i think you should let clumsy do sleigh but then at the back of my brain i am kinda wondering because his name is clumsy :)
