After Christmas at the North Pole

Posted by Santa Claus on December 27th, 2011

Life is crazy at the North Pole.  Before Christmas the elves race to finish the toys.  The reindeer are busy training.  Toys are piled up to the ceiling.

But after Christmas things are a little different!After Christmas the elves have just a bit more work to do.  Some of them clean up the empty workshops.

Others pop in to the stables with fresh hay.  They like to make sure the reindeer are comfy.  It’s the elves way of saying “Thank You” for the hard work.

Then the work is FINALLY done.  The elves, reindeer and I all get to relax.

These days are some of my favourite of the whole year.  The Pole is quiet and calm.  The reindeer usually sleep a lot and take it easy.  The trip around the world is hard work!  It takes them a few days to get their energy back.

The elves know they will start on next year’s toys soon enough.  They sure enjoy this vacation!  They play board games and go for walks.  They build snowmen and catch up with friends they’ve been too busy to see.  And they eat yummy treats by the fire.

Mrs. Claus and I get to sit around in our pajamas, drink hot chocolate and share our stories of the season.  I love the hustle and bustle of Christmas.  But I also look forward to some quiet time with my North Pole family once the gifts are delivered.

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus
