Christmas Elves’ XMAS game

Posted by Santa Claus on November 28th, 2008

The elves started doing something fun at the North Pole.  They call it “X.M.A.S.”.  “X.M.A.S.” is not the same as “Xmas”.  That is something else.

The fun thing the do is all about the . It is about the joy of giving.

Would you like to learn about the elves’ game?

The elves play a Christmas game they call “X.M.A.S.”.  The elves say “X.M.A.S.” is short for “eXchange Merriment And Spirit”.  Such silly elves!

Here is how they play “X.M.A.S.”.  One of the elves will make up a basket.  It will have all kinds of yummy things in it.  It might have candy canes.  It might have .  It might have .  It might have cocoa.  It might even have those fancy imported marshmallows!

They have lots of fun making the basket.

Then the elf will put a fancy bow on the basket.  When no one is looking she will sneak to the elf house next door.  She will put the basket down at the door.  Then, she will ring the doorbell fast and hide!  The elf that lives at the house will open the door.  And, there will be a basket full of yummy treats for them!

The elf that gets the basket then makes a new basket of treats for another elf! 

If you get a basket you put a special paper tree in your window.  When the elves are done, every single house on the block has a special paper tree in its window!  What a great sight to see!  It reminds me of how great the spirit of giving really is.

makes the best baskets.  He always thinks of the best things!  He tries to think of something new and fun every year.  Of course, I will never forget the year he left me a basket of girl’s undies by mistake!  thought it was so funny! :)

Merry Christmas!

    Yes I think the elves are very silly. The game seems like a very fair game, a very pleasent game and a very happy and joyous game. I’m sure if I got a basket I would be sooooooooo happy!

    Many kids want to talk to Santa right now. The best way to reach him is at http://emailSanta.com/email_santa.asp .

    If you’d like to talk to someone because you are sad about something then the best thing is to talk to your family about it. If you still want to talk then you can always call the great people at one of the phone numbers on this page: http://emailSanta.com/Childrens_hotlines.htm (make sure to choose a phone number for your country!). We like to think of them as “elves in training”!
