Every night, before bed, I go to the reindeer barn. Every night I read the reindeer all the great messages and emails you write us. It is something we do every night now! Even the elves come to listen too.
Yes, the elves and reindeer are nestled snug in their beds, while stories by Santa Claus about your day are read!
Every night, everyone gets nice and comfy. The reindeer nestle together on their straw beds. The elves nestle together with their hot cocoa. Mrs. Claus comes too.
She brings fresh carrots for the reindeer. She brings nice warm cookies and hot cocoa for the elves and me. She even brings those fancy imported marshmallows for our hot cocoa!
When everyone is quiet and nestled snug in their beds, I get ready to read. I sit down in my special chair. Then I put on my special glasses. Then I start to read.
Before I read a message, I always say who wrote it. Whenever I say a name everyone always shouts out “Nice List! Hurray!” or “Oh, oh, Naughty List!”. After the elves say “Nice List! Hurray!”, they all do “Cheers!” with their little elf mugs of cocoa.
I better not tell you what the elves do after they say “Oh, oh, Naughty List!”. (Maybe you can guess . What do you think they do?).
Then everyone gets quiet again to hear what you wrote. They love to hear about the fun things you do at Christmas. They love to hear about the fun things you do with your family. They love to hear about how you share the spirit of Christmas. But mostly, they just love to hear from you!
Then I ask the elf who was watching you today to stand up. The elf tells everyone all about your day! The elf tells us what good things you did. The elf tells us if you did any naughty things (Oh! Oh!). The elf even tells us if you did any silly things!
Every time the elf tells us a good thing you did, the other elves all do “Cheers!” with their little elf mugs of cocoa. I better not tell you what the elves do if you did any naughty things! (What do you think they do?). If you did any silly things, then we all laugh!
Sometimes the little reindeer and elves fall asleep. Sometimes we laugh too hard and wake them up. But, after I have read all your messages and emails, they brush their teeth. Then, we tuck them into bed. We give them a big kiss good night. Their Mommies and Daddies give them a big kiss too. We always leave the star on top of the Christmas tree on for them before we close the door. Nighty, Night!
P.S. What special messages do you have for the reindeer and elves before they go to bed? (Scroll down to leave your message for me or to see what others have written!)
