A Ghostly North Pole

After finishing dinner, I stood up and announced, “I’m heading for the mail room to see if any letters arrived late.” “But you’re not dressed,” Anya said as she came into the room with her hands on her hips. “What do you mean?” I asked. When I looked at Anya, I was startled to see …


Invisible Elves

Excitement in the classroom was high as the Scout Elves were preparing for their return to children’s homes for the Christmas Season. As Birdie, the elf in charge, finished explaining the procedures for remaining still when the children were present, Elfanzo asked, “Wouldn’t it be easier if we were invisible?” Tiny wasted no time adding, …


Making a Difference

“Things are really starting to pick up,” remarked Prince pushing open the door to the break room. “Well it is October, and we only have two and a half months to get toys made before the big night,” replied Peppermint as she picked up some cookies and hot chocolate laid out for the elves.

The Magic of Christmas

After watching “The Christmas Chronicles,” several elves and I had gathered in the recreation room, just outside the village theater, to talk about the movie, when Houser exclaimed, “These Santa movies never seem to get it right!” “I know.

If I Could Be Anything

“Can someone please pass me a graham cracker,” Quinten hollered over the chatter of elves around the fire.

Santa’s Favorite Elf

Popping my head into the kitchen, the aroma was amazing. “Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies make my mouth water,” I announced loudly while patting my stomach. “Don’t want to disappoint you,” Doheny said, slipping me a cookie. “Don’t worry, Santa.

Blitzen Loses Race

“I just don’t understand,” Reiney, the Elf who takes care of Cupid said. “I know Blitzen is the fastest of all our reindeer, yet he lost the race today with Polar Pete. Do you think he will do better in the swimming competition?” “Maybe he was not feeling well. After all, reindeer can run as …


Trouble Sleeping

As I walked out of the tunnel from our North Pole Village, I saw Nippy, Frosty the Snowman’s cousin. Noticing a tired look on his face, I asked, “Are you okay Nippy? You don’t look so good today.
