1.Getting Santa’s Sleigh Ready
I can’t believe all the activity at the Merry Christmas Village! The elfins are moving so fast that they seem to be in a blur and I feel like I’m standing still. This is the best time of the year, however because I can really feel the excitement. I can especially tell from the many letters that children are sending that most everyone is anxious for Christmas!

To add to the excitement we’ve been singing a lot of Christmas songs too. Mrs. Claus has chosen the Silver Streak sleigh for toy deliveries this year. The elves are now polishing the skis and putting in the new GPS electronics. Elf Chinn said he will soon start filling the sleigh full of presents. By Christmas Eve he will have double-checked in all the toys. To begin, we’ll move the sleigh into the Village’s Toy Barn. There is a big platform that we set the sleigh on that makes it easier to load the sleigh. Plus, it’s nice and warm in here too!

I’ve asked the elves to add some of these new bright red-colored LED lights. I understand these lights will really help light up the sky as we’re flying over towns and cities – plus, it will help pilots from all the aircraft we see and pass to know where we are – and where we are heading! You should look for flashing red lights in the sky Christmas Eve night– you never know!

2.Santa’s Sleigh Practice Flights
The elves are beginning to take more and more practice flights with the reindeer. The take-offs and landings are so important because we have to be careful on the roofs of so many homes. Practice is very important! Elf McJenny had loaded the sleigh full of sand bags to simulate the extra weight for when we are loaded up with toys and other wonderful presents on Christmas Eve. Elf McJenny was in the back of the sleigh with Elf Ephem, who was along for the ride as an observer. Pilot Elf Eloise was at the reins steering the reindeer. She took the reindeer quickly up to 10,000 feet and they performed a very sharp banking U-turn. Unfortunately, one of the sandbags came loose during this turn and fell out of the sleigh! Elf McJenny didn’t panic for she signaled to Rudolph and pointed to the falling sandbag, and she also yelled to Elf Eloise what had happened. Rudolph and Eloise immediately put the reindeer and sleigh into a steep dive. They were going extremely fast straight down but they caught up to the falling sandbag, and Elf McJenny was able to reach out and grab it in mid-fall! It was an amazing stunt!

When they landed they realized they had forgotten about Elf Ephem! They found him shaking underneath the seat with a look of terrible fright on his face. This was his first flight in the Merry Christmas sleigh, and I think he’s volunteering to stay on the ground for a while! But for now he sure has a great adventure to talk about!

3.Merry Christmas Village Penguins
Kids often write and ask me about our resident penguins. I understand children’s curiosity since most penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere. However, the reindeer up here are so friendly that they easily make friends with all animals of the earth. Once the reindeer found out that penguins were experts at tobogganing they knew they had to invite penguin to become residents at the Merry-Christmas village. I’m so happy to have the penguins here – they are so fun to watch! I didn’t realize how fast these penguins could go as they slide down our mountain slopes on their bellies. And when they have races it’s often a penguin that wins.

One thing the penguins like to do is change their colors. All penguins have a white underside and a mostly black upperside. But during the Christmas season the penguins will surprise everyone by coloring themselves bright colors such as green and red. Some even put red stripes on their belly so they look like a waddling candy cane – it is so hilarious! What makes our penguins really unique are they way they can sing together. They have beautiful singing voices and we look forward to hearing them perform during the many concerts we have at the village

4.The reindeer treadmill
The reindeer at the Merry Christmas village are very health conscious. I joke with them on how they like to eat candy canes all the time, but I know they like vegetables just as much, especially carrots. They often are at practice as they hone their flying skills (not to mention the very robust air-ball games they play while flying). Yet, on the ground they also have a daily exercise routine that involves all kinds of fun activities. Recently, the elves built a very large treadmill inside reindeer exercise center. The elves installed some large screen televisions so the reindeer could watch their favorite TV programs or DVD movies as they walked on the treadmill. This treadmill was very large and 10 reindeer could easily walk on it together. They asked me to join them in a group exercise on this new treadmill. I was very amazed because the floor of this treadmill is made of real green grass! It’s like walking on a large moving soccer field. Now this is the kind of treadmill I could get used to!

5.Santa’s Christmas Socks
I have to hand it to Mrs. Claus when it comes to her being thrifty. She doesn’t waste anything, and she very diligent about recycling. She just brought me some of the warmest wool socks I’ve ever worn! She knew I’d like them because she and some of the elves made them from remnants of old sweaters that I once had. Elf McDonnegal, who is the fastest knitter around and is also in charge of the Merry Christmas Irish Sweater, Scarves, and Hats shop, broke down these old sweaters and rolled them into several balls of colorful yarn. Elf McDonnegal and some of her helper elves then set out with Mrs. Claus to knit socks as gifts for the reindeer. Fortunately for me, they had enough material left and they made an extra pair of socks for me! I hope I don’t wear these down too fast. My feet get cold too often, and these socks are so warm! I think I’ll give McDonnegal some more of my old sweaters and see what she comes up with for a new hat!
