Santa called an emergency meeting of Santa’s Council today.
Santa’s council is made up of the head elf of every department. (That includes me).
We all had to get into uniform – which is weird for the week of Christmas in July.
So, yes, I was in the meeting and, no, I can’t tell you what it was about. Santa will make that announcement on Saturday.
But I will tell you that Santa gave some very specific instructions about each department in the months leading up to Christmas. Once Christmas in July is over, we’re going to be hard back at work.
Oh, Elf Frieda finally won the Jingle Bells singing contest. She lasted 4 days, 4 hours, 53 minutes and 25 seconds – a little short of the record but pretty impressive for an elf trying it for the first time this year.
They took her out on a stretcher but she gave a big-thumbs up and said she was okay.
I’m sure she will be there for the awards ceremony on Monday after she has had a little sleep and maybe something to drink.
Over at Kringle Radio we will be replaying the broadcast of Santa’s flight around the world last Christmas Eve. That’s become a tradition here for our Christmas in July celebration. And it’s FREE.
Just come back right here on July 23rd and catch the broadcast in progress. We’ll have the link to listen in then posted.
It’s the coolest thing. Sit in a dark room with an air conditioner going, your Christmas tree up, your curtains drawn or shades closed, maybe put on a candle or get a hot mug of cocoa going — and then tune in to Kringle Radio right here and pretend it is Christmas Eve all over the world. You’ll hear it just as it happened last Christmas Eve, with more than 50 straight hours of music and breaking news.
Speaking of breaking news, the radio guys have a special announcement below for Christmas in July.
In other news, the Jingle Bells Singing Contest Continues. We’re into day #3 and we’re about 14 hours into it. We’re down to about 4 elves now. We might have a winner to announce today!
