Crazy News from the North Pole Barbershop

Crazy News from the North Pole Barbershop

Christmas in JulyHappy Friday!

We have some crazy news today from the North Pole Barbershop, of all places.

Elf Bob, the North Pole Barber, says that Santa cut his hair and shaved his beard there today.

That’s just crazy sauce right there.

Santa gets haircuts all the time. He’s got a lot of hair and it grows fast. But Bob said he cut it real short.

But what everyone cannot believe is that Santa shaved off his beard.

That’s just crazy. Santa LOVES his beard.

I’ve never seen him without it. I’ve seen him trim it many times before and once I even saw him trim it close, just before he went on a vacation with Mrs. Claus to visit her mother.

But a short beard to Santa is not a short beard to just about everyone else.

He’s always had a long beard.

So to think that Santa is walking around the North Pole today with a BALD face…well, it seems too much.

Come to think of it, I haven’t even seen Santa since his big meeting the other day.

I know his big announcement is coming tomorrow.

And it isn’t about his beard or his hair.

Somehow, I have a hard time believing he did it.

Rumors Swirl of a Difficult Season Ahead

Rumors Swirl of a Difficult Season Ahead

Christmas in JulyHey everyone!

Every time Santa holds one of these big meetings we have to put up with all kinds of rumors.

Right now the rumor is that it is going to be a crazy Christmas season in the months ahead.

I don’t think so. In fact, I think Santa called the meeting so it wouldn’t get crazy.

So get that out of your heads right now. Things will be fine.

I’m certain of it.


Let’s get back to Christmas-in-July, shall we? We received a lot of email about Elf Frieda.

She’s fine. I talked to her this morning and her voice is coming back.

She is very famous at the North Pole now. Everyone wants her autograph. Already elves are betting that next year Elf Frieda will break the record.

I asked Elf Frieda if she was going to try. She said she never wants to hear Jingle Bells again.

We’ll give her a few more days then I’ll ask her again. I’m sure she will change her mind.

She is, after all, an elf.

Santa Convenes Emergency Meeting of Santa’s Council

Santa Convenes Emergency Meeting of Santa’s Council

Christmas in JulyStrange news, folks!

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.

Santa Plans Big Announcement for Saturday

Santa Plans Big Announcement for Saturday

Santa AnnouncementMerry Tuesday Greetings!

We’ve made it to day #4 in the Jingle Bells Singing Contest. Just two elves remain – Elf Jasmine and Elf Frieda.

Already this is a historic contest. No girl elf has ever won the Jingle Bells Singing Contest before.

That changes, of course, the minute one of these two singing elves falls out.

You can barely hear them now. Without a microphone, you can’t hear them, in fact.

I suspect one of them is going to give up before too long. I’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, we have other news. Santa has announced that HIS big news will be announced on Saturday. That’s the 22nd.

I hope you are here for that!
