We kick off our celebrations at the North Pole today with the Elf Parade. Everyone came out with their tricycles and had a great time.
The guys in the North Pole newsroom even put together a special report about the parade:[powerpress]
There are lots of other things going on here at the North Pole. It is kind of our last play day before Christmas. So elves are building snowmen, playing football, and sledding a lot on what is actually a beautiful day here at the North Pole.
Of course, many are still involved in decorating their homes and Christmas trees today so it is not unusual that not everyone was at the parade or playing around today.
Thanksgiving is an important day for Santa and he insists that we spend it together as a North Pole family. We’ll play a lot of games today, eat a lot of great food and, of course, we top it off with the lighting ceremony tonight.
But on everyone’s mind is Operation Merry Christmas, which begins tomorrow. It is the start of the official countdown to Santa’s launch and it is a very important day to us here at the North Pole.
