The lights were on and elves were back at work at 2am local time as the final push in this week of Christmas begins at the North Pole.
Elf Bernard and his team in the workshop quickly organized all the elves returning to work and began to discuss shifting elves from other departments to help in the workshop.
Some elves are very excited to help in the workshop.
Elf Denton Barney, an elf who usually works as a snow plow driver at the North Pole, plans to ask for an assignment in the workshop after his regular shifts working snow removal.
“I’m going to hopefully work the model train department,” Denton said. “I love trains and have many of my own. Making new trains for kids who might get them for Christmas would be a lot of fun this week”.
Elf Bernard doesn’t know yet if he can accommodate such special requests. He needs to see how the train department is doing before assigning elves to it. He said that he frankly knows of big needs in the video game department especially to help package new systems and software.
We don’t know how they will work all this stuff out but they are trying to organize it right now as we speak.
Merry Greetings and guess what? It’s only 1 month now until Christmas Eve!
Hearts are just soaring today at the North Pole.
I cannot tell you how happy people here are to know that Santa is safe and on the job.
Rarely have I seen so much enthusiasm at the North Pole as I do right now.
Everything just feels right. We had a great Thanksgiving, every department is ready, the North Pole looks great, the reindeer are busy training, and things are just lining up for a fun, fun time this year.
And Santa’s workshop? They are busy like crazy today. And the toys are just pumping out of there at an incredible rate. Elf Bernard says he’s never seen as fast a start as he sees this year in the workshop.
I was just over at Santa’s workshop and saw Mrs. Claus meeting with Elf Bernard. She is very happy with how things are going over there and Elf Bernard seemed to be thrilled with the congratulations that Mrs. Claus gave to him.
Elf Bernard is kind of a funny guy. He’s a little grumpy now and then and we don’t see him smile much. But he was smiling today.
Santa’s workshop has a huge job, as you know.
Part of what makes their job so hard is so many kids change their minds about what they want for Christmas.
If you know what you want, it helps Elf Bernard and his elves in Santa’s workshop if you tell Santa want it is that you want.
Santa reads all that mail, makes lots of lists and those lists kind of become production orders for Elf Bernard and his team.
So the earlier you give your final wishlist to Santa the easier you make it for Elf Bernard and the elves over there in the workshop.
