Five Months Until Christmas

Five Months Until Christmas

Greetings! Here it is, the 24th of the month and we’re down now to just five months before Christmas. That’s crazy! We’re on the downhill side to Christmas.

We’re all moved! Santa’s new workshop is now completely filled with elves of all types and things are running at top speed.

When crews got done with the move over there at the old workshop I have to tell you that things seemed kind of sad. That has been Santa’s workshop for decades and decades. Now it sat there empty and dark – nothing happening within its walls.

Until today.

The morning Santa announced a new job for his old workshop. Santa announced that the old workshop would be turned into an expansion of the Wrapping Department.

It is a brilliant move and it makes all the sense in the world. After all, Santa’s new workshop is all about speed and efficiency and if those guys were going to make more toys faster it would only make sense to expand the Wrapping Department, too.

It is a good fit, too, because the old workshop is an ideal space to wrap presents. It has big workbenches and flat surfaces. There a lots of places for tools and elves.

Santa also announced that with the opening of the old workshop as an expansion of the Wrapping Department that he would need several thousand new elves to work there.

Elves by the hundreds are lined up to apply for new jobs in the Wrapping Department. It is a well known fact that the Wrapping Department is the “fast track” to Santa’s Workshop in the world of elves. To get to Santa’s workshop is an elf dream. It takes many years to get there. But Santa seems to really like Wrapping Department Elves a great deal and some big promotions have come to elves from the Wrapping Department.

Elf Crash Murphy was a Wrapping Department elf before he became a famous North Pole radio reporter. And Elf Hugo worked in Wrapping for years before he took charge of the North Pole Post Office. In fact, every elf that is someone at the North Pole once worked in Wrapping.

So it is a happy and busy time here for many elves at the North Pole as many have new jobs and things are moving along better than ever.

I can tell already, it’s going to be a great Christmas!

PS – Note to Kris to in Indiana: Good idea about the replay of the Christmas Eve radio broadcast. I will see if Santa agrees we can do it on a weekend in the months ahead.

Santa Plans a New Workshop

Santa Plans a New Workshop

Santa's WorkshopSanta announced today that a new workshop is planned to be constructed in 2018.

Santa’s workshop has been remodeled many times since its construction more than 170 years ago. But never has it been replaced. The new workshop will be built behind the current structure. When it is completed the old workshop will be remodeled yet again and will be used as a backup facility for special projects.

Elf Bernard, head elf in Santa’s workshop, expressed great excitement over the news. “The workshop is one of the last places at the North Pole to get a modern upgrade,” he said. “We love that old building with the history of serving Santa and all he does. But we are ready for a new time. We are ready to take on new technology, to expand our skills and to be more efficient in meeting the needs of modern generations.”

In his announcement today Santa Claus admitted that he considered tearing the old building down altogether but he feels the building is still very useful.

We do not know what special projects are planned for the old building.

It is expected that the new workshop will take several months to construct and that elves may not be able to move into the new workshop until sometime next fall.

Until then the old workshop will remain in operation.

Please stay with us here in the New Year. We expect a lot more news to report in the months ahead.

North Pole Falling Behind

North Pole Falling Behind

Happy Monday!

We’re trying our best to be positive today. But the news is pretty rough.

In a production meeting very early this morning it was revealed that what was once a promising season has now become a challenge.

Santa’s Workshop is officially behind their goal.

That makes every other department suspect too, because so many other departments depend upon the workshop staying on their game.

But the Bah Humbug virus has reduced the level of elf hours by a significant total – and you just can’t take that many elves away without affecting things.

But there is no reason to panic.

Santa called in to the meeting. He stressed the positive news. He reminded us that many of the elves who first got sick are now starting to return to work.

He reminded us that we still have just under two weeks to get the job done.

He told us the challenge will be great but that the goal can still be met.

Here’s to better news to report in the days ahead.
