Elf Sparks Takes a Summer Staycation

August 24, 2014

Hi, I’m Sparks! I’m an elf here at the North Pole. Most of the year, my elf friends and I are hard at work making toys for all the good boys and girls in the world, but we get to relax a little bit in the summer, just like the kids do. This summer we’ve been taking advantage of all the fun things to do around our home and enjoying our vacation without worrying about travel. And what a terrific time we’ve been having!

It’s all about the toys here at the North Pole, but that doesn’t mean we have to build them every day. Someone’s got to let Santa know what toys are fun and which ones aren’t. That’s where we elves come in. We’ve all been play-testing a pile of new toys that might appear under the Christmas trees later this year. We spend days playing with each one, and get to tell Santa which ones are the most fun.

Last week everyone was excited to watch the Reindeer Games. It’s an annual event that happens in the middle of each summer. The reindeer have all sorts of competitions, such as highest leap into the sky or pulling the heaviest sleigh. We all have our favorites, and we’ve even been wearing t-shirts with the faces of the Reindeer Games stars.

The rest of the time we’ve been having fun just like the boys and girls do when they’re out of school. We climb trees, although ours are Christmas trees, and it’s kind of scratchy up there. We love to lay out on blankets after dark and stargaze. The reindeer get to see all the stars when they fly, but we elves are usually in bed after dark, so it’s a treat to stay up. We’ve also been eating some great fresh fruits and vegetables. Milk and cookies are nice, but it’s great to take a healthy break!

It’s almost fall, so our summer vacation is coming to an end. It’s been a nice break, but we love what we do during the rest of the year. We’ll be going back to toymaking starting tomorrow, singing happy tunes, creating gifts and helping parents, help elves, help Santa to create Santa letters for children around the world.
