A bit of a suprise for today’s diary! When you read it you will understand why.
Merry Christmas everybody and have a wonderful day tomorrow!
Christmas Eve 2009
Hello children of the World!
Its Mrs Claus here. Santa cannot write his diary tonight as he is a little bit busy! I think you all know what he is doing. If you are good and go to bed early he will be visiting you soon and putting all your presents in your sacks and stockings. I know you will be so excited right now, Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year. There is one thing that Santa and I hope that you will hold dear and remember throughout the Christmas period, and indeed throughout the year, and that is to always spare some time to think if there is a way that you can help the less fortunate children, people and creatures in the world. Sometimes it is the smallest thing that can make a difference to a person who is not so lucky – a smile and a kind word is a great place to start!
Here at the North Pole, there is much celebrating! Another fantastic year of toymaking and a simply perfect departure for Santa on his big Christmas Eve trip. Rudolph is leading the sleigh tonight as the weather is not fantastic here at the North Pole and the weather forecast in certain places around the world has been better, with blizzards forecast in twenty one Countries and part of the Atlantic ocean!
Once the Elves had loaded the last sacks into the sleigh, the reindeer had been given a last magical feed and drink, Santa had put his best outfit on (and the extra thermal underwear I insisted upon!) and the Senior Elves had completed all the safety checks on the sleigh and the reindeer it was time for take off! Santa boarded the sleigh and all the Elves and I gathered around the sleigh in the Departure Hall. The Elves were all cheering and clapping, and singing Jingle Bells, the sound was a delight to the ears! I gave Santa a kiss and stepped back from the sleigh. It was time! The village clock struck midnight, Santa stood up in the sleigh and gave his familiar cry, ‘On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and Vixen; On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen and of course Rudolph! Merry Christmas everybody!’ The reindeers hooves sparkled and fizzed and they shreiked with pure delight. They broke into a gallop and headed down and out of the Departure Hall. Santa is on his way!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all from everyone here at the North Pole!
