The Elves are hard at work, making sure that all of  the toys are completed on schedule.

Santa has a lot of friends that like to visit him at the North Pole. You might know some of them…

You probably recognize these sweet bears from their Coca Cola commercials. They are regular celebrities around these parts.

Look carefully and you might see Elmo. He was one of Santa’s most popular toys. Another big shot. Ahem…

Baby New Year and Father Time are crazy for snow cones! They just can’t get enough.

Of course, Frosty lives here! He opened up his own business. He now runs Frosty’s Sleds ‘n Saucers. He’s really fast. If you look close you can see a little blur… That’s him!

Oh look… Dad’s taking the little ones out to get a new pair of shoes. Elves are expert Shoemakers, don’tcha know?

He looks a bit frazzled. Kids will do that to you. I bet he wishes Mom wasn’t working so late at the Post Office.

Oh… One last thing…

Even Santa and the Elves know that JESUS is the real “Reason for the Season.”

Whatever else be lost among the years, Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing: Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears, Let us hold close one day, remembering Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men. Let us get back our childlike faith again.Grace Noll Crowell
