Jessie’s Christmas in July

Since the elves are too busy to celebrate Christmas Day Santa and Molly host a Christmas party in July.   Jessie loves the party.  Below are a list of her favorite things about the celebration.

  • Decorated plastic palm trees.  They are lit up around Claus square.sun
  • Sun shaped sugar cookies with yellow and orange sprinkles.
  • Peach cider by the ocean.
  • Secret Santa gifts for all of the young elves.  Jessie likes to watch the smiles and laughter as the gifts are opened.
  • A bonfire on the tundra.  The elves roast marshmallows and make Smores.
  • The skidoo parade down Main Street.  The skidoos are all decorated and the elves wear costumes as they show their machines.
  • Sunny cards.  Similar to Christmas cards they send the receiver good wishes.  It is traditional to have a sun on the front of the card with other designs added.
  • Agility races for the dog sled teams.  Jessie likes to run with Angel’s team.  She’s never won a prize yet but she keeps trying.
  • A new doggie bed.  Molly replaces Jessie’s bed every year on the holiday.
  • Hamburgers on the barbecue.  Santa cooks them just right.
  • The Christmas music contest.  Jessie especially likes to listen to the choirs.

July 31st – North Pole’s Christmas in July Sidewalk Extravaganza

Jessie sat on a couch with Santa.  She was hot, bored and itchy.  Early in the morning Molly had woken Jessie and put her ugly Christmas sweater on.  Then she had dragged Santa and Jessie to the town square for the Christmas in July Sidewalk Extravaganza.

Molly,Santa and Jessie had shopped in almost every store in town.  They picked up stocking stuffers for Molly’s family and a few small trinkets for Molly’s elf friends. But, Jessie thought that the real purpose of the sale was for the town residence to gossip and socialize.  Jessie had heard three times this morning that the Post Office Pete had fallen and broken his nose.    She’d also heard four times that another leak had been found in the manufacturing facilities walls.
