Santa’s Hawaiian holiday

One day at the North Pole, Santa was packing his bag for a vacation. Santa really needed a holiday because he was having a very busy year. Santa and Mrs Claus had been looking forward to this adventure to Hawaii all year!

Mrs Claus was a bit nervous to go on a holiday so close to Christmas but they decided to go anyway. So not to be noticed at the airport, they decided to use the reindeer and their sleigh for travel. With a sprinkle of magic dust they could travel anywhere and not be noticed!

They were relaxing on the beach and enjoying their vacation when all of a sudden they got a phone call from Jasper the head elf, telling them that they needed to come home very quickly. Several of the elves had fallen very ill and toy production was down. Santa and Mrs Clause sadly packed their bags and hopped into their sleigh and headed home.

When they finally got home they went to check on the elves and discovered that they were not actually ill, but instead had just missed them so much. This was the first time both Santa and Mrs Claus had left them all alone.

So they all went inside and enjoyed some hot cocoa and fresh chocolate mint cookies that Mrs Claus made. After their bellies were full, they all went to bed because they had so much to get ready before Christmas which was in only two days.


Cookies, carrots and milk

One Christmas night Santa came to deliver our presents and he went to go and get his cookies and milk but there were no cookies! Also, there were no carrots. So Dasher, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and you can never forget the one and only Rudolph the red nose reindeer. If they heard they would be devastated.

So once Santa left, the people that lived in that house got out of bed and started making cookies and cutting up carrots and put them on a plate and put the plate on the table right by the Christmas tree. By the time that Santa came back there were cookies and carrots but no milk. So Santa left again and they got out of bed again and got a glass cup and poured some milk into it and set it on the table by the Christmas tree. When Santa came back he drank his milk and ate his cookies and brought the carrots outside.

When he got outside Rudolph was gone! So Santa looked all over but he still could not find Rudolph. He was not anywhere to be found, but there was only one place that he could be: in the kitchen. So they went into the kitchen and there he was eating a carrot and his red nose was glowing so the people that were sleeping saw the glowing nose so they got out of bed and started laughing.


The day the elves quit

December 26th the elves quit! Every year, no break. They were mad because they always built toys while Santa slept or ate cookies. Now that he was back in the North Pole after delivering all their toys to the boys and girls around the world, they all hopped on the sleigh and took off to Hawaii.

Santa had just stopped the sleigh and hopped out waving his hand. They just jumped into it and took off. Santa was pretty surprised. “What are they doing and why did they leave me?”

They arrived in Hawaii. All the elves partied on the beach. They were all having fun, but they started to think about Santa and wondered what he was doing. They wondered who would make the toys for all the boys and girls. They all hopped back on the sleigh and flew back to the North Pole. When they got back, Santa was looking everywhere for them. He saw the sleigh zip down onto the ground in front of the shop. They hopped out of the sleigh thinking about all that they needed to get done.

Mrs Claus offered them hot chocolate, but the elves were too busy working. They didn’t notice her offering hot chocolate. Usually they just listened.

The elves looked up and told Mr and Mrs Claus they were sorry because they didn’t realize who was going to make the toys and why it was such an important job. They all had hot chocolate after that and after, everyone was happy.


Santa’s journey around the world

Casey Wilson
Westview Elementary School

It was Christmas Eve and Santa was getting ready to go. He said goodbye to Mrs Claus and all the elves. Then like always he gets onto his sleigh and goes off. But this time was different. Santa had only travelled three miles over the icy mountains and was now in Brazil! The leafy trees was the very worst place to crash, not including the poisonous spiders, but he did, Santa had crashed!

After 5,000 hours (that’s what it seemed like) Santa had finally fixed the sleigh using the oil and brick trick one of his elves had taught him but he still had to go around the world the long way. Past Candy-cane Lane into the Sahara desert into Peppermint Patty colasac into the great wall of China and then he ended up at your house and everyone else, until he would fly back to have hot chocolate with the elves. Santa felt relieved that he had done his job making children happy all over the world, but little did he know that a girl had snuck onto his sleigh!

Merry Christmas!
