Circling the News received a letter from the North Pole.
Dear Mrs. Editor,
We are Santa’s elves, and our boss is really busy, but we wanted you to know that Santa will fly with the reindeer and Mrs. Claus on December 17 to Pacific Palisades.
We elves wanted to come, too, because we heard there will be hot chocolate: we like hot chocolate.
We heard that there will be dancers from Fancy Feet, that Gerry Blanck’s students will perform, that there will be crafts and even European Pancakes from BlinBlin. Even though Mrs. Claus makes lots of cookies, we have never had food from BlinBlin.
Santa told us it’s always so much fun in Simon Meadow because there are balloons and even reingoat and Christmas trees everywhere – but we still have so many toys left to make, so we have to stay at the North Pole.
This elf is working on trains today and my friend is working on Legos and my other friend is making Glo Pixies Dolls.
Santa said the nice people in the Palisades have been celebrating Ho!Ho!Ho! for 73 years. That’s a lot of years. Most of us elves are at least 1,000 years old, but we have some new babies in the shop that are about 100 years old.
Tell all the children in Pacific Palisades to come and see Santa so he’s not lonely. Tell everyone that this visit doesn’t cost anything – mom and dad will like that.
(Editor’s note: The Clauses will fly into Pacific Palisades on Saturday, December 17 and land on the Fire Station roof. Mr. and Mrs. will then be transported to Simon Meadow via the Fire Station 69 truck and be ready for photos from 2 to 4 p.m. There will be arts and crafts and lots of entertainment. This event is organized by community members for the community. Parking is available at Temescal Canyon Park or in the nearby public parking lot.)
