One early Saturday morning ...
My elves, Jacob and Emily, came to get me and take me to the North Pole. They flew me over land and water straight to it. It was the most beautiful place I had ever seen. Everything was covered in sparkling white snow. There was a forest full of evergreen trees. Each tree in the forest was an exact copy of every Christmas tree on Earth. I got to make toys of every kind. It was fun!
I also got to feed the reindeer their oats, corn and hay. I got to touch the elves, and they did not lose their magic! It was so cool! We even got to play football. They called it the Elf Bowl!
Also, I was taken on a tour of the North Pole, where I got to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. I found out what every kid is getting! I even saw the list of who has been naughty and nice.
Turns out, the reason I am here is Santa has enemies who are trying to destroy the imagination, magic, and everything to do with Christmas. So I had to stop him. I got into a blind in the Christmas tree forest. Then the bad guy finally came out! I signaled the elves to drop the net on him and they did. It fell on him and we caught him. We explained to the bad guy that Christmas was more than Santa and toys. We explained that Christmas is a celebration of Jesus’ birthday. I told him that Christmas could be explained by the three Fs. That is faith, family and facial hair. Santa commented that he also saw that episode of Duck Dynasty and he really likes that show. That day the bad guy changed his evil ways and started helping Santa, telling everyone the meaning of Christmas and started growing a beard.
Remember how I said enemies. That’s plural. So then I had to catch another bad dude. That really stunk! So then I went to the bad guy’s hideout. I yelled “Come out with your hands up.” He came out with his hands up. Then the elves dropped the net on him. Haha! Allen - 2, Bad Dudes - 0! This guy had elf-napped a lot of elves! All those elves got saved! That was awesome!
Then it was time for me to go home because I had homework to finish. I went home, and I will never forget that day for the rest of my life!
