Dear 1 Daniel
What’s going on at the North Pole?
We’ve got elves making and ordering presents. (We actually don’t know how to make some of those complicated electronic toys; we’re lucky if we can just plug them in properly.) Elves are also wrapping gifts and putting them in our big warehouse where each shelf has the name of a child and where that child lives. I saw your name and shelf there, just this morning, with a couple of presents already waiting!
We also have reindeer practicing their take-offs and landings (important to get right, especially on short rooftops), and Mrs. Claus is supervising the Naughty and Nice List updates, making sure that no child is forgotten. People don’t realize it, but Mrs. Claus keeps this place running!
As for me? Well, I’m sitting here at my desk writing this letter and watching the snow falling from the sky. Did you know the sun set here at the end of September? Really! It’s nighttime for all of winter. We won’t have a sunrise again until around the middle of March. I’ll bet you see some sunshine where you live, right?
I’m excited to get to your place in 2 Denver and bring you your presents on December 24th!
