'Twas the Day After Christmas
Hi, I'm Jingles. I'm an elf. Yesterday was Christmas and we elves are helping Mr. and Mrs. Claus tidy up the house. So far, I've gotten Mr. Claus's sack into the wash, helped Merry and Bell shine up the bells on the reindeer's harnesses (one of Bell's favorite jobs), and helped Mrs. Claus tidy up the kitchen by eating the leftover cookies. There were some presents that hadn't been needed so I helped Wrapper and Ornie (short for Ornamento) distribute them to our fellow workers. My best friend Stockings was sitting in a corner knitting hats and scarves when I found him. "Merry Christmas," he muttered, and handed me a pair of gloves. They were red and white striped and a perfect fit. "Thanks," I told him. I can't wait for next Christmas.
