As families gathered around their tables yesterday afternoon in observance of Thanksgiving, a heavy snow began to fall at the North Pole. But elves from the Weather Tracking Department had forecast a significant weather system would pass over the region by nightfall.
Sure enough, as Santa and all the merry family at the North Pole gathered for the annual lighting ceremony on the Claus Family compound, blizzard force winds dumped snow at a rate of over a foot an hour. The wind howled so much the singing of the choir could hardly be heard. As all beat a hasty retreat for the cover of the recreation hall, noses pressed to windows to view the beauty of the snowy scene in Christmas lights.
â€śItâ€™s a good omen for the season!â€ť Santa said. â€śItâ€™s going to be a great year.â€ť And with that, Operation Merry Christmas 2005 began.
Today, as the world scampers to stores in search of Christmas bargains, the crews up at the North Pole are happily engaged in the business of Santa. Toys and gifts are being made, presents are being wrapped, the sleigh is being prepared and reindeer are in training. All is merry and bright as we extend a warm Merry Christmas to all at the start of the season.
Daily updates from the North Pole will be sent by letter, smoke signal, telepathy, television, radio, text paging, fax, email and via the Internet between now and Christmas Eve. Please be sure to check back here for the latest on Operation Merry Christmas.
