Christmas Decorating Contest at the North Pole

15Merry Greetings, all!

It is one of the biggest days of the year here at the North Pole and everyone here is busy celebrating it. It is the Day before Thanksgiving, also known as the last day for everyone to get their Christmas lights up.

It is a Thanksgiving tradition at the North Pole to light the entire village at the same time on Thanksgiving Evening. All the residents of the North Pole, including Santa and Mrs. Claus, stroll by all the houses to look at the lights and decorations.

At the end of the night Santa awards a home for the best display. It is one of the most prestigious awards you can win at the North Pole.

Of course, being elves, some seem to take lighting their homes to extremes. Rumor has it that Elf Jack from the Tracking Department is going to use fireworks in his lighting display this year. We’ll let you know how that all turns out.

And yes, of course, like many of you there are many homes also engaged in cooking and baking today in advance of a Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.
