Every weekend before Christmas a different group of elves puts on a big parade. It is a lot of fun. After all, everyone at the North Pole loves a parade!
Tonight, the elves that make the Christmas decorations and ornaments put on their big parade. I think their parade is the prettiest. Would you like to hear more about their parade?
Well, first, the elves that make the Christmas lights put up strings of flashing lights along the parade route. It really looks Christmassy! It is very bright too! The elves putting up the Christmas lights have to wear sunglasses!
Then the parade starts with the dancing Christmas trees. They are decorated so nicely! Some have tinsel. Some have Christmas balls. Some are covered in ribbons. Some are even covered in stuffed toys. The elves push the trees around on little carts to make them dance.
There are many fancy floats too. One float is covered in Christmas wreaths. All of a sudden, a whole bunch of elves pop their heads out of the wreaths and shout “Merry Christmas!” Everyone laughs and shouts “Merry Christmas!” back to them.
One silly float has a big house on it with lots of lights. But the lights keep burning out! Isn’t that silly? Clumsy the Elf keeps running around with a ladder changing the light bulbs. Of course, you never know what will happen when Clumsy climbs a ladder!
There are also great big Santa balloons, reindeer balloons and snow globes. They are so big the elves holding them keep floating up in the air. Then another elf will grab their leg. That brings them back down so they do not float away. Can you imagine floating elves?
Elves also dress up in big Christmas bows and dance to Christmas music in the parade. Other elves are in present boxes. It is funny because they cannot see where they are going! They keep bumping into each other. They are such silly elves.
Some elves in the parade walk around with mistletoe. Do you know what you are supposed to do if someone holds mistletoe over your head? Well that is what these elves do! (I think Mrs. Claus likes this part the best. 🙂
The parade always ends with the “running of the reindeer”. Well, that is what we call it anyway. The reindeer tie piñatas to their antlers. The elves have special soft foamy bats. The elves try to break the piñatas to get all the goodies inside. But every year the reindeer are too fast (or maybe the elves legs are too short?!). I heard that next year some elves are going to wear roller skates!
P.S. What other things do you think there are in the Christmas Decorations Christmas Parade? What do you think would be the funniest part? (You can leave me a message here. Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)
