Thanksgiving Day at the North Pole — now with hoofball!

A game of Thanksgiving Day hoofball!

Thanksgiving day was so much fun at the North Pole this year.  I told you all about the food Mrs. Claus and the baking elves made (and how I tried to help). Thank you for all the wonderful pie ideas.

The elves decided to make more pumpkin pies, since so many of you like that kind.

They also made gumdrop pie, but I don’t think anyone suggested that.

Before we ate all those scrumptious pies on Thanksgiving day, we played hoofball.  Have you ever played hoofball?  This is a very popular sport in the North Pole.  I get so many letters from children that want footballs, soccer balls, baseballs and volleyballs for Christmas.  Nobody ever asks for a hoofball.  I guess that’s because it is a reindeer game and not played by girls and boys.

Hoofball is a lot like football, but in the snow.  There is a lot more kicking in it and since it is a reindeer game, flying is allowed.  Comet is our best hoofball player.  He is very fast and none of the other reindeer can catch him.

I can’t catch Comet, but I did tackle Prancer in the snow.  We both rolled and rolled.  We looked like giant snowballs with arms and legs (or hooves and antlers in Prancer’s case).

Time For Thanksgiving Day Dinner!

Mrs. Claus called us in when the feast was ready.  I could smell the delicious turkey and warm buttery rolls before I even got inside.  Everyone was excited to eat, but first we shared what we were thankful for this year.  It is Thanksgiving Day after all!   Do you want to know what I am thankful for this year?  It is all of you.

I have such a long list of nice children. Children that are kind, tell the truth, try their best in school and listen to their moms and dads. You are making this world a wonderful place.  That makes me happy and thankful.  I’m also thankful that Christmas is just a few weeks away!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some parades I must get to! 😊
