Five years ago, I became an elf for the smith family. I was in the workshop when Head Elf came in. Well, we’ll get to that as soon as I tell you this: there were three different kinds of elves. Number one, Santa’s helpers. They do everything Santa needs help with. Number two, elves on the shelves. Their job is to come to a house, hide somewhere and sometimes do something fun when they’re there, the kids find them, and the elf reports to Santa. Number three, workshop elves. I am one of these. We make toys, only some things on Christmas lists. I think it is pretty boring. Now we can get back to the story! So the Head Elf came to my workshop. He sat down at a chair and started talking, “You have been a very hard working elf this year so as to do what I came here to do, Santa has wanted to give you a promotion! So I the Head Elf will show you the next level up.” And with that the Head Elf had took me out the door and outside. As we walked over to the Shelves headquarters, I started thinking: ‘Why me? Why now? When it’s almost Christmas?’ When we got there I was amazed! I mean I have seen the headquarters before, but not around Christmas! It was so decorative with all of it’s lights and trees! It was so, pretty and beautiful! When we went in, the place had lights, trees, and stockings of all different shapes and colors! One of the elves came over to us. I recognized that elf! That was my sister! I thought she left when she was worried that she would disappoint me with her job. I didn’t know she came here! She seemed surprised to see me at first, but when the head elf said that we would be working together in training, she smiled. Then once the head elf had gone my sister started talking, “Holly, I am so, so, sorry!””You don’t have to, I mean I wouldn’t blame you for coming here, Jingle!” I said hugging her.
