Labor Day

Today is Labor Day in the United States. It’s a holiday there.

Here at the North Pole, it’s also a labor day.

But it’s not a holiday.

We have only three months left until the Christmas season.

All the workshops are working at full capacity to get all the toys and games and candy and clothes ready in time.

They are creating enormous piles of dolls, model trains, games, socks, chalk boards, balls, toy planes, sleds, scarves, candy canes, water color sets, false noses, sweaters, stuffed animals, crayons, plastic dinosaurs, blocks, fire trucks with hoses that really shoot water, ovens, tea sets, jacks, markers, and so much more.

We’re also trying to fill some unusual requests.

For example, the stuffed animal workshop has been asked to make some stuffed aardvarks (147), wombats (19), and even jelly fish (3).

We don't fill all requests. I leave live puppies, kittens, horses, tarantulas, and elephants (really) to parents to give.

Then there are the very different requests.

One French lad wrote me to ask for a working guillotine, along with three dolls that have heads that come off.

I don’t think so.

And one boy from Bulgaria wrote to tell me his father is a werewolf.

I have seen his father. He does look like a werewolf.

I won’t send the boy the electric razor he asked for, though.

Especially since he doesn't shave yet.
