Long ago, Santa Claus and his elves were busy making presents for all the good children of the world. December is always a very busy time of the year at the North Pole. Mrs. Claus keeps a watch at the weather outside looking for the first snow of the year because this is a sign that is time for Santa to begin his journey of delivering the presents. She saw soft light snowflakes fluttering down from the sky. Within hours the elves had the sleigh loaded and Santa Claus was off delivering all the presents. Children all over the world were asleep in their beds while Santa Claus came down the chimney. It was Christmas time.
