Everything was quiet in the North Pole, up until Santa cried,
And as he called, Mrs Claus came running out the kitchen. “What is the problem?” she asked, passing Santa her napkin.
“I think Christmas is ruined,” Santa sobbed. There will be no white Christmas this year because the snow has refused to fall.”
Mrs Claus was very sad and she did not know what to do. She wanted to put a smile on the children’s faces as she remembered how much they loved to play in the snow and build a snowman.
Then Santa came up with a plan! He said, “There will be a white Christmas this year for all the children. We will make our snowflakes!”
So, the news went around the city, informing the children to come out, for there would be a Christmas party with a great surprise. The children came out and behold, there were snowballs all over the place, though they were not real snowflakes. Santa and his elves had worked all night to make snowflakes. The children loved the snowflakes and were happy after all. The snowballs made the whole area look so amazing. They played, danced and got tricked by Mrs Claus who wore a sheep costume. It was indeed a surprise Christmas party for the children.
The children got their presents, and they all went home happy. Mrs Claus and Santa were at last fulfilled and both lived happily ever after.
