I went down to the stables and talked to Dasher today. He and the other reindeer are all hard at work practicing for the reindeer games. Last year Donner won quite handily. I can hardly wait for the games. It is always a lot of fun. I understand that Comet is favored. I see that Pokemon are still popular this year, not as much as they used to be. That was quite a Christmas a few years ago. I think the Elves still call it The Pokemon Christmas. Pokemon toys, cards, games, sheets, clothes, posters, videos. I wonder what the big toy will be this year. Mrs. Claus thinks it will be Harry Potter toys. Elf Jingles feels that it will be the X box. He loves those gadgets. I think they are all wonderful in their own ways. The important thing is that each gift goes to a deserving girl or boy who will give it a good home. That's why its very important for me to keep my list of who has been naughty and who has been nice.
