perfect weekend

THe North shore weekend

12/21 – 12/22/13

For Santa and Mrs. Claus home is where the hearth is

We get a lot of offers to travel, believe us. And everyone knows Santa spends one night a year flying around the world thanks to our reindeer (bless them). But truly, our perfect weekend is right here at the North Pole. It’s Christmas here all year round. The elves are usually so gentle and helpful, except for the one time they tried to form a union. Santa got the

“Mrs. Claus enjoys weaving, making cookies and inviting friends over to listen to Jimmy Durante songs. After a few cups of eggnog they play a game called, ‘What is Mrs. Claus’ First Name?’ ” Abominable Snowman to put an end to that. Our house is nice and comfortable, and we have a fire burning inside most of the year. We all work hard to make sure the world’s good boys and girls get the presents they deserve every year. We do have different hobbies. Santa likes to kick back with a pipe and watch the New Orleans Saints and the New York Knicks (their nicknames make up his real name, Saint Nick) while Mrs. Claus enjoys making cookies and inviting friends over to listen to Jimmy Durante songs. After a few cups of eggnog they play a game called, “What is Mrs. Claus’ First Name?” Yes, we’ve been invited to Miami Beach, but Santa complained he’d be sweltering with that beard of his. And once we were asked to be on “The Merv Griffin Show” in Los Angeles, but Mrs. Claus is scared of earthquakes – the only shaking she wants to hear is Santa’s stomach, which some say is like a bowlful of jelly. So — despite that red-nosed reindeer’s offer of free sleigh travel — staying at the North Pole is just right for us. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, as told to North Pole Bureau Chief David Sweet ■

Mrs. Claus and husband Santa enjoy the Arctic air all year long — except for one night.
