Friday's Top Ten

The top ten secrets kept by Santa's Elves:

10. Santa snores

  9. Mrs. Claus gets her gingerbread delivered from North Pole Bakery

  8. Vixen does the chicken dance after two cups of egg nog

  7. Back in 1763, Santa forgot to recharge the magic in his sleigh

  6. When Santa takes a nap, Mrs. Claus hides his remote or he won't go back to work

  5. Prancer and Blitzen almost always argue over the same set of jingle bells

  4. The Sugar Plum Fairy and the Nutcracker got married last summer

  3. Santa barely averted a strike by the sleigh packers

And the #1 secret kept by Santa's Elves:

Chicken dance! That's funny.
Susan Fields said…
I want to see Vixen do the chicken dance!
Laura Eno said…
I have this vision of Vixen doing the chicken dance stuck in my head now! :)
They're all funny, but the last one is the best. :D
Jennifer Shirk said…
What?! Mrs Claus doesn't bake her own gingerbread? I'm shocked. :-)
Julie Luek said…
Egg nog is powerful stuff, for sure. And who knew about the Sugar-Nut union?
I had no idea the Christmas Community at the North Pole was so depraved.
LR said…
Aw how cute.

Bet Mrs Claus hates that snoring.;)
Anne Gallagher said…
These were fantastic. Only you, Carol. Only you.

Luanne Smith said…
Santa is sleeping on the couch with all that snoring.
ah, so it's true that the Plum Fairy cracks Nutcracker's nuts now... I knew it!
Clarissa Draper said…
I knew you were on to them! Well done!
Summer Ross said…
I love this list!! I hope you post it on FB so I can share it!
L. Diane Wolfe said…
Okay, the first time I read #5 I saw "jingle balls" - LOL!
Carol Kilgore said…
Hey, everyone...I'll be back here to comment later in the day. Ten million items on my list to accomplish before noon. I have about thirty minutes right now, and I'm going to get to as many of your blogs as I can. The rest I'll get to later today and over the weekend. I need a Ninja elf :)
VR Barkowski said…
Great top ten and I LOVE #6. Apparently Santa and Mr. VR have something in common. ;)
BECKY said…
Carol, love them all! Too funny!

Carol Kilgore said…
Jennifer - I know!

Julie - Once the elves started talking, they spilled everything!

Janet - Thanks :)

Delores - I'd heard rumors....

LR - I'll bet she does, too.
Carol Kilgore said…
Anne - The mind is a strange thing.

Luanne - Or maybe in the reindeer barn :)

Dezmond - Ooh, you'll be on Santa's naughty list :)

Clarissa - I followed the gingerbread trail and plied them with grog :)

Summer - I think I posted a link, but not the list.

Carol Kilgore said…
Diane - LOL! I went back to check what I typed :)

Linda J - Thanks :)

VR - What's up with that? Live-In Handyman is the same way :)

Becky - Laughter is the best medicine for anything :)
I love that Mrs. Claus hides Santa's remote! Julie
michelle said…
Ooooooh, I love no#4 - it conjures the cutest image!
Once again, a great list of ten, Carol!
Talli Roland said…
Haha! Love number one.

Have a great weekend!
Carol Kilgore said…
Julie - Whatever works :)

Michelle - Thanks!

Talli - Gee, wonder why :)
M Pax said…
That was really cute. I saw a cartoon on FB recently of what the reindeer FB about Santa. It was hilarious.
Conda Douglas said…
Oh boy, you had me in stitches--I dearly adore your sense of humor!
The Sugar Plum Fairy and the Nutcracker . . . LOL. Some ballet company needs to perform that.
Carol Kilgore said…
M Pax - I haven't seen that one. Maybe it will show up on my news feed this week.

Conda - Thanks. Sometimes it gets pretty weird.

Golden Eagle - I love the Nutcracker, but I'd go watch that one, too!
Old Kitty said…
And the baby elves get to star in the Hobbit! Yay! Take care
Carol Kilgore said…
Old Kitty - Excellent!
Melissa said…
#8 is by far my favorite. :D
Carol Kilgore said…
Melissa - I understand the only reason the elves told is because Vixen refused to pay the bribe to keep them quiet :)
Linda G. said…
LOL! I always suspected Santa snores. ;)
Carol Kilgore said…
One elf said he sounded like a freight train.
