'I'm telling you, children are horrid!' Santa slouched down onto his bed, holding his 'On Strike' sign.
'How are we going to change Santa's mind?' Elma Elf whispered. Esmay had an idea and picked up the worldwide viewer.
'Here's the Star family!'
Santa stared at the screen.
'Mum should I place a cake and milk out for Santa?'
'Oh he would love that!'
'I've been very good this year Santa!'
Santa sat up. 'Well...' he said quietly.
'Well what?' Esmay asked, shaking.
'Well I'm thinking why aren't we delivering presents right now? Rudolph, Christmas is back on again. Hooray!'
