Hello fellow readers,
Have you ever wondered who fills in for Santa when he’s sick and can’t deliver all the presents? Have you ever thought of the other holiday characters that might possibly do the job for him? That’s right, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Pumpkin Man and Cupid might in charge this year!
Jack the Pumpkin Man was about to bite into a giant pumpkin pie he was having for dessert, when felt a buzz in his neck, the “Make Kids Happy” members, (Jack, Cupid, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy) all had a chip implanted by Santa into their necks so if it buzzed, it was time for a meeting. Cupid, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny felt it too.
“Okay, lets call a meeting!” said the Tooth Fairy, once they were all crowded around the small table in Tabletop Valley (their headquarters).
“Okay, calm down there Toothbrush!” Jack the Pumpkin Man, cried out, as he slumped lazily in his chair.
“Come on guys, show a little love!” Cupid replied as he hovered anxiously above the table.
“Don’t be so hoppy C! laughed the Easter Bunny.
So they sat down for order and talked about their holidays and how everything was going to be planned, but this talk was mostly all about Christmas, how would it be this year? Would there be carolling all round on every street corner? Candy canes hanging off of roof tops? Kids laughing as they pull their homemade sleds? That would all work out this year except for… well, presents and Old Saint Nick flying around in the air!
“So, why is the big fella so sick?” asked the Jack the Pumpkin Man
When those words were spoken, Cupid turned a really bright colour of red, even brighter than a Valentine’s Day heart!
“Cupid, what did you do?!” The Tooth Fairy asked, her voice dangerously low.
“Yeah come on C, spill the beans!” the Easter Bunny said, his voice filled with excitement.
“Nothing I-” stuttered Cupid.
“CUPID!” roared the Tooth Fairy.
“Okay, okay… I shot him in the bottom with an arrow when I was passing by his office at the North Pole, I went to ask him a question you see. It looked like he was really in love with a women he was looking at in a picture, and then after I shot him I was to embarrassed to ask the question so I left…”
“And?!” the Tooth Fairy asked while the Easter Bunny and Jack the Pumpkin man were in the middle of a wrestling match.
“Well, I didn’t mean for it to effect his health and make him sick!”
“Well, it did, didn’t it?”
For five minutes there was an awkward silence, even the Easter Bunny and Jack stopped fighting.
“We have to find a solution to this, all those poor little kids with no presents on Christmas, we will have to make something work!” said the Tooth Fairy, her head high with confidence.
“Yes!” the three boys all said together.
“Wait, how are we going to make this happen?” Jack said, his head tilted to one side in confusion.
“Boys, get your Santa suits on, we are delivering the presents this year!”
Well that’s all for chapter one of Santa’s little Helpers, come back soon if you want to find out how the trip around the world delivering presents goes for the Tooth Fairy, Cupid, Jack and the Easter Bunny.
