Santa Letters Expose Santa Has Real Mouse Helpers!

In a recent interview about the handling of Santa letters, Santa himself revealed a long kept secret. Mice help organize and maintain the many letters received at the North Pole. This news is shocking because it is the elves that have long been given credit for helping Santa with every detail of the Christmas preparation.

Santa Claus disclosed in an interview with the North Pole Gazette that Christmas letters begin pouring into his mailbox as early as September every year. Santa said that he realized he could not keep track of the gazillions of letters by himself, and he stressed that he did not want to overlook even one of those carefully crafted notes. Santa said that his elves are too busy making toys to assist with such a task so he had to be innovative in finding helpers.

As he looked around the North Pole he thought about the many animals that live there. It’s true that birds and fish often help with the delivery of the santa letters but they live outdoors, Santa needed help after the letters arrived, after they are in his house. Suddenly, like a bolt of lightning Santa thought about the thousands of mice that live with him and Mrs. Claus. The fact is that the mice like to stay indoors, where it is warm and cozy. And they are always asking what they can do to help out, but in the past it seemed their size kept them from being very helpful at all. However, even a little mouse can help organize mail.

Santa immediately set out to teach his mice how to organize the mail in a way that would expedite the entire system. Santa and Mrs. Claus labeled baskets for each of the various countries and for each type of animal. All the mice had to do was place each letter in the appropriate basket. This meant that a santa letter from a dog would go into the dog basket and a letter from a rabbit into the rabbit basket, and so on.

Hailei Corin, is Santa’s little public relations guru and she states “Santa can now insure that everyone that sends a letter to him will receive personalized letters from santa. It seems this has eased Santa’s mind immensely as he shared one of his greatest worries in the past was that he would somehow miss a few letters, and children somewhere waiting for letters from santa would be disappointed”.

Balsam Hill Introduces New Slim Artificial Christmas Tree

Thomas Harman, CEO of Balsam Hill Artificial Christmas Trees, proved last year that True Needle™ technology is the best way to create realistic artificial Christmas trees. The realistic look of the Balsam Hill trees earned kudos from the Wall Street Journal, NBC’s Today Show and Good Housekeeping.

This year, Balsam Hill looks to keep the buzz going by introducing the Fifth Avenue Flatback Christmas tree, the first True Needle™ tree with a space-saving, slim design. Priced at $399, Christmas tree stands seven feet tall with 400 lights and 1536 premium branch tips. More importantly, its half-back tree shape allows it to rest right up against any wall, saving floor space in narrow areas or tight spaces.

“It’s perfect for our customers who live in apartments in big cities or have smaller living rooms,” states Harman. “Our slender trees give you the option of taking up less floor space, while still having plenty of sturdy, lifelike branches to hang your ornaments.”

While it’s too early to tell if the new half Christmas tree will be a hit, it’s likely that demand will continue to grow. Artificial Christmas tree sales showed a 10% growth year over year in the past five years, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, with U.S. consumers purchasing 9.2 million artificial Christmas trees in that time. With the reusable nature of artificial trees, the market is likely to see even more people turning to them to celebrate the holidays as environmental concerns grow.
