Christmas Cookies

These little cherry flavored gems are Rudolph's favorite. Any ideas as to why?

A delicate, crisp little cookie, ( also known as Swedish Butter Cookie) with a deep buttery flavor.

Nothing short of heavenly. Quite sweet, but the extra tart of the cream cheese and cranberries gives just the perfect tart touch to leave you craving just one more.

Try these cookies on the sweet-tooth in the family. Our Elves love 'em... yours will too!

There's nothing like a nice molasses cookie and a glass of milk during the holidays.

Another festive treat from Ali Elf! You've got to try it.

How about this nutty treat for your holiday party

You're going to love these little treats, direct from Mrs. Claus' Kitchen at the North Pole!

Yet another tasty treat from Ali Elf. Be careful though, you'll probably want to eat a lot of these.

Here they are! Santa's Favorite Cookies. Tried and tested on Santa himself. Leave a couple of these out Christmas Eve to make Santa REAL happy!

These are a favorite of stable elves; the elves who take care of Santa's reindeer.

Here's another favorite of the Elves. We think you will enjoy them too.

These Spicy Gingerbread Cookies have a bold flavor that's sure to tantalize your taste buds.

Fly-About Franny in Big Apple

Franny Elf enjoys the Thanksgiving Parade

[Fly-About Franny in Big Apple]

Hey kids! I'm Fly-About Franny Elf back for another year at The North Pole Times. My job is to fly around in my mini-sled before Christmas every year checking to see how boys and girls around the world celebrate Christmas. Santa says it's a very important job or he would end up delivering the wrong toys to the wrong children.

Right now I'm in New York City visiting my friends the Morrisons. Yesterday we watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade that happens every Thanksgiving in the heart of the city. This is the 98th year that New Yorkers have started celebrating the Christmas season by watching floats, marching bands, and giant balloons of their favorite cartoon characters. But the best part of the parade is the very last float carrying a special guest. Do you remember who that is? Here's a hint... he's my boss.

After the parade I asked my friends Timmy and Heather Morrison to show me what else kids do in New York City to celebrate Christmas. They first took me to Rockefeller Center to see the giant tree and the ice rink where people from all over come to ice skate. The tree is very tall, sometimes over 100 feet and is picked from trees all over the northeast United States. Timmy and Heather then showed me how all the stores and restaurants hang Christmas lights and other decorations to make them look very beautiful. Finally we stopped by a place called Radio City to watch the Rockettes. This is a very special show full of music, dancing and lot's of costumes and beautiful scenery.

I really enjoyed it! Now that we've discovered how kids in New York City celebrate Christmas, when Santa stops by on Christmas Eve, he'll be able to give the boys and girls great toys and gifts. I need to remind him that he needs to fly quickly though, because there's a lot of little kids in New York.

Remember to come back next Friday for another Franny Friday report and don't forget to visit us every day at The North Pole Times for new stories.
