Picnics and Pirates

September at the Pole

[Picnics and Pirates]

As kids around the world are getting ready to go back to school, the elves at the North Pole are gearing up for their favorite time of year: Toy Making Season! While toy making does happen all year round in the workshop, September is the time the elves start to finalize what the good girls and the boys of the world will be gifted. And much of their time is spent doing inventory. It is vital to know if they have enough toys to make everyone’s holiday dreams come true. But it isn’t all work and no play (although for the elves work is play!). They take time to celebrate some holidays in September too.

American Labor Day
In the 1800s, most Americans worked 12-hour days! And children as young as 5-6 often had to work too. Families were desperate to put food on their tables and factories were desperate to increase productivity. Workers started to fight for better working conditions.To be better heard, 10,000 workers marched from City Hall to Union Square in New York City on September 5, 1882. This is recognized as the first Labor Day Parade! It became custom, and in 1894 a law, that an annual labor day would give the American workforce a day off of work to recognize their contributions to our society. Many folks choose to celebrate the day with BBQ picnics and family. The elves wholeheartedly believe that a day of rest and relaxation helps them do their jobs more effectively. So they also recognize Labor Day, which is usually the first Monday of September, as a day of rest before they go into high gear at preparing for Christmas!

International Talk like a Pirate Day
Ahoy, me hearties! Created as a joke in 1995, two friends have taken the world by its peg leg and made everyone want to talk like pirates.

[by Elvin Elf]

The elves love mischief, so they embraced this holiday as soon as they heard about it. It took the rest of the world a decade to catch up. The friends that created the day sent a letter to Dave Barry, a nationally syndicated columnist, in 2005. Dave Barry exclaimed “Shiver me timbers!” What a grand idea!” Actually, we’re not sure what he said, we only know he promoted the idea using his column and it caught on. The elves are always up for some fun. So when September 19 arrives it sounds like this in the workshop: Bernard Elf: Avast me hearties! Better get to makin’ the bounty for the good lads and lassies, exception’ those that be hangin’ the jib. Translation: Hello friends! We should be making toys and gifts for the good boys and girls unless they are pouting. At night they watch pirate movies like Hook, Peter Pan or Muppet Treasure Island.
