Santa’s Sleigh Won’t Fly If Overloaded

As you may have guessed, Santa has thousands of elves working and making gifts for him to deliver all over the world. This year, when the elf in charge of loading Santa’s sleigh looked at the huge pile of gifts arriving at the North Pole daily, he was utterly overwhelmed! You see, Santa’s sleigh, like an airplane, must not be overload or it will not fly. The captain of the dozens of sleigh loading elves thought about that problem for a long time, then he came up with the obvious solution.

Captain Loading-Elf, as he is known, said to Santa: “ I know what we can do with this surplus of gifts! We’ll have a virtual Christmas sale just like the people in other parts of the world have.” Santa thought for a moment and in the twinkling of his eye, and with a belly laugh that delighted all who heard it, he blurted out to Loading-Elf: “Great idea! Let’s do it!”

What kind of Christmas gifts can you find on your computer during one of Santa’s Virtual Christmas Sales? Let me give you an example.

At there are groups of craftsmen (and women) who call themselves: ASEs (Associate Santa’s Elves). These folks take time during the fall of each year to dedicate their time and talents to a special project. This is when they lovingly create and fashion with their own hands, some of the most unique Christmas gifts you’ll ever see in the whole wide world.

Each ASE strives with heartfelt concern to make gifts to delight you and everyone on your Christmas list. When you see the variety and creativeness evident in each ASE’s work, you’ll know each item had to be a labor of love. You see, this is because the ASE’s are much more interested in filling your need for a really special, and unique gift they created than they are in the money you pay for their creations. In short, their first objective and greatest desire is your satisfaction and delight in owning or giving as a gift one or more of their one-of-a-kind handiworks.

Here is what you can expect to see at this very crafty and different Virtual Christmas Sale. Look, for a minute, at this list of the names of the booths. In fact, the booth names are quite interesting and they tell you a lot about the talents of the elves who work there:

Ladybug Creations, Craftastic, Heartlite Country, Home Spun, Stacey’s Creations, Sharran’s Jewelry, CJ’s Country Crafts, Thunderspirit Designs, Native Spirit Indian Regalia, Bethlehem Olive Wood, Originals by Weber, Sleeping Angels, Fancies by Plain, Stormy’s Collectables, Tears of the Sun Silver Jewelry,Baubles, My Backyard Creations, Sassie’s Scroll Artwork, Fatima Olive Wood Works, K9 Bytes, Eclectic Treasures, Chick N Crow, Lath Art by Plain, MIK Exclusive Gifts, Mom O’ All Trades, Crafty-Knits, We’re The Ones, Double Trouble, Just My Cup O’ Tea, Towel Buddies, Gel Gems, Mom’s To Do List, Olive Wood Supplies …and, of course, much more.

So this year, instead of driving to a crowded mall in bumper-to-bumper traffic, sit down in front of your computer and do some of your Christmas shopping the “virtual way.”

Remember, using your computer to visit Santa’s Virtual Christmas Sale at is a great way to prove the wisdom of Santa’s elf: Captain Loading- Elf.

Obviously, that wise old elf came up with a really great way to do two things: first, he found a way to help Santa get what could have been an overloaded sleigh – in the air. Second, he made it possible for you to do your Christmas shopping right there, in the comfort of your own home.
