The Gala at North Pole Industries is almost here.
The year has been challenging for all the Claus family,
friends and elves of every category: dreamers, designers,
engineers and more. Work is abundant and
rewarding as it continues to bring joy around the world.
Crystal sits at her dressing table with brush in hand
as she ponders the past months and what lies ahead.
The Gala will be held in the main ballroom decorated
with garland and chandeliers dimmed for magical
ambience. Tables adorned with white linen, lace
and gum drop trees will surround the dance floor.
The orchestra will play waltzes as dancers glide with
grace around the room. Roasted chestnuts, ambrosia
and ginger bread will be served with eggnog and
refreshing cranberry punch in gold rimmed goblets.
Surrounded by an array of accoutrements, she looks
deeply into the mirror before her. She styles
her hair to compliment the red evening gown made
custom for her by the chief seamstress elf.
The shoes to perfectly match, jewelry to sparkle,
perfumes and just the right touch of cosmetics
should accent nicely. It is very important to Miss
Crystal Claus to look sophisticated, but sweet and
most important to set a good example by letting her
inner light shine. She knows that the mirror image
she sees is just a reflection. No one can see their true
self as they are seen by the Master of all things, but
she will do her best and remember the Reason
for the Season.
All the planning, production and delivery is complete.
Now is the time to acknowledge with gratitude
and celebrate everyone’s contribution to a successful
year of dreams come true and wishes fulfilled.
