The weekly news update featuring Eiffel Tower Dedication
We received a report from an anonymous elf stating that they witnessed Santa and Mrs. Claus dancing in the mansion this past week. Rumors suggest that the Clauses may make an appearance at the dance competition on Friday night. The Clauses did attend the dance about 40 years ago and were some stiff competition with them coming in third place. It will be interesting to see what happens on Friday night....
The weekly news update featuring Moondog Coronation Ball - First Rock Concert
Santa issued the order to shut-down all of the workshops and warehouses this past Saturday in hopes that all of the elves throughout the city would go and spend some time with friends and family for the parade and the Snowball Games Finals. About an hour after he issued the order for the shut-down, he took a walk through the workshop and found several of the craftsman elves still hard at work. After questioning these elves why they were not leaving their post they had stated that they did not have family or friends to spend time with, so they decided to just remain working. After hearing this, Santa called up to Mrs. Claus to let her know, he was taking all of these elves and they would all be spending the afternoon with him at the Snowball Games....
The weekly news update featuring First St. PatricksDay Parade
Latimer Snerd, supervisor of Santa's Workshop has sent out a memo to the gift wrapping division tripling this week's standard order for red and white striped wrapping paper. The new toys rolling off the assembly line are requiring a bit more wrapping than what was originally anticipated; therefore production over at the gift wrapping factory will have to ramp up a little bit more to keep up with the demand. Please check this week's Peppermint Post Job Postings for additional staff members being needed at the wrapping paper factory....
The weekly news update featuring Telephone Patent and First Transmitted Words on Telephone
Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting our very own Walter "Mistletoe" Livingstone who is still in the hospital after he broke the record during the "Polar Bear Plunge" last week. Since Walter now holds the record, his photograph will be posted in the Workshop with a special plaque that reads his name, the date of the polar bear plunge, and his lengthy record of 15 minutes and 35 seconds. Santa and Mrs. Claus have been waiting to visit Walter until he was feeling much better and word from the hospital is that he should be discharged sometime this week. We are expecting him to return next week for the news. ...

The weekly news update featuring John Glenn Orbits the Earth
Santa has been discussing with the engineers within Santa's village the possibility of bringing out the snow machines again this year. This year has not seen the snow fall accumulation needed to sustain Santa's Village and the North Pole City ecosystem and he is thinking that it might be time to look at getting the snow generators up and operational. The engineer team and mechanics will be pulling the machines out of storage this week and going over the engines to make sure everything is operational in case they will be needed. More information should be coming out soon....

The weekly news update featuring Hollywood Walk of Fame
Santa has reported that he is disappointed that the elders have decided against doing a census, but understands their viewpoint. He is hoping that they are willing to help come up with some alternatives though rather than just replying with a no. Ultimately, he wanted to have the database created as a means to increase productivity and communication within NPC and just used sending presents to birthday elves as an example of how it could be used- it was not to be the main focus.
Also, the Clauses reportedly did like the idea of new candy cane flavors. They were not fans of all the flavors that were sent over for testing, but did give the approval for the confectioners to start making small batches of the candy to test out here in North Pole City. They suggested having the elves vote on new flavors at a tasting event and even have the elves suggest other flavors that could be made. The Clauses do think though, that any candy canes given in stockings to the lower 48 should be our traditional peppermint since it is the quintessential flavor of Santa and North Pole City....

The weekly news update featuring Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Released
Representatives from the Candy Cane Factory have sent over some new samples to Santa and Mrs. Claus for them to try out this weekend. Some of the workers feel that there should be new flavors manufactured at the North Pole that are being created down in the lower 48 in order to help keep up with the tastes of everyone. The only flavor that is manufactured at the North Pole is and has always been peppermint. Some of the new flavors they have sent over for testing is bacon, strawberry, blueberry, ketchup, kale, mushroom, sour cream and onion, and bubble gum. A decision by Mr. and Mrs. Claus is expected this week.
Do you think we should have more flavors? Which of the flavors being tested would you like to try? Do you have a different flavor in mind? Let us Know....

The weekly news update featuring Gold Found in Sutter Creek
Santa has asked the engineering department to create a new technology wing off the side of the Workshop residence for elves to be able to go into the computer lab in a comfortable environment to conduct research on the Internet. Santa would like to encourage more elves to embrace technology and research anything that may be available to help with the design and construction of gifts. This new facility will provide the craftsman elves to have a place where they can go and conduct this research and sketch up some new designs. Santa would like to have this completed and online by the end of the week. ...
Santa was strolling through the workshop today and came upon a craftsman worker named Herbert "Happy" Yeardley who was sitting at their station working on a laptop. This actually was a strange site to see since most craftsman elves do not embrace technology too well (hence their tablet computers be...
