News Update - December 20, 2021

News Update Transcript

Featuring information about the premiere of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.

To all North Pole City Elves, those in Santa’s Village, in the Lower 48 and all around the world, this is your weekly update for the week of December 20, 2021. I'm your host Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone let’s go to press.

This week’s show is sponsored by Crystal’s Candy Confections.  Located on the corner of Pine Street Ave and Candy Cane Lane, Crystals’ Candy Confessions specializes in chocolate creations that are out of this world.  When you are tired of candy canes, stop by Crystal’s to satisfy that sweet tooth.  That’s Crystal’s Candy Confections, the best chocolate in North Pole City.
Santa’s village is reporting that the last 500,000 gifts will be coming out of the workshop soon.  With the package gift satellites at 98% capacity, these gifts are needed for the last satellite in Sector 7.  “All the gifts are built, we just got a bit behind in gift wrapping,” said Jackson “Skippy” Baxter.  With the “All hands on deck order issued, production has increased and we will get this done.”  The workshop is now shut down and the Gift Wrapping division is filled to capacity.  Some wrapping stations have been set up in the hallways and corridors.  Barring any accidents or supply shortages, everything is going to be fine.
Edward Hinklemyer has issued a statement asking all elves and departments to double check everything this week before lift off on Friday.  “This year seems to be on track, but I want us to check, double check, and triple check everything if we have too,” he said.  “We need to make sure that this year’s delivery goes on without any issues. Everyone including humans are dealing with stressful situations this year and it is imperative that we spread as much Christmas cheer as possible.”
Webmasters from TAOLF.com has been working with Mrs. Claus to get her web page updated.  This was a good distraction for her this week as she is always nervous and anxious before Santa’s flight. Some new articles have been posted to her page.
The weather forecast for the “Take-Off Party” looks to be the best we have had in a very long time.  Temperature will still be a little cold, but there are no snow storms expected until late next week.
On December 20, 1808 Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony had its world premiere in Vienna.  Although the initial reviews failed to recognize it as one of the greatest pieces of music ever written, one needs to understand the adverse conditions under which the work was first heard. The concert venue was freezing cold; it was more than two hours into a mammoth four-hour program before the piece began; and the orchestra played poorly enough that day to force the nearly deaf composer—also acting as conductor and pianist—to stop the ensemble partway into one passage and start again from the very beginning. It was, all in all, a very inauspicious beginning for what would soon become the world’s most recognizable piece of classical music.
North Police City Commerce would like everyone to know that the “Take-Off” party will begin on time in Santa's Village Square.   As usual, after Santa lifts off for his delivery, the party will start off with a untied sing-along.  This year’s selection will be, “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”  Some of the bands scheduled for  the party this year will be “Freddy and the Twinkle Tones”, “Carol and the Bell Ringers,” and everyone’s favorite, “The Tree Tops”.   “We have well over 200 booths scheduled to be set up at the party this year from most of the local businesses in North Pole City,” said organizer Carol “Buttons” Appleton.  “We will have everything from food and refreshments to ice skating available for everyone.  We are expecting close to 2 mill at the party, and have placed an order for over 100,000 gallons of hot chocolate.”It sounds like this year’s party is going to be a blast, be sure to stop by the WELF-NPC booth for a chance to win some station merchandise.
WELF-NPC would like to wish a very happy 675 birthday to Markus “Sprinkles” Grossman.   Mr. Grossmanhas been a Coal Mining Elf for almost 500 years now.  We wish you many more happy years.

This is Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone with the reminder: The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and be sure to tune in next week for another WELF-NPC North Pole Radio News Update.
