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 Nov 29, 2021. I'm your host Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone. Let's go to press.

|Update form Santa’s Village, There was a 4 hour production shortage on Tuesday due to a transportation delay to the workshop. Supply trucks were stopped for 4 hours due to a herd of moose that took up residency for some time on the supply road from the wrapping paper warehouse to Santa’s workshop. Expert animal handlers from Santa’s stables had to go out to lead the animals off the highway. It took three working shifts for the workshop to get back up to production.|
|Head elf Edward Hinklemyer released a memo to all supervisors again this week mandating additional breaks for all workshop related elf workers. There have been increasing numbers of elves in the infirmary for being over exhausted and this is a direct violation of the Workers Union Handbook.|
|On TAOLF.com, the Division of Forestry has posted directions and guidelines for growing douglas fir trees in the nobile forest. These directions will also work in the lower 48.Flight command has also posted the new weekly reindeer workout flight schedule. Check out the schedule on the website if you want to take a break and go out and watch the flights.|
|We will see another change in this week's weather as last week's snow storm starts to wind down. Temperatures will drop again as the skies clear. Make sure to bundle up. Reports from the transportation department have estimated this past storm's snowfall to be 7 ½ feet. Anyone wishing to refill with fresh drinking water can stop by the transportation department as they will continue to be melting snow into next week.|
|This week in Elf History, On Dec 1, 1955, Rosa Parks ignited the bus boycott in Montgomery Alabama. Rosa Parks was jailed for refusing to give up her seat on a public bus to a white man, a violation of the city’s racial segregation laws. The successful Montgomery Bus Boycott, organized by a young Baptist minister named Martin Luther King, Jr., followed Park’s historic act of civil disobedience.|
