7 Days Left Until Christmas

At the North Pole:

At the North Pole there are thousands upon thousands of Christmas lights that light up and blink.  You know that all lights eventually burn out and yes the Christmas lights do burn out.  So there are elves whose only duty is to change out and replace the burned out Christmas lights.  They also have the job of adding new Christmas lights when something new is built!  Christmas goes 24/7 and 365 days a year at the North Pole!

Christmas Song:

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year is a popular Christmas song written in 1963 by Edward Pola and George Wyle.  It was recorded and released that year by pop singer Andy Williams for his first Christmas album, The Andy Williams Christmas Album.  Yes the Andy Williams version is still very popular today!
