“Do you have all the eggs ready?” asked Jinx. It was time for the annual North Pole Easter Egg Hunt and this year Jinx and Jangle were in charge of it.
“Just finishing up!” said Jangle. “Only 3 more to go.”
Jinx and Jangle were admiring their handwork while putting all the eggs in 2 big baskets. They were pretty impressed with their artistic work on the eggs.
“Guess its time for us to start hiding them now. Oh wait a minute where is Snowball? Remember we gave him some eggs for he said he would help. He was in charge of the special eggs.” said Jangle.
The special eggs were the ones that could be traded in for fun rewards. Rewards like a day off work, a extra long ride somewhere on the back of Dinosaris, and a special meal made by Santa’s own personal Chef. Chef Salvo. Everyone loved his food, especially Santa!
“That’s right, ” said Jinx, “But you know Snowball, he is probably napping again.”
They decided they would go over to his house and wake him. Grabbing their basket of eggs they left.
They walked just a little ways when Jinx said, ” Hey look! Here comes Dinosaris with Snowball on his back.”
They were flying low and landed right in front of Jinx and Jangle.
“Thanks for the ride.” Snowball said, as he climbed off Dinosaris.
“Hi guys, here are the eggs, they all have the special gold star stickers on them!”
“Great! Lets get started hiding them!”
It took them quite awhile, for finding hiding places for 100 eggs could be rather hard.
At last they finished and they informed Santa that they were ready for the Easter Egg Hunt to begin!
Soon elves were scrambling everywhere and chattering away as they hunted for the eggs. Jinx, Jangle and Snowball were enjoying watching along with Santa.
“I found a special egg! I found one!” shouted Flake.
“Here Jinx, give it to Santa for me please, as I go try to find some more.” Flake tossed it to Jinx, and Jinx tried his best to catch it, but he missed and it cracked as it hit the ice.
“OOPS!” said Jinx. Santa just chuckled and assured Jinx that he would make sure Flake got a special reward.
“We could throw some more eggs your way Jinx and perhaps you could make scrambled eggs!” laughed Jangle and Snowball.
The hunt took extra long this year, for the eggs had been hidden really well. The elves were asking clues, but the clues that Jinx, Jangle and Snowball came up with mostly just caused the elves to be confused as Jinx, Jangle and Snowball just laughed.
At last it was over and everyone was happy with what they had found.
“Thank you guys for your hard work,” Santa said to Jinx, Jangle and Snowball. You did a great job! If you are hungry, Chef Salvo has his own special poached eggs waiting for you”
They wouldn’t turn down Chef Salvo’s food. They all eagerly walked towards the kitchen. To their surprise he had more than just eggs for them, he also had small special chocolate cakes for each of them.
“Wow! This is great!”
They were finishing up when Santa said “Hey guys, when you are finished you may want to look at the bottom of your plates.”
Cleaning up the crumbs, for you couldn’t let them go to waste, they turned over their plates to look.
“A gold star! We got gold stars! What do they mean Santa? Are we getting another reward besides this yummy food that we just had?”
“Yes!” said Santa, and he smiled, and then to their surprise just walked away.
The 3 elves looked at each other curiously. What did Santa mean? What was their reward? They looked at Chef Salvo.
“Do you know what Santa has up his sleeve? ” they asked.
Chef Salvo winked,” OH that Santa can be tricky, but yes I do know, and you all will find out in time. ” he said, chuckling as he walked away.
