This is another story in my Jinx and Jangle series. If this is the first time you are reading about Jinx and Jangle, they are Elves at the North Pole. They are very unique elves, you never know what may happen when they are around. My last Jinx and Jangle story was The North Pole Olympics.
“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday…” Jangle opened his eyes to see his room filled with several elves and Santa. They all were singing as loudly as they could with Jinx being the loudest one. When they sang the last line there was a huge Clang!! They all had been hiding cymbals behind their backs, ready for the exact moment to smash them together. Well Jangle was definitely awake now, no question about that! His heart may be pounding a little faster too. The elves were laughing and Santa’s deep, cheery laugh was easily heard.
“When you are dressed and ready, come into the dining hall, there is a special omelet made by Chef Salvo for you. ” Jinx told him. Everyone knew that Chef Salvo was the absolute best Chef around, he was Santa’s personal Chef.
It didn’t take long for Jangle to get ready knowing that, his taste buds were already salivating. He was over at the dining Hall in no time and wasn’t disappointed. His omelet was seasoned just right with the perfect hot sauce on top of it.
“What are the plans for today?” asked Jangle when he and Jinx and 2 of their other friends were the only ones left in the dining room.
“What about we all go out for a little adventure?” replied Jinx.
“Sounds great to me!”
Snowflake looked at Jinx and said, ” What kind of adventure?”
“Well we will find out once we have it, but I think it will be great!”
One couldn’t help to get caught up in Jinx’s enthusiasm so Snowflake said that he was in and Frost decided why not. Any adventure with Jinx and Jangle was bound to be exciting, for you never knew what may happen, especially if it was Jinx planing the adventure. When his wheels start turning you never know what he may come up with.
Jinx had a picnic basket filled with all kinds of tasty food. He had kindly asked Chef Salvo earlier in the week if he would prepare a special basket for a special birthday adventure.
They all headed outside to the stables where Jinx and Jangle’s team of reindeer were. The reindeer were all smiling as they tried to sing Happy Birthday to Jangle. Jangle looked at Jinx and the others as they all tried to be polite while the reindeer sang. Jangle was thinking that the clanging cymbals might have been better. He noticed the smirk on the tricky reindeer’s face. He was pretty confident that he was the one singing the loudest and the most out of tune one.
When they ended Jangle thanked them and told them he was excited about the adventure today. They all nodded in agreement, for they were always ready to go somewhere.
Jangle and Jinx and their friends climbed into the sleigh and they took off. Suddenly Jinx pulled on the reins bringing the sleigh to an abrupt halt. Jangle, Frost and Snowflake all flew forward and back again.
“Perhaps we would be better off if we walked, “, said Snowflake.
“Maybe”, chimed in Frost.
“Sorry! But I forgot something.”
They watched Jinx get out of the sleigh and run back to the dining hall. He had left the special basket of food right by the door!
He handed it over to Jangle as he got in the sleigh.
“Make sure you hang on tight to that. Who knows where this adventure may take us, but at least we can depend on having great food!”
They took off again as Snowflake and Frost started singing ” Happy Birthday” once more.
Jinx chimed in and Jangle just shook his head, what a day this may turn out to be!
