Tinsel and the Christmas Radio Contest

Tinsel, the Chief Christmas Spirit Elf, was very excited. After a whole long year of waiting, the Christmas season was beginning once again. Each year, Santa gave Tinsel special assignments in which he could help children around the world who needed an extra boost of Christmas spirit.

On the day after Thanksgiving, Tinsel bounded eagerly into Santa’s office for his first assignment.

“Ah, there you are, Tinsel!” Santa cried. “Have I got a job for you!”

Tinsel beamed. “Just what I like to hear!”

Santa leaned across his desk, waving a piece of red paper under Tinsel’s nose. “I just got word that there’s a little girl in Boston named Maggie whose family is having a difficult time making ends meet this year.

“Hello!” he cried, sprinting over to her with as much cheerfulness as he could muster.

Maggie was so startled, the snowman’s head slipped from her hands and plopped onto the ground. “Who are you?” she asked Tinsel. “You look like an elf.”

“I am indeed an elf!” Tinsel replied. “I’m Tinsel, Santa’s Chief Christmas Spirit Elf, as a matter of fact. And I’m here to give you and your family a very merry Christmas.”

Maggie’s shoulders sagged. “That’s nice of you, Tinsel…but I don’t think anybody could do that—not even an elf. We’re going to lose our house at the end of December. I’ve tried everything I could think of to stop that from happening, and my parents are both working hard, but…”
