Holiday Preparations Underway
It seems hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is almost here!
The mice have been busy harvesting the last of the autumn crops and preparing decorations for the big feast! A wonderful tradition that the mice look forward to every year is the apple-smoked cheese, which is aged all year and served on Thanksgiving. For many a mouse, this cheese is all the dessert they need!
As much as they enjoy Thanksgiving, the mice know there’s an even bigger holiday on the way, so a lot of them have already started their decorating for Christmas too. It’s never really too early to start celebrating the festive spirit of Christmas.
Santa is even beginning his own preparations for the annual moonlit trip over the Village. This year, the jolly old elf is reporting that early wish lists from the little mouselets are showing high demand for a pair of ragdolls and a toy soldier.
Now, if you’re like me, you’ve often wondered where Santa gets ideas for toys every year… well, it turns out a lot of his ideas come from the very little mice elves who work at his Village studio. For example, for the ragdolls he used his little elves Christy and Misty as inspiration! These two like to be different, but similar, so they are wearing the same Rose Pink and Dusty Mauve colored dresses, but in opposing patterns.
For the toy soldier, Santa used the Major of his studio guard as the perfect model!
Along with all their holiday planning, the mice have been busy making ornaments of Misty, Christy and the Major for the General Store. You may notice they are a little different from our other ornaments in that they don’t have bases. There’s a good reason for this… while you can always hang them up or set them in your display, the mice are dreaming up another fun way to show them off next year…
