May letter year 2

Oh hi!

This has been a very exciting spring. I know the flowers are just beginning to pop up where you live but here they are always wide awake.

After my sister flower fairies and I sang and danced all of your flowers awake we wanted to do something really different and exciting.

Some of the bravest flower fairies have been hollyhock climbing for several years but my sisters and I have been too frightened to try it. In case you don’t know hollyhocks are very, very tall flowers. They can be almost nine feet tall. Their stems almost reach up to the sky. They have flowers at the very top that look like bells. The flowers can be almost any color, white, pink, yellow, blue, purple and sometimes even almost black. My favorite colors are the purple and yellow ones.

The number one main rule of flower climbing is that we can’t use our wings unless we fall off the flower stems. It’s really scary climbing that high without using our wings. I’m afraid of high places!

But this year we decided to try it. I was really scared but Zaizy and Waizy, our climbing teachers started us on gladioli, they are kind of like hollyhocks only not as tall. Zaizy and Waizy are both champion climbers. There isn’t a flower anywhere that they haven’t climbed. I was really scared at first but it was kind of fun. Since then I’ve gone a lot of times and now I am ready to try my first hollyhock. Every time I go climbing I try to go higher than the last time. I still haven’t reached the top of any flowers yet but by the end of summer I plan on sitting inside a bright purple hollyhock! That will be so cool!

What do you plan on doing during your summer vacation?

I don’t suppose humans can climb hollyhocks, you’re too big, but I hope you find something exciting to do.

Happy May Day!

Your friend

Easter letter year 2

Happy Easter

Have you got your basket all ready for me? I hope so! I have lots of stuff to put in it for you. We have been so busy this year making all the good stuff for Easter. When all the jelly beans were stolen after Easter last year I put new locks on all my factories so all the candy would be safe.

The only problem I had was with my 37 times removed, cousin, your Mom can explain that one to you. All I know is that Aubrey is a very distant, distant cousin. He showed up last winter wanting to learn the Easter business. He is always willing to do anything I tell him to do. He is a good worker and a very friendly fun Rabbit, but ………. I do have a problem with him.

Aubrey has a terrible sweet tooth. He can’t stop eating candy. At first I had him count the jelly beans as they were drying, but he ate half of them every day. I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough left for Easter, so I moved him. Next we had him wrapping the chocolate rabbits until someone noticed they looked funny. We unwrapped a few and found out that Aubrey had eaten the ears off of all the chocolate rabbits. We had to throw away all the ones without ears and make new ones so all the kids could eat their ears off on Easter morning.

I finally came up with a really great idea for Aubrey. I told him to count all the chocolate and filled Easter eggs. They were already wrapped so I thought they would be safe. I didn’t notice the straw he carried in his back pocket! He stuck the straw in through the wrapper and sucked out all the insides of the peanut butter eggs, the strawberry creme filled eggs and the coconut eggs. After we replaced all those eggs I was at a complete lost what to do with Aubrey. He wants to help so badly but he just can’t leave the candy alone.

Yesterday Jasper Sprite suggested I have Aubrey put the colored grass in the Easter baskets. That way he would be in a factory that didn’t have any candy in it. So far so good. He’s putting just enough grass in each basket to make them look fantastic. He isn’t sneaking any candy, or at least not any that we’ve found yet. Now I can worry about getting the right candy in the right baskets for every child.

Oh oh! Benjymmy Rabbit is running from the malted milk egg factory. Benjymmy never runs. He says nothing is that important to make him run. He’s running as fast as he can! This can’t be good!

Two days later!

Sorry about the delay. We had a real problem. Benjymmy, you remember he was the one who came running to get me. He found a huge pile, at least 7 feet high, of wrappers from all kinds of Easter candy. Someone had broken into our storage building and ate all of the candy we had kept there. We asked everyone and Aubrey finally admitted he had gotten in there and ate all the candy. Now he is working in the stuffed animal factory which is as far away from the candy factories as I can get him. We also have several large tough bunnies named Fluffy and Downy watching him all the time. They both have black belts in fighting. Black belts are awards for being the very best fighters in ‘End of the Rainbow’. Fluffy and Downy sound like they would be big friendly cuddly rabbits but they are not. Fluffy has a black belt in kicking, he has the biggest back feet I have ever seen on a rabbit. Downy also has a black belt but his is in biting. His front teeth are huge! Both of them are the very best fighters we have, but they only fight in contests or to protect themselves or someone else. They never start fights or even like fighting just to hurt someone. We haven’t told Aubrey that yet, he thinks they’ll fight him if he tries to steal any more candy.

Aubrey is terrified of them so he hasn’t even tried to get into any of the candy factories. I should have all the candy I need on Easter Morning!

I’ll be seeing you Easter Morning, you’ll probably still be asleep but I’ll look in on you anyway. Happy Easter!

April Fool’s Day letter year 2

Hello,

Guess what time it is? Yup, you’re right! It’s time for jokes and tricks again. I love April Fool’s Day. So does my best friend Bentley Unicorn. We’re all ready to go to every house and play our tricks.

I have my list all ready of all the places I’m going to play tricks this year. At some houses I plan on moving the furniture when no one is looking. At other places we’ll hide things.

Your name is on my list but I’m not going to tell you what I’m planning on doing. You’ll just have to wait and see, or maybe trip over something. I hope I really trick you, maybe I’ll hide your favorite toy and it will take you a long time to find it. Or maybe I’ll hide your TV remote so you can’t change the channel and will have to watch the same thing all week.

Maybe I’ll move your bed while you’re sleeping, that would be a really neat trick! Those are some of my very most favorite tricks to play. 

Have a fun April Fool’s Day! I’ll be seeing you but you won’t see me!

St. Patrick’s Day letter year 2

Top O’ the Mornin’

Once again it is my favorite time of the year. It’s St. Patrick’s Day! All the leprechauns in the world are celebrating right now! We start a wee bit earlier than you humans do, we love parties!

I know there are lots of parades on St. Patrick’s Day and everyone wears green and tries to be Irish, at least for that day. Here at ‘End of the Rainbow’ it’s a real celebration for all of us leprechauns. We do love to party!

Unlike most of the other Holiday keepers we really don’t have to do anything special for St. Patrick’s day except keep our pots of gold safely hidden. For some reason a lot of you big people think it’s easier to catch a leprechaun on St. Patrick’s day. It’s not! It’s actually harder because we’re all here having a great big party.

Last year my 25 times Great Uncle Connor O’Connor escaped from the humans who had caught him over 300 years ago. Well actually it wasn’t the same people but the same family. You humnas don’t live 300 years like us leprechauns do. He doesn’t talk about it much but he did say they never tricked him into telling them where his gold was hidden. It’s hard to trick a leprechaun, we are the kings of tricks, and we know all the tricks in the whole universe.

This year we are having all of my 25 times great Uncle’s favorite foods because he hasn’t been to a party in over 300 years. Last year he was too weak from being gone so long to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day. He’s ready to party now!

We’re having spinach sauce and soda bread, potatoes and corned beef. Green grog. Young leprechauns drink green soda pop! We’re also having green chips, fish fries and green jello and green cookies.

There will be all day soccer games and lots of dancing. Leprechauns love to play soccer and dance all night.

I hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day and I hope you have lots of time to dance a jig (that’s an Irish dance that we leprechauns love to dance).

Your favorite Leprechaun

Valentine letter year 2

Dear ——-

Do you like getting Valentines from your friends? I do, but mostly I like giving them to my friends.

I don’t know if you’ve seen pictures of me, but even though I look like a baby with wings in all the pictures I am actually over seven thousand years old! That is really, really old!

I have a very special bow and arrows that I shoot humans with. When I shoot adults it makes them fall in love. It also makes them do mushy things like kiss and call each other funny names like honey bunch and sugar! It only works on Valentine’s Day so I spend the whole day flying around shooting at people. It doesn’t hurt them when my arrows hit them.

When I shoot children it makes them nicer to their friends and family. My arrows always make people feel good.

There are a lot of different ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, most people just send cards or give candy to special friends. In most country no one ever sees me or feels my arrows when I shoot them. That way I can shoot people without them even knowing it’s me.

Do you have all your Valentine cards ready to give to your friends? I do, well almost! I still have a few left to finish. Let’s see, the ones I have finished are for Cormick O’Greene, Maizy Flower Fairy, Rascal Werewolf, Father Time, Gretha Tooth Fairy, Artie Wood Elf, Fraidy Black Cat, Tom and Taffy Turkey, Albert Rabbit, Jak Jester, Jasper Sprite, Sam Eagle, Santa Claus and six million and ninety nine Watcher Elves. All I have left is to send is yours.

Have a wonderful, happy, fun Valentine’s Day

Crazy Cupid

P.S. Now I am all done! Happy Valentine’s Day

Letter from Father Time year 2

Dear

Where does time go? Do you know? Every New Year seems to come faster and faster. I hardly have time between New Years to relax. There are always so many things to get done before another New Year shows up. And now here we go again, it’s almost time for another New Years.

In fact, it’s coming so fast that I may not get my letter to you in time. Cormick the leprechaun told me that the letters are supposed to be sent before the holiday! I would have written to you sooner but I’ve been so busy. There is so much to get done before the New Year can start that I totally forgot about writing this letter to you. My job is a lot like Santa Claus’ job, we both have things we have to check twice. He checks his Christmas list and I have to check all the clocks and calendars in the world twice. It wouldn’t be very good if some calendar tried to sneak in the wrong year.

They have tried it a couple of times! Someone tried to go backwards instead of forward with the years. It is not very nice, not everyone wants to go back in time. Just think about it, if we went backwards then instead of being a year older on your next birthday you would be a year younger. Instead of going up a grade in school you would go back to the one you just finished. Everything would be so mixed up. Everyone would already know what was going to happen because it had already happened once. This is so confusing it hurts my head just thinking about it. That’s why I have to check every clock to make sure they are all going forward like they are supposed to and every calendar to make sure they are all set on the correct year. Do you know how many clocks and calendars there are in the world? Millions and millions of them and I have to check them all twice, it takes a lot of time, and I never have enough time.

Have you ever had a day when it feels like all you do is run around trying to get all your work done, you know, school, homework, chores, whatever you have to do and you just can’t get it all done. That’s how I feel all the time. There is so much to do and no time to get it all done.

The only really important job I have is checking and double checking all the clocks and calendars so I had better get moving or the New Year will be here and I won’t be ready. I’ll try to get this delivered to you before New Year’s Day but if I don’t I hope you have a great New Year’s eve and a wonderful, busy New Year.

Late as usual,

Father Time

Letter from Santa Claus

Ho Ho HO

Merry Christmas!!

I just thought I’d take a few minutes and send you a quick note. Your watcher elf told me that you’ve been very good, most of the time this year. I am very glad to hear that. I like good little boys and girls.

I haven’t gotten your letter yet but I’ll bet you’ve got it written and it’s in the mail. This time of year my delivery elves are very, very busy gathering up all the mail for me to read. My Searcher elves have also been very busy checking out all the new toys and things that children will be asking for this year. There are so many new items shown on TV that I can’t always keep up with them. The Searchers go to all of the human stores, they have even figured out how to use computers in your library’s to find all the new stuff. They then bring me back pictures so I can see what everyone wants.

Sometimes they even buy one and bring it back to the North Pole so we can all play with it. That’s how we know if a toy is right or not. Sometimes no matter how much you ask for something I might not bring it if I think it is something that could hurt you, or that you wouldn’t play with after Christmas Day.

Sometimes the TV makes them look like so much fun and then when you actually play with them, they aren’t much fun at all! I try to make sure every gift I give is something you will truly enjoy for a long time.

Well, I’d better get back to reading all the million of letters and finding the best gifts for everyone. I can’t wait to read your letter.

Merry Christmas

Santa Claus and all the North Pole elves, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blizten and Rudolph too.

P.S. I hope you leave us lots of cookies! I really love cookies when I’m delivering my Christmas surprises!
