Merry Christmas Eve!
Since it was Christmas Eve, the managers dressed up and wore silly hats. Jim outside himself.
Shortcake worked a 12 hour day. She was up bright and early, before the sun, to be at Santaland at 6am. The people came at 7am, and the line started to build up after 9am. It wasn't so bad, but we were in HR for most of the day. Of course Justin Time came by to visit.
Santa went on a world tour around the Village today. It was very exciting!
Shortcake received her 3 year pin today! Krampus came in, trumpeting loudly, and proclaimed to the entire room that Shortcake was being presented with the pin representing three years of service at Santaland. Shortcake jumped up and down, and curtsied, and made a speech thanking everyone for their help and support and acknowledged the pin being given to her (two years later).
Shortcake was very alert for the first 2 hours, almost alert for the next 3, and got a second wind in the afternoon. Genie came in at noon to help Shortcake out, so Santa had two strawbosses taking care of him today. Shortcake was able to do some cleaning before Santaland closed - she washed water cups and wiped down the coffee station. Near the end of the day she helped out at the Village exit. And at the very end of the day, she escorted Santa through the register area, through the employee elevators, and up to the roof where he got in his sleigh and started his trip around the world.
