Christmas Elves and Singing Princesses
Christmas is fast approaching! All the Fire Pixie elves are out this week.. we're entertaining at holiday parties and Christmas-themed birthday parties all over the place, and having an absolute blast.
I love doing sing-a-longs this time of year because there are just so many fun Christmas carols to sing, and the kids are all so very enthusiastic about singing them. I can't seem to remember all the words to Frosty the Snowman (I keep forgetting the "thumpety-thump thump" bit) but it seems nobody else knows the words to that one either... so we just fake it.
Besides, when you're dressed as an Elf, if you sing with authority, nobody questions your version of the lyrics. :)
My favorite thing about doing holiday shows is that lots of people book 2, 3, or 4 entertainers at once. Being a part of a whole gaggle of Elves is unlike any other experience I can think of. Most of the time we work individually, but Christmas is one of those times when I get to play with lots of the other entertainers in the company and that is just so much fun! It's inspiring to watch Lanie twist balloons and play with puppets, or to face paint with Lena, or to do magic with Naomi. I love how doing larger shows really builds the community and camaraderie between entertainers and strengthens the Fire Pixie culture.
We've been personalizing lots of copies of our Princess Christmas Video too. This is a lot of fun.. I really enjoy seeing the messages people are sending to their daughters, granddaughters and nieces.. it's pretty special to get a glimpse into the Christmas Morning gifts these little girls are going to receive. (And I wish someone was taking ME to Disneyland this year!)
Here's our free video.. show it to your favorite little girl this week to get her all excited about Christmas!
