My job as an elf few years ago, worked as an elf at holiday resort in Lapland, in the north of Sweden. The resort was in forest. Visitors and workers stayed in small wooden cabins all around the forest. There was one large cabin where people ate meals. started work there in the middle of November and stayed until just after Christmas. Tourists used to stay at the resort for four days. On the first day, they arrived at the airport and travelled to the resort by coach. didnt have to work until the evening. Sometimes went skiing. Then, while the guests had their evening meal, worked behind the desk in the reception. helped people find their cabins, told them about the program and sold tickets for extra tours. didnt dress as an elf at that time; wore the hotel uniform. On day 2, and three other elves got up at about eight oclock in the morning. Of course, it was still dark at that time. In Lapland it gets light at about half past ten during the winter, and it gets dark again soon after two oclock. We dressed in our elf costumes and drove across the snow to cabin in the forest. Inside the cabin, there were huge presents We had to wrap the presents. There were mirrors in the cabin windows. These made us look very small. When tourists looked through the windows, they saw us as tiny elves. On the third day, we went to different cabin – Santas cabin! This was the day when the children finally met Father Christmas. The children would meet Santa and get toy. Then they came into the elves workshop to meet us. This room was full of toys and beautifully decorated with Christmas tree. and the other elves pretended to make toys and chatted to the children in our own elf language. The next day, the tourists went home and new group arrived. worked on reception again. Working as an elf was great fun, and magical way to spend Christmas!
