Tibou saves the Santa Claus tour
Tibou is a very lucky boy, he works in Lapland. What? You don’t know Lapland? Lapland is a land covered with snow where many reindeers and fir trees live, but it’s especially the country of Santa Claus.
Besides, Tibou doesn’t live in Lapland for nothing! This lucky guy works with Santa Claus!
What is Tibou’s job? He is Santa’s right hand man and he helps him all year long, no matter the task.
Santa Claus is very happy to have Tibou with him. Indeed, Santa Claus is clumsy so he knows he can count on Tibou.
Moreover, Tibou saved last Christmas by helping Santa Claus in a heroic way…
*One year ago*
“Santa Claus! You are very late! It’s already 11 in the evening and you still haven’t started distributing the presents!” cried Tibou when he saw Santa finally walking through the door of the cottage.
“I know Tibou, I was on vacation on an island paradise… Then I didn’t see the time passing… And I made a mistake with the time changes…” explained Santa.
“Jump in the sleigh, the reindeers are ready and your sack is full. Be quick!’
“My dear Tibou, I don’t think you understand the situation. I’m supposed to finish the distribution at midnight, which is in an hour. That’s impossible. Usually I complete this distribution in 5 or 6 hours.”
“Is it a big deal if the gifts are dropped off after midnight?”
“Yes Tibou, if I distribute the gifts after midnight the magic of Christmas will cease forever. But I have to face the facts, no matter what I do the magic of Christmas will disappear because of me…”
“No Santa, it’s impossible! I will find a solution.”
Tibou grabbed his scarf, put on his mittens and his hat and went out of the cottage.
“Follow the Tibou’s adventures with your kids!”
Tibou sat on a rock and racked his brains trying to find a solution.
He looked longingly at the moon and his watch. Suddenly, a genious idea came to his mind.
“Since we are aware of time because the moon appears and disappears to give rhythm to the days and nights, it is therefore to her that I must turn!”
Tibou made big signs to the moon and shook his handkerchief so that she could notice him.
“Hey! Ho! Moon? Can you hear me? Hey! I need your help!”
“Who is disturbing me at this hour?” asked the moon.
“It’s me, Tibou, I need help!” shouted Tibou.
“What do you want, my darling?”
“I need you to stop time please.”
“Stop time? But why is that?”
Then Tibou explained the whole story as well as his reasoning and the moon understood.
“So you would like me to stay longer and the sun to come a little later than usual, is that it?”
“Yes that’s it!” exclaimed Tibou.
“I’m afraid there’s a problem. I’m willing to stay longer, but the sun is very temperamental and he can’t stand being late. I doubt very much that he will accept this request.”
“But it is absolutely necessary that I speak to him, it is very important!”
“I understand, let me call him, I am sure we can talk to him through the silence of the universe.”
“Sun! Sun!” called the moon.
“What!? I can’t even sleep peacefully anymore?” grumbled the sun.
The moon and Tibou explained to the sun the situation in which they found themselves.
“I don’t care about Christmas and I don’t like being late. I don’t want the moon to stay any longer. It’s no.” the sun answered curtly.
“But… Is there really nothing I can do to make you agree to delay the coming of the day? It’s very important Mister Sun…” said Tibou with a small voice.
“Because you think you are smarter than me? Very well. Answer one question, just one, and I’ll agree to come later if your answer is correct. However I highly doubt that a little boy like you could answer it.”
“Thank you sun! I want to answer that question!”
“Very well. What has two feet usually and 32 once a year?” said the sun in a defiant tone.
Tibou put his head in his hands, closed his eyes and began to think as best he could.
After 5 minutes of thinking he looked at the sun which was still laughing at him.
“It’s easy,” said Tibou after a long moment, “A man stands on two legs and reindeer on four. Santa Claus has two legs and once a year he goes on a sleigh ride with his eight reindeer with a total of 32 legs. So this is Santa Claus!”
The sun blushed and got angry. But he promised to give Tibou and Santa an extra 4 hours to do their Christmas delivery.
When Santa heard the news, he hurried to finish his presents distribution. The delivery was even finished early and the magic of Christmas did not disappear.
Not only did all the children receive a Christmas present, but Santa announced to Tibou that he would take his place when he will be retired. Tibou was the proudest little boy on earth that night!
