The Bud's Christmas Story
Once upon a time in a village called Buffalo there lived a clan of little people called Buds. Now this was a happy little clan of people who loved to dance and sing and laugh and be silly and they all loved each other very much. BUT most of all, the Buds loved to create things. They would sneak out in the night and scavenge dumpsters and burn piles and roadside ditches and trash heaps and then drag all of their treasures back to the castle.
The excitement they shared upon their return was contagious as they all turned everything over and over and ooohed and aaaahed and shared all of their ideas for the wonderful things they would make with their “treasures”. They divided them up – each taking the things that they could turn into the best creations. And soon their workshops were abuzz with the sounds of hammers and drills and paint brushes and glue guns and staple guns. Soon there would be piles of treasures turned into beautiful tables and buffets and chairs and lamps and trunks and beds and cupboards – and some of their treasures turned into wonderful works of art and doodads and thingamajigs and whatchamacallits and whoseits.
When Christmas time came around the Buds got even more excited and went into over drive! The commotion in the workshops was intense! The hammers hammered faster and the drills drilled louder and the paint brushes slapped in overtime as the clan worked with their treasures turning them into extra special wonderfully awesome treasures to share with everyone! They added bits of sparkle and ribbon and greenery and stars and glitter to their treasures – all the while shouting out Christmas carols as they worked! Soon their piles of finished treasures was stacked to the ceilings – in fact some of them were hanging from the ceilings – and they had to move some of them out in front of the castle to make room for everything!
The Buds were so proud of all of their treasures and were sure that there were others out there like them who would LOVE treasures made out of other treasures – so they decided to open the castle doors on December 1,2,3 and 4 to let the entire world share in their excitement! Then they decided treasures weren’t enough – they would serve coffee and cookies, and give presents, and stay open late on Thursday nite, and sing carols and wear funny hats and share not just their treasures – but their love as well!
So, they have asked me to let you know that they will be waiting on Thursday, December 1st at 9am and will stay open all the way til 9pm – and then do it all over again on Friday and Saturday from 9 to 6 and on Sunday from 10 to 5! AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH – they are going to open up the castle doors again on Saturday, December 10 and Saturday, December 17 from 9 to 6 both days to give even more of you a chance to share in all of their treasures!
