Once there was an elf named Frez. He got so nervous during Christmas time that he could eat two lunches at the elf cafeteria at once. He tried to be just too perfect in toy making and never thought they were good enough for the children. The time for delivery of the presents was getting closer. Nobody understood why Frez behaved in that
way and why he was asking for a larger elf suit than his size.

Then, one day Santa found out what the problem was and decided to solve it. Frez was not a young elf. He needed to feel he was special, so Santa gave him his own project called «special toys». There were lots of broken toys. Frez had to repair them with love. He was so glad to have such a project that he had only one lunch that day because he
had to hurry back to his tasks.

Frez is now so glad to transform the broken toys into something new. He has stopped eating so much food. He even wears his old suit now. He is happy.
