Cast Your Metal Charm for Answer the Telephone Like Buddy the Elf Day!

December 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


According to National Day Calendar, December 18 is Answer the Telephone Like Buddy the Elf Day and encourages everyone to add some elf behavior to their day!

“Buddy the Elf was played by Will Farrell in the 2003 movie Elf. Answering the phone like Buddy the Elf not only surprises unsuspecting callers, but it brightens their day, too. As your day goes along, it will most certainly brighten yours! Who can resist a giggle or a smile when being elf-like.”

HOW TO OBSERVE #AnswerThePhoneLikeBuddyTheElfDay

“Simply answer the phone and say “(Insert your Name) here, what’s your favorite color.” As you answer, smile and spread some joy. It’s nearly impossible not to. Encourage others to do the same. If you call someone, don’t be surprised by the elf-like voice.”

Additional ways to celebrate as you answer the phone include dressing up and creating your own tiny-sized cast metal elfen flare – a telephone, ugly sweater, stocking and more to choose from amongst the molds of the Cabinet of Curious Castings.  You can dress like an elf, wear a Santa hat or an ugly sweater. Or, just put on your happy face and pour metal to celebrate our otherworldly and charming elfen selves and friends.

You pour lead-free pewter, do finishing work and finalize with hardware/base/color to create your sculpture, jewelry, ornament, magnet, plant charm or what-have-you?

$10 per casting. Approximately 30-60 minutes.  Adult and kid-friendly atmosphere.  This class is in the Casket Factory Building and not in the WOW bus.  Sanitized space/tools and masks required.

Another way to celebrate Answer the Phone Like Buddy the Elf Day is by telling elf jokes. It’s all in the spirit of the day. Elves spread fun where ever they go.  Q: What kind of music do elves like best?  A: Wrap music!
