It has come to management's attention that the group of Santa's elves who snuck away to Kansas City last year to put on Winter Magic is at it again - except this time they've added an ALL NEW experience out by Legends Shopping Center. Now, we in management need you to know that visiting the event (held nightly from mid-November through the New Year) may be possible, but there will be no paid time once you leave the North Pole. You must use a vacation day. Furthermore... you will need to get back as soon as possible. We will, of course, need to meet our week's quota for Santa's gifts
