Greetings From the North Pole, Part XI

For several years now, we have received a Christmas letter from an Elfin correspondent, Siberius Quill. This morning we found the brief, handwritten note below:

It reads as follows:
Christmas 2013
My Dearest Children!
My apologies for the shortness of this message -- accidents happen, even at the North Pole! We were celebrating the Birthday of Brevity Parchment, & let's just say 1,171 candles and miles of tinsel and wrap do not mix! A more thorough update will follow soon -- look for it when you return home.
We certainly hope everything is well up North -- I'll post more when we hear more!
