Friends, it’s 43 weeks until Christmas and it’s a great time to be an elf. It’s a wonderful time to be an elf.
The best decision I ever made was to become an elf. And you can become an elf, too.
I think I’ve told you about the Santa tracking thing before. I never did it much when I was a kid but after visiting the Tracking Center earlier this past year I can see the beauty of it. In fact, I wish now I had tracked Santa when I was a kid.
Of course, I do not think tracking Santa was as much a thing then as it is now. Now it’s like…wow!
Have you seen the stuff they are doing over at SantaTrackers.net?
It’s SO much fun. In fact, I might quit my elf job here just to become a tracker elf over there. That’s how much fun it is.
Ok, not really. My Mom would be really mad at me. She was so proud to see me get this elf job. She’s afraid I might mess it up. She’s always telling me how to be a better elf.
Moms are like that. If I was flipping burgers somewhere Mom would be telling me how to flip them better. That’s just what Moms do.
But she’s seriously proud I’m working for Santa. She says that will forever look awesome on my resume.
SantaTrackers.net is awesome because it’s becoming a social media place just for elves. So many cool elves there. And they will be doing lots of cool elf stuff year round.
Elf Ernest was telling me about a sad letter he received from a tracker elf named Julia. She’s seven and she told Ernest that even though she was a tracker elf she didn’t feel any different.
Julia might not know it but her letter is spurring a lot of the changes going on there at SantaTrackers.net. It’s a place where they want new elves to feel like real elves.
So many think you have to come to the North Pole to feel like an elf. And I get it. They want to live in the snow, eat a lot of candy canes, see flying reindeer and wear pointy shoes.
I used to be that way.
But that’s not what feeling like an elf is like.
Anyway. I’ll explain more about that later. For now, get over to SantaTrackers.net and become an elf if you have not done so already. And if you have done it go back over there and see what’s going on.
