Workshop, Reindeer On Track for Christmas

Workshop, Reindeer On Track for Christmas

Hi everyone, good news!

Our meetings at the North Pole this week showed that everything is on track so far for Operation Merry Christmas 2017.

Mrs. Claus had each department head report on their goals and their progress in our most recent meetings and the news was all good. Every department at the North Pole is right on track.

Mrs. Claus said she was especially proud of the accomplishment given that Santa has been gone for nearly 3 full months now.

This has also happened despite the big project Santa left to build thousands and thousands of new sleighs.

That project is still shrouded in secrecy and nobody really knows what Santa has in mind for all of those sleighs.

Some cannot help but wonder if they are tied to the very full class schedule at sleigh pilot school for elves who want to be sleigh drivers.

The news at sleigh pilot school was good, too – the classroom portion of the program is finished for the first group of enrollees and they begin their first test flights this week.

The North Pole is a very busy place right now but hearts are happy because things are coming together.

About the only thing that remains amiss is the fact that Santa just isn’t here. We don’t know where he is but Mrs. Claus keeps reminding us not to worry about it.

I did ask her after the meeting if she had heard from Santa and she said, “No”.

I can’t tell if she is upset about that or not, but she had a funny look on her face.

How to Call Santa

How to Call Santa

Hi everyone!

We told you last month about how to call Santa.

Believe it or not, there have been a lot of questions about that.

In this report from Elf Frank and Crash we hear exactly how to call Santa.

Remember, this is a toll free call. There is never any charge for anything associated with Santa.


Santa’s number is easy to remember. It is 866-84-SANTA.

For some kids, it has been difficult to know how to dial SANTA.

As Crash explains, the full number is 866-847-2682.

We do encourage you to call Santa and tell him anything you want. He loves to hear from you and he listens to each and every message. We have noticed that ever since we published the number Santa has heard from folks of all ages.

Santa just loves that.

Some will leave a wish list for Santa on his voice mail. Some will just call to say Merry Christmas. Others will even sing or just ask Santa how he is doing.

It doesn’t matter. Santa loves to hear from you no matter what.

Question from a 3rd Grade Class

Question from a 3rd Grade Class

Hi everyone!

Today Elf Crash Murphy gets a question from an entire class of third graders.

This kind of thing happens all the time and we just love it. Hearing from teachers and students is one of the highlights of working in the Public Relations Department at the North Pole. Their questions are always the best.

That’s because they are always trying to learn. So we get questions from them about all kinds of things that other people don’t even think about. They ask about geography and the types of weather Santa will encounter on his flight. They ask about traditions and world cultures. They ask the deep questions.

But I just love this question today. The entire class wants to know if their teacher — Mrs. Cranston — is an elf.

What a great question!

You see, like many people this third grade class from Montana in the USA has learned that an elf can look like anyone — and they can live just about anywhere. You don’t have to live at the North Pole to be an elf. So this question is a really good one.

I can see why some of them think Mrs. Cranston is an elf. She is constantly working, she looks out for others and always gives.

I think it is a natural question.

And I think Elf Crash gives a very good answer. Click the player below to listen.

North Pole Celebrates a Thanksgiving Without Santa

North Pole Celebrates a Thanksgiving Without Santa


In another sign that Christmas is coming the first of several Thanksgiving celebrations was noted this week with Canadian Thanksgiving – a North Pole tradition.

Missing, of course, was Santa who loves this event and any other kind of Thanksgiving celebration.

“I’m sure, wherever he is, Santa is celebrating Thanksgiving,” Mrs. Claus said.

The continued absence of Santa at the North Pole still has folks here nervous.

In a way, they feel a little gypped because this is the time of year they normally get to see quite a bit of Santa.

He’s usually very absent for much of November and December as he visits with the children of the world in various locations.

Then right after Christmas Santa usually takes a bit of a break with Mrs. Claus and we don’t see much of him.

In the spring he’s busy with gardening and we do see him as that’s when he holds a lot of planning meetings and such.

But then he takes off for quite a while to vacation and visit relatives in far away places.

He’s usually back for Christmas in July and he keeps pretty close to home until November. The Halloween Party is also kind of a see-you-later party for us with Santa.

Well, he’s been gone since July 25th. And we’re missing him and we are worried about him.

Not hearing from him is the real problem. We just want to know that he is okay.

But Mrs. Claus today was smiling and didn’t appear concerned at all.

That’s so unlike her!

Believing in Santa Claus

Believing in Santa Claus

Ask CrashMerry Greetings!

Another great question today for Elf Crash Murphy asked by Josh in Melbourne (Australia! — Thanks, Josh!).

Josh very sincerely asks, “How do I make other kids believe in Santa?”

That’s a real concern. Many kids feel picked on when they tell others they believe in Santa. Some kids actually bully other kids for believing in Santa. It makes it so that sometimes some kids never tell others about their belief in Santa.

Nobody knows this kind of thing better than an elf.

When I travel the world and people ask me what I do I tell them, “Well, I’m an elf and I work for Santa”, they look at me funny. Many just don’t believe me. It is hard not to be a little hurt by that.

Crash talks about this good question. I think you all should listen to it in the player below.
