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.

Ever.

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.

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.

Why do the same reindeer fly every year?

Why do the same reindeer fly every year?

Ask CrashHappy October Greetings!

Elf Crash Murphy answers a question today about the reindeer.

Kids are always asking about the reindeer. Sometimes I think reindeer are more popular than elves.

But this question is a fair question. Why does Santa use the same reindeer every year? Why doesn’t he shake it up a little bit and use some of the other reindeer?

And it is true. You usually read right how about the many thousands of reindeer who help out with Santa in one way or the other every Christmas eve. So this is a very good question (thank you, Florence!).

And I like Crash’s answer. Listen to it below.

Does Norad Really Escort Santa?

Does Norad Really Escort Santa?

Ask CrashHowdy!

Elf Crash Murphy received another flight question today, this one about military jet escorts on Christmas Eve.

This is a really good question and I’m glad that Craig in the UK asked it. We get this question quite a bit for some reason.

Santa’s flight on Christmas Eve actually gets seen by a lot of people. We document those Santa sightings right here on Christmas Eve every year as part of our coverage of Santa’s flight.

But it is true that a lot of different aircraft try to be in the skies at the same time every Christmas when Santa is. That is kind of dangerous and one of the many reasons Santa has his own Santa trackers. There just cannot be enough eyes looking out for Santa’s safety on Christmas Eve.

We hope as you listen to these questions and answers from Crash that you consider joining the Santa effort and think of becoming an elf. Santa can always use more elves.
