All About the Elf Parade

All About the Elf Parade


The question Elf Crash Murphy answers today is about going to the Elf Parade.

As you know, the Elf Parade is held every Thanksgiving Day here at the North Pole.

We report on it every year.

The Elf Parade is kind of like a kick-off to Christmas.

Our Thanksgiving Day at the North Pole is a day off, you see.

Like many people, we gather together and enjoy a nice meal.

But we do lots of other things, too.

In the morning, we hold the elf parade. Then, in the evening, after we have had the traditional Thanksgiving feast, we all light up our houses for the first time for Christmas.

The elf parade was started many, many years ago when we used to watch the other parades that people hold on Thanksgiving Day.

Someone thought it would be a good idea to hold a North Pole parade that Santa could be in here at the North Pole.

When Santa heard about it he said that he had enough parades to be in on Thanksgiving and it was his idea instead to make it an Elf Parade.

The elves, of course, loved the idea.

The Elf Parade at the North Pole has a lot of the same things other parades do. There are big floats and marching bands. And, of course, big crowds.

But the highlight of the parade, no doubt, is the Parade of Elves on Trikes.

Elves, you see, love tricycles.

Even big elves.

Here at the North Pole big elves ride big trikes. It’s a goofy thing, I know. But they just love them and they decorate their trikes like crazy for the Elf Parade. There are lights and balloons and streamers and all kinds of inventive things that elves do to their trikes for the Elf Parade.

So yeah, we can understand why you would want to come to the North Pole to see that.

Maybe some day you will!

Calling the North Pole

Calling the North Pole

Happy Saturday!

How are ya?

It’s a busy Saturday here at the North Pole.

The question for Crash Murphy today is kind of personal. He’s asked how someone can call him.

Now, you all know that for a couple of months we have been telling you about Santa’s phone number.

That is only natural. When people think of the North Pole they think of Santa.

But did you know that you can talk to any of us here at the North Pole?

The rest of us don’t get phone calls like Santa does. But you can still call us if you want to.

When are you too old for Santa?

When are you too old for Santa?

Hello everyone!

The North Pole Post Office just keeps receiving the questions coming in for Elf Crash Murphy. It’s great to see so many of you already in the Christmas spirit!

But today’s question is a tough one.

It comes from someone who I think is maybe thinking they are too old for Santa Claus.

Click the player below to listen to how Elf Crash answers the question.

But I would just remind you of something: kids are not the only ones who follow our web site.

In fact, we’re soon to release a new video and on that video is some information from one of the biggest Santa fans in all the world.

He just happens to be more than 90 years old.

Now, I won’t tell you anything further about it because it is a surprise that I think we’re saving for you until after Halloween. But it is a fun project and one that has surprised us not by the kids that participate but by all the adults that have jumped in on it too.

You’re never too old for Santa!

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.
