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.
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.
Ever since Elf Frank interviewed Elf Crash the other day and Crash speculated that if Santa isn’t around someone else would deliver for him our phones have been ringing off the hook and the mail coming into the North Pole Post Office has been off the charts.
Let me be clear right now: I don’t think Santa plans on missing Christmas. Yes, I know Santa is missing. And I know he hasn’t been around for months. But he said he would be back and I trust in that. So I personally don’t think there is anything to this rumor.
But Elf Crash is pretty certain that Santa has a plan in place if he can’t be here. And wait til you hear who he thinks will take Santa’s place if Santa can’t be here this year.
It will blow you away. Click the player below to listen!
Plus there is a world map there that shows you how Flight Command divides up the world and what we know about certain areas of the world and how they affect Santa’s flight.
Also, aside from becoming an elf and being a Santa Tracker, you can also register your location on Santa’s map. It’s pretty cool – because you can see all the areas of the world where Santa has trackers helping him on his flight.
Like always, we will have the news program steaming live on Kringle Radio – and now I’m hearing rumors of a program just for Santa trackers alone that will air when Santa tracker check-ins begin.
In all, we have an epic year of Santa tracking planned that you don’t want to miss!
