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.

Kids Worried Santa Won’t Deliver

Kids Worried Santa Won’t Deliver

Yowza! Have we been buried in mail!

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!

What to Expect in Tracking Santa 2017

What to Expect in Tracking Santa 2017

Greetings Santa Fans!

If you haven’t noticed by now the North Pole is getting ready to track Santa for Santa. And there are lots of new things to share with you.

First of all, the Flight Command Center website has been totally redesigned.

It has great information about Santa, the sleigh and the reindeer.

And don’t miss the information about launching Santa, too.

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!
