What if you’re awake when Santa comes?

Ask CrashHowdy!

The first of the questions answered by Elf Crash Murphy is here and you can listen to it in the player below.

The question has to do with what to do if you’re awake when Santa comes to your house. What will Santa do?

This is a great first question for Crash to answer. And he is a good one to answer it because he usually sees Santa while he is delivering to different houses.

3 Months Until Christmas

3 Months Until Christmas

North PoleHappy Fall Greetings from the North Pole!

It is just three months until Christmas!

The nights have become frosty here at the North Pole and we have already had a lot of snow.

The seasons are definitely turning.

Despite what I wrote last week the mail still keeps coming in to the North Pole about Santa and where he is.

Some seem to think that Santa is kind of old and can’t take care of himself on a trip like this.

Others think that Santa is sort of fat and too out of shape to be taking a journey on foot.

Let me dispel some of those thoughts.

Santa is younger than you think and he is actually in excellent shape.

Hard to tell with that big heavy red suit you see him wear so often.

It is tough to report this but I cannot tell you right now where Santa is.

You see, we haven’t heard from him since he left.

He could be anywhere by now.

He said he would be traveling on foot. But eventually he is going to run into the ocean or have to cross a big empty area where getting to another place will require getting on a boat or taking a plane or something.

But we haven’t heard from him yet to know if that has happened.

I can tell you this. The guys in the tracking department are going crazy.

It’s their job, you see, to keep track of Santa but for this trip Santa just wouldn’t allow it.

Santa said he would eat by making friends. He said he would find shelter by building it, if he needed to.

He said he would get clothes and supplies and the things he needs by working for it.

Santa knows how to do all this stuff.

But he said his purpose in going wasn’t to test his skills of survival or even friend making.

Santa said he wants to see the real world from the ground. He wants to meet with people everywhere to see how they live, hear what they think about and talk about what they know.

He was kind of excited to take such a trip. Even if Mrs. Claus wasn’t too happy about it.

The tracking department, after about a month decided that with Santa nowhere to be found it would be good training to send trackers elves out there to see if they can find him.

So far nobody has spotted him.

I’ll keep you posted if we get any news from him. Meanwhile, we’re proud today to launch the first radio news report of the season from Kringle Radio. You can hear it through the player below.

Kringle Radio News Begins Updates

Ask CrashGreetings!

Just a quick post today to let you know that the first radio report of Operation Merry Christmas 2017 will be released tomorrow with our news update.

The radio news team is back this year with all the same voices you heard from last year. Between now and the week of Christmas you will hear regular reports from Elf Frank and Elf Crash.

Last season’s news reports still receive a lot of mail here at the North Pole.

Kids especially have questions they ask of Crash. Hopefully he will find time to answer them all this year between now and Christmas.

Still No Sign of Santa

Still No Sign of Santa

North Pole UpdateThis weekend marks two full months since we last saw Santa and many of the folks here at the North Pole are growing in their concerns. Even Mrs. Claus is beginning to express concerns.

Even though Santa told us where he was going and even though he told us that we would not hear from him for a while people here at the North Pole and now around the world are starting to wonder if something is really wrong.

What makes everyone so nervous is the fact that Santa would not guarantee his return home before Christmas. In fact, Santa was very clear in stating that he did not know how long he would be gone. He said it was “uncertain”.

And now Mrs. Claus may be joining the ranks of those elves unhappy about all this. Although Mrs. Claus has ardently supported Santa and spoken in his defense since this strange story began today in a candid interview with me Mrs. Claus said “it wouldn’t hurt for him to check in with me”.

The statement caused everyone in the room to grow suddenly very quiet. Mrs. Claus had been talking about plans for the elf parade when someone burst in with a question about Santa and whether he would be home in time for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Mrs. Claus began to talk about Santa needing his time away but quickly and candidly remarked how much she missed him and how much she wanted to talk to him.

That has caused the interest in searching for Santa to enjoy a renewed energy at the North Pole. The Flight Command Center has been hard at work for over a month trying to locate Santa but serious and more widespread search efforts are now underway.

School Classes Encouraged to Track Santa Together

School Classes Encouraged to Track Santa Together

Santa TrackersHi everyone!

In many parts of the world it is a new school year. We usually get a lot of questions and feedback from school teachers at this time of the year.

Many gather questions from their students and it is my job, with the help of a few others, to answer them.

It is a service we are happy to perform.

But I was reminded today that school classrooms are excellent places to track Santa.

Even though school is out for most people on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning we track Santa year round and many school classes follow our site.

We thank you for that. We encourage teachers and school club leaders to sign up at SantaTrackers.org as official organized Santa Tracker groups.

Santa tracking is, after all, an educational endeavor. Students learn geography. Students learn culture and traditions. And, of course, there is also the science of Santa to study as well as part of your Santa Tracking.

So don’t be shy, Teachers! Go ahead and register your class as official Santa Trackers. And ask us any questions you want.

That is what we are here for.
