Santa Claus’ Magic Elves

Did you ever wonder why hardly anyone ever sees one of my ?  This might help :)

Elves are fast.
Elves are cool.
Elves watch all the kids at school!

Elves are fast,
And sneaky too.
Elves are good at watching you!

Elves are quick.
Elves are slick.
Elves tell all to Ol’ Saint Nick!

If you’re Naughty,
If you’re Nice,
You’re on my List
I’ll check it twice!

Yes, elves are good at watching you!
They like to watch all you do.
But maybe you could spot them too?

If you listen,
If you hurry,
You might see things that are blurry!

If you look
Behind a shelf,
You might catch a tiny elf.

Looking far,
Looking near,
You might see a pointy ear.

But elves are fast.
Elves are quick.
Elves are smart.
They know the tricks!

Elves are very
Hard to see
And that is why
I say to thee

You may try
You may be keen
But I’m telling you
Elves won’t be seen!  :)

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  Quite often the elves tell me they think someone might have seen them.  Have you ever seen an elf?  (Scroll down to leave your message for me or to see what others have written!)

  95. santa whats yor phone number

    Reply from the Elves:

    So many kids want to talk to Santa right now. The best way to reach him is at .

    If you’d like to talk to someone because you are sad about something then the best thing the elves can do to help you is to suggest that you talk to your family about it. If you still want to talk then you can always call the great people at one of the phone numbers on this page: (make sure to choose a phone number for your country!). We like to think of them as “elves in training”!

  120. I think I’ve seen an elf before, it’s because my mom says that the people who dress up as Santa are really his elves. That is why the hats usually cover their ears! I’ve seen people dressed up like Santa so… I believe I’ve seen an elf!

  121. How are your elves?Could you ask them if they can make me an extra special laptop so i can email you from that?
