Boxing Day and Christmas Elves

Posted by Santa Claus on December 26th, 2008

Today is Boxing Day at the North Pole!  Do you know what Boxing Day is?

Some people think silly things about Boxing Day.  Some say it is Boxing Day because people get mad at each other if they did not get good gifts from each other!  That is silly!  They should be happy someone thought of them!  Ho! Ho! Ho!

Some say it is Boxing Day because you have to throw out all the boxes from Christmas Day!  That is silly! You do not throw out boxes.  You recycle them!  Ho! Ho! Ho!

Well, we do have Boxing Day at the North Pole.  But it is not for any of those reasons.

You see, all the elves come back to the North Pole at Christmas.  Not all Christmas elves live at the North Pole after all.  Many are watching to see who is being naughty.  Many are busy doing other things for me.

But all the elves come home for Christmas!

And we also have fun on Boxing Day!  Boxing Day I give each of the elves a box.  In that box is all they will need.  It has all kinds of magic things just for elves.  Magic things elves need.  Things to see who is being Naughty or Nice!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  What magic things do you think Santa gives the elves in their boxes?

    My friend Chrissy said:

    I think the boxes include spy gear for spying on the children to see if they are NAUGHTY or NICE. But truly, every one is NICE. They mght not show it, but deep down, they are very SWEET and KIND. I think the boxes also include a list of tricks to play around with us kids’. Last year, you elves left me popcorn, toys and my Christmas elf. Thank you!

    My friend Elianna said:

    I think i should thank you Santa, for giving me my very 1st wish last year. Thank you so very much Santa and all elves!! You all in the North Pole(or not right now like Santa) thank you for last years’ present!!! You have to work hard on every single present you all make!! You elves have to be tired after all those requestes from different children all over the world and trying to remember who gets what and what goes where.(No offense, Santa) I would just tell Santa “Just ask another elf” and I would tell him that all the time. Something tells me that the elves went to school to be chirstmas elves. I know Santa grew up in the North Pole years & years ago! YA YA FOR SANTA AND HIS WONDERFULLY WONDERFUL ELVES!

You are nice, generous, sweet, caring, and really really great. Me and my little brother just wanted to say thank you for all the presents that you gave us every year. And for giving me my presents when my little brother wasn’t born yet. So.. thank you, Santa! Me and my little brother can’t wait to sit on your lap at my local mall this year!

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Leave A Message For Santa About “Boxing Day and Christmas Elves”

*Santa's Safety Tip:  Always check with an adult before giving out any information about yourself on the Internet.  It is ok to put your first name and city/country (e.g. Santa from the North Pole) if you want.  But, NEVER put your last name, email address, street address or phone number in your message -- Santa already has everything he needs for his "Naughty & Nice List"!

If you would like to send a letter to Santa and have him write back to you, please email Santa instead of leaving a comment here.


The elves check all comments before they appear here.  So, it might take a while before your comment appears.
P.S. The elves use spam- and naughty comment blockers that automatically delete those comments.
P.P.S. Your computer's IP address is ;)
