Boxing Day and Christmas Elves

Posted by Santa Claus on December 26th, 2008

Today is at the North Pole!  Do you know what 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 come back to the North Pole at Christmas.  Not all Christmas 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?

  20. Lauren

    Santa, you are so nice! I wish you would give me a box. I might come to the North Pole next year to celebrate Boxing Day with you. Marie (you’re sister, my mom) said I could come!
    Bye Uncle Santa, ILOVEYOU!

  21. drew

    tell me your elves names!

  22. ETHAN

    once I got a present from you that had a pricetag on it

  23. Chrissy

    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!

  48. Nathaniel

  49. sarah

    you are awsome

  50. Elianna

    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!

  106. Bethany

    Hi Santa! That is so nice, what you do for the elves on Boxing Day. My family and me don’t celebrate boxing day. But it’s so nice that you give magic boxes the the elves on boxing day. 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
