It sure is cold here in the North Pole! I like to stay wrapped in my nice, warm red coat. Even then, I get the shivers at times. Would you like to hear a way I stay toasty warm?
I just got a letter. It asked which drink I liked best. “Santa, you go all over the world. What do you like better: cow, goat, or camel’s milk?”
Mrs Claus has been very busy today. She was trying a new cookie recipe. It was a very special recipe for reindeer cookies!
Sometimes I like to do something to make Mrs. Claus feel special, to thank her for all she does. I had the perfect chance to surprise her the other day when she was teaching a gingerbread cookie class at the shop. She would be out of the house for a few hours, so I decided to spend that time making a surprise dinner!
Mrs. Claus likes to try all kinds of new food. And I like to bring her back fun things to cook with. Last time I brought her back some squid tubes and tentacles from Italy.
Would you like to hear a funny story about the squid tubes and tentacles?
Mouse, the littlest Elf, is getting to be a big girl! She is only 106 years old, which is still young for a Christmas elf. But that is about when elves start to lose their baby teeth and get their “big elf” teeth.
All her elf friends had lost a tooth already. She was the last one she thought. She waited and waited and tried wiggling and wiggling. But none of her teeth were loose. “Santa Claus,” she asked me “Am I ever going to lose a tooth?” “Of course you will. You just have to be patient,” I said.
A tradition is something special you do every year. At the North Pole, we have many Christmas traditions.
Mrs. Claus has traditions too. One of hers is to build a great big gingerbread house.
Would you like to know what it is like at the North Pole? It can be a pretty silly place! Would you like to hear about a morning with the elves?

Every weekend before Christmas, the elves put on a big parade. Did you know that? We have a lot of fun. After all, everyone at the North Pole loves a parade! Do you like parades?
Tonight, Mrs. Claus and the Christmas Baking Elves put on their big parade. They make all the yummy Christmas treats at the North Pole. Would you like to hear about their parade?
A lot of kids ask me, “Santa Claus, what is your favourite treat?” or “What kind of cookie does Santa like best”, or even, “What should I leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve?”
Can I tell you a little Santa Claus secret? Well, read on my friend!
I was busy this morning. I visited many places!
The places I visited do something special today. It is called Saint Lucia’s Day. It is also called Saint Lucy’s Day. It is a day about Light winning over Darkness. And that is what Christmas is about in many ways too!
Different people eat different things at Christmas. It is part of what makes Christmas special for them. In Norway, Christmas would not be Christmas without a special fish dish called “lutefisk”. You say it “loo-ta-fisk”.
