Apr 15 - Easter at the North Pole

Hello Everyone!

Do you know what’s coming up in just a few short days?? And who is coming to visit Santa and the elves??

Yes, that’s right, the Easter Bunny! We are all getting super excited and we’re ready to see our old friend. He’ll get to bounce right along through what little snow we have left here; our winter was late and short but we still got deep snow.

I wonder how many of his friends will come with him this year? As we always have a big party, and lots of Easter baskets! We have lots of candles around the outside area, a fantastic band of elves playing Easter songs and all the forest animals with their friends. They all come along and are very friendly with each other.

Also the Easter moon and stars are out, and the Northern Lights are just so beautiful! The party goes until we all have our Easter baskets and have had a chance to meet with all the wonderful people and animals that have made this a wonderful time. Then in the morning we all have a big breakfast together and then all the guests are on their way again.

So don’t forget to look North on that special time and maybe you will get to see the Easter Bunny coming Your way!

HO HO HO!

Mar 22 - Santa on Spring Break

Well hello everyone!

It’s now Spring Break, and we are all out to have some fun while our teachers at the North pole go and have a break. I guess they do it the same where you are.

We still have plenty of snow up here so most of us will still be out doing some of our winter sports, and some will be going on a winter hike. Also we have a few outdoor camp days where we also brush up on our winter activities. These activities help us get through the period of making new toys, and catching up on what is new in the electronics fields.

It’s crazy to think it won’t be long and we will all be moving up another grade in school and enjoying life as we get older. There sure has been lots of late snow in some areas, where you all live, as well as floods. But like everything else, we have to adjust to what comes in front of us, and make the best of it. We’re thinking of you all!

Well, we are off to spend a couple of happy days enjoying ourselves. Take care.

Santa and the Gang.

Oct 01 - October is here – Thanksgiving and Halloween are on the way!

Well hello everyone!

It’s time to tell you how the elves are doing now that they are all settled in to school, chores and homework. We have the same things to do as you do where you live…well almost. We have snow at the North Pole now so that means more repairs on the barns for all the animals, and making sure all the pathways are clear so we can get from one area to the next safely. Also we have to make sure the transport equipment is in good order to haul wood, plow the sidewalks and the roads – because we can’t have the reindeer flying all the time! We need to save their strength for pulling the shopping sleigh for Mrs. Claus, and for the short run sleigh trips to check and see if you’re all being good!

AHHHHHHHHHHH yes! Let’s not forget all the Thanksgiving and Halloween Decorations around the Farm! And of course all the costumes to get ready – it’s the month of October: time for family fun!  Hey, talking about fun, I hope you’re thinking about what you want to put on your list for me!

HO HO HO! See you soon!

Jul 16 - Bring on Summer Vacation!

Well here it is July 2018 already! I know a lot of you have been enjoying the weather and some fun travelling. Wow the new things you must have seen with your families and all the great things you must have tried!  Or maybe all the fun is still to come and you can’t wait until that special trip or vacation time. That’s the good part about Summer.

The cautious parts are making sure you have your sunscreen and some sunglasses and a hat. Just like in winter, we have to be prepared for the the good and bad things that the different seasons can bring to us and affect our everyday life.

Now just think as we get older we have so much to remember as we go through our everyday routines. We also have to guide the animals along to make sure they are safe from any danger or harm. Well thinking ahead a bit and knowing that every month and season brings on something new to the environment, which we must also look after, it makes for interesting times and new looks on life. Every time I look through my telescope and see what new things people are making, I wonder if they will ever make a car that will fly? Ho Ho Ho!

Well the other side of that coin, as they say, we look at the medical part where they are helping seniors be in better health and live a little bit longer and be healthier. Isn’t that a grand and wonderful thing?   Health and happiness over a flying car wins for me!

Well back to the workshop; as believe it or not I have a couple of letters to answer already!

Until August, Bye Bye,

Jun 20 - School’s Almost Out – We’re Getting To Work!

Hi Everyone!

Now it’s that magic Month where everyone gets out of School for a rest and tries to go to their favourite places, or somewhere new. Everyone will come back at the beginning of school and tell their friends what a time away they had on their Summer vacation.

We at the North Pole take a shorter time as we have got to get ready for the magic time of Christmas as there is so much to prepare for! All the animals, the Workshop, getting the sleigh in tip-top shape to carry all the special toys and gifts in just a few short months and make sure that we’re prepared for the weather.

It’s been a nice cool start to summer up here, so glad we did not get any heat waves! I hope all was well for all of you and your families, and I know the next fun holiday coming up will be when you start getting ready for Halloween!

Well it’s lunch time for me and I’ve got to help Mrs. Claus Make the Cookies…

Ho Ho Ho!

Apr 11 - April is Autism Awareness Month

This is an important month; the month of April is Autism aware month. I feel that it is so important to really understand different things that effect different families, in their everyday life. As I’m trying to understand more and more things that go on in the world and with families, I’m glad that with the help of others, I can be apart of the learning process and of what makes the world turn in our everyday movement.

Everything in life that helps the world be a better place for all, is worth being a part of. As they say knowledge and experience makes life interesting and Challenging!  I challenge you to take some time to become aware of Autism – learn more about it so we can all be more naturally accepting of it.

Thank you!

Mar 26 - Easter Bunny Helper

I wanted to share a little story about how we have fun at the North Pole with the Easter Bunny as we get ready for Easter!

Well, when it comes around to Easter time, Mr. Easter Bunny and some of his helpers come to Santa’s house to see if the elves and I have some time to help out a bit with Easter prep. The Easter Bunny and his team often reach out for help to go out early and plant the Easter eggs and other treats where ever they need them to go. He wants to make sure that all the children around the world will have a few Easter Eggs and treats to find on Easter morning.

Just like Christmas, it’s all about the Children and not about us!  It’s Called team work.  Just like when families stick together and make it all happen, no matter what we do it for or what the occasion is, we all work together to make it happen. Whats the old saying??? AHAAAAAAAAAAAA, I know! “ THE MORE THE MERRIER” – in anything that makes others happier. OR, we say, “Let A Little RAY of SUNSHINE into Your Heart.”

Well everyone, don’t forget on Easter morning: RISE and SHINE and look for your Easter eggs and treats! Don’t forget, it’s great family time!!

HO HO HO!!

Jan 17 - Christmas is Passed, Here Comes Valentines Day!

Hi Kids!

Just wanted to let you all know that Santa, the elves, and the reindeer, are all rested up and getting ready for Valentines Day. It was a great Christmas and we all worked really hard! We loved all the treats everyone left out for the reindeer and Santa; it sure helped me make it through that special night. Remember, Christmas is real team work.

Now we have to get back to reality of work, school, chores and being one big happy family. The winter weather was a little bit easier on Santa and the reindeer for travelling, thanks to Frosty and Mr. Wind.

Hope everyone is happy with their Christmas gifts and don’t forget – it’s not all about what you got it’s the thought of giving. Ho Ho Hoooooooooooo!

Don’t forget you can send me a letter anytime! Time for bed for me!

Goodnight All!

Santa and Family.

Oct 27 - Halloween Is Here – Christmas is Next!

Hi Everyone!

Well it’s getting closer to Christmas every day! WE SURE ARE BUSY at the North Pole! Some of you have already written a wish list to me, thank you!  Keep ’em comin’! I have a general idea of what gifts everyone wants at this time, but we’ll wait to see who changes their mind. Then we’ll get ready to fill the Santa bag with all the things that people have asked for.

When I take my Telescope and look all around at every city, town and community at this time I see it is Halloween. I say to our elves up here that I hope they are ready to have fun at the end of October with all their different costumes! We already have a lot of snow at the North pole too, so we’ll have to use our sleigh and snow skidoos to get around in – maybe even a few dog sleighs. Snow makes it really fun to get around up here, all kinds of fun ways to travel.

And don’t forget: watch for Elf on the Shelf soon!!

Well Mrs. Claus wants to go shopping for some winter supplies so we’d better get a move on and get big elf to hitch up the sleigh. So the next time you see me you had better have my chocolate chip cookies and milk out – and don’t forget some carrots for the reindeer!

Thanks Everyone!
