Sep 19 - Back to School – Halloween’s Around the Corner!

Hi Everyone!

Well I guess you’re all back in school and seeing all your friends just like the elves. I hope you all had a great summer and did a lot of different things, just like all of us!

So do you all like your teachers and school? What’s your favourite part of the day at school? Most of the elves like lunch and recess because it’s a good gathering time with friends to talk about how the day is going.

Guess what we are all looking forward to now? Yes! It’s Halloween! Lots of goodies and different costumes. What a fun time coming up! Have you all picked out or decided what you want to be? It sure is a fun time of the year and we all learn different things from it.

Well, it sure gets dark up here in the North pole really early now. So the elves have to work quickly on their chores and school work. Don’t forget to be good to others and do your chores too! You need to make sure you stay on the “Nice” List!

Bye now,

Santa and Mrs Claus

Jul 08 - Summer Break…But Still Lots to Do!

Hello Everyone!

My, the summer is moving right along quickly isn’t it? Our elves are getting caught up on their chores before they can do any vacation time – there is so much to do to make sure we are ready for Christmas!! Soon the mail will start, but we do know that Halloween comes before Christmas, so we must have some fun with that too.

So, I hope you all passed into your next grade and you will have a good summer! It would sure be a shame to be in Summer School, because you didn’t Get something right – but if so at least it’s an opportunity to make it better! Ho Ho!

Now that summer is getting hotter, we have to all remember to think about our campfires. We have been working with Smokie the Bear to help us do some park ranger work to keep our forests nice and safe; after all, the animals all need a safe home! So make sure you remember your fire-smarts!

Ah yes, there is never a dull moment up here. We also have our good helpers, our elves that venture out each year to be a part of the “Elf on the Shelf” team. They’re getting all their notebooks and supplies ready, so they can keep an EYE on everyone to make sure you are all doing your part to keep sharing and caring with and for others.

Oh my! There are the Reindeer calling me to the stables! So, got to go until next time.

Be good, be safe, and keep thinking of others!

Ho Ho Ho!

Apr 29 - End of School Year on the Horizon!

Hello Everyone!

Well here it is, May, and we are all enjoying School again. Just keep saying to yourself as you get closer to Grade 12, that I will soon be able to go out into the world like Mom and Dad. I’ll start my own adventure – and see if what I learned in school was of any help! If it was, as it surely will be believe it or not, where can I learn more to make my life goals easier?? Can I go on to bigger and better things?

Yes!

You will learn quick about the things Mom and Dad helped you with and the things they told you. You will learn how right and wrong they may have been depending on the subject. Life is there for you to help and learn from others.

Now what can you do is the next thing you will need to ask yourself. What can I do to make things better for my family, the world, and me? Remember it’s not the knowledge you have, It’s how you use it!

Good luck and carry on!

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,

Santa

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!
