Is Santa hard to work for?

Hi Haylee -- Merry Christmas!
Santa has very high standards and he is probably one of the hardest workers in the world. Because his job is so big he does require that we work hard too and that we do what we do very well.
Santa is a big believer in training and education. It took me nearly 70 years as an apprentice before Santa would let me write for him. And to this day he remains my editor.
So, in one sense, yes, we can say that Santa is "demanding".
But remember, Santa is also very kind. He never treats us harshly. In fact, he overflows with kindness. It is the fondest wish of every elf to work for Santa and many try for many years to become an elf at the North Pole. I think it is because Santa is so kind to work for.
I don't think he would ever ask us to do something that he isn't willing to do himself.
