Beauty and the Beast — and Christmas. Does it get any better than that? Evidently after 25 years it does not get old — Disney is re-releasing the animated classic on DVD this October. The Enchanted Christmas tells a tale set within the story of the original feature, about Belle spreading Christmas cheer within the confines of Beast’s castle during her time there. The film’s all-star voice cast features Robby …

Biblical Proof of Santa Claus

The Bible says that Santa exists. This startling revelation comes to us at the North Pole in the form of a letter from a scientist, Dr. Jasper Bumgartner. Here is the full text of what he wrote: Dear Sirs, In the interest of scientific integrity I must admit to the recent discovery of evidence suggesting the existence of Santa Claus that pre-dates even Jesus Christ! In researching for another project …

Catching Santa: Ain’t Gonna Happen

When it comes to Santa simple logic just escapes people. For example, people think Santa keeps a list of kids who are “naughty” and kids who are “nice”. That story has been around for years. It ain’t true. We’ve told you that many times. And yet the story persists. It just is not logical. Nearly every letter that comes to the North Pole bears the words “I’m sorry” first. It …

It Ain’t About a Bird

Santa gets to see every letter sent to the North Pole eventually. But he has a lot of help in answering the thousands of letters that he receives each week. He’d love to answer each one personally, but he just can’t. And, in many of the letters, the things people ask can clearly be answered by someone else “in-the-know”. In the case of the North Pole, they can be answered …

When It is Not Christmas at the North Pole

It nearly hit 70 degrees here the other day. Almost had to take my sweater off. That’s sweltering for the North Pole. Such is summer here. Oh, I know what you’re saying. Some of you think it is Christmas here all the time. Many have visions of endless pails of eggnog, of trees lit up 24 hours a day and of stockings perpetually hung by the chimney with care. Yeah, …

Playing Head Games with Santa

Santa knows when you are sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. Pretty scary, huh? But what’s the big deal? A really good cat burglar can know the same thing about you. What’s worse is that he knows if you’ve been bad or good. Think about that: he knows. The very thought kind of gives me the creeps. And I’m an elf one who is considered a superior citizen if there …

Santa Everywhere

It is the question that just won’t go away: How does Santa get around the world in one night? I’ve never been one to understand how kids can ask this question. After all, Santa never fails to appear. I’ve lived through more Christmases than almost anyone and Santa has been there for every one of them. Every time. Without fail. He has never called in sick. He has never had …

Why the Big Guy is a Big Guy

We live in a politically correct world these days. That means we’re careful in how we say things. For whatever reason, Christmas is a target in the battles of political correctness. In some place, folks won’t say “Merry Christmas” — they’ll say “Happy Holidays” instead because they don’t want to be “offensive”. That’s silliness, of course. You know it, I know it and all the world knows it. But in …

A Fat Man’s Holiday

Someone around here keeps mentioning that Thanksgiving is Santa’s favorite holiday. We keep getting letters disputing that fact and arguing that nothing can supplant Christmas as the day for Santa — or anybody else at the North Pole for that matter. Some readers write the dumbest letters. A man from Toledo wrote to say that everyday is Christmas at the North Pole and that there are no other holidays observed …
