Santa Speaks 2016

Once a year — and only once a year — Santa sits down for an interview with the media. Under normal circumstances Santa will select a member of the media who usually does not get big story opportunities. But this year he took that a step further and is being interviewed by one of his own, an elf. And that elf is Crash Murphy, Kringle Radio’s own eye-in-the-sky reporter who …

Does Santa receive any presents?

Dear Ernest, Does Santa receive any presents? Karlee Bellingham, USA Yes, every year. Santa is a big believer in Santa. He hangs his stocking every year. I know this sounds goofy. What is even goofier is that Santa is always surprised by what he gets for Christmas every year. Last year he received some new golf balls and he was like, well, a little boy on Christmas. He just couldn’t …

Do reindeer actually talk?

Dear Elf Ernest (on behalf of Elf Victor, Santa’s head of reindeer operations), Do reindeer actually talk? Ria Kildare, Ireland Outstanding question! Reindeer are very, very intelligent animals. And they love working for Santa and powering the sleigh. But do they talk? Yes and no. They do not talk like you and I talk. They cannot use regular words. But they can communicate and it takes someone with very special …

Did Santa get my letter and when will he write back?

Dear Ernest, Did Santa get my letter and when will he write me back? Alexis Morgantown, USA If Santa writes you a letter it will probably only happen on Christmas morning when he is at your house. And if he does, it will be a very, very brief letter — more like a note. While Santa gets a lot of letters he does not actually write a lot of letters. …

What do elves like to eat at Christmas?

Dear Elf Ernest (on behalf of Elf Hugo, Postmaster at the North Pole Post Office) What do elves like to eat at Christmas time? Cherries Class Blandford Forum, England Thanks for all your questions. We have answered many of the other questions before but this question about elves and what they eat at the North Pole at Christmas is a very good question. Elves work hard. Very hard. So we …

Do planes follow Santa?

Dear Ernest, Do planes filled with the secret elf service follow Santa’s sleigh to ensure a safe flight? Matthew Deltona, Florida USA Not quite. Santa doesn’t like to use planes, although he is a licensed pilot. He tries to stay away from too many planes or helicopters especially on Christmas Eve. Frankly, they go just too slow for Santa. But he loves sleighs. They have few moving parts to break …
