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 …

What is Mrs. Claus’ first name?

Dear Ernest, What is Mrs. Claus’ first name? Thanks, Bill Hi Bill, I’ll tell you, Bill I haven’t the foggiest idea. You see, Mr. and Mrs. Claus are very private people, despite their very public roles. I am in the delicate position of knowing many things and I have been charged with being a spokesperson for the North Pole. It’s a great responsibility. And some things, being private, I just …

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 …
