Every year, I reach way back in my archives and pull out this post I did in December 2012. That was right after I started blogging! I can’t believe I have been posting for that long! So, read on and enjoy!
Hey folks! Coming to you live from the North Pole where I caught up with the Jolly Elf himself. He managed to answer a few questions between supervising the elves and visiting eBay. Read on for the answers to the questions you were dying to know the answers to…
Me: Santa, come on, spill the beans. How do you get to all the houses on Christmas eve?
Santa: It’s magic. I have several helpers strategically placed around the world that lend me a hand and work for peanuts…uh, Christmas cookies.
Me: Do you have a favorite cookie or snack on Christmas eve?
Santa: Ho, ho, ho. Why yes I do! I love homemade chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and snickerdoodles. Don’t leave me any healthy stuff like carrots. I need the sugar to stay awake all night.
Me: Do you really have a list and check it twice? Do you know who has been naughty or nice?
Santa: Well, in this day and age, its on my Smartphone. But, the principle is the same. I have my lists. Parents send me emails and I have my Elves keeping an eye on things in children’s houses. Let’s see… Julia, Julia… which list are you on?
Me: Uhhhh. Moving on.
Me: Does Rudolph really have a red shiny nose?
Santa: Well, funny thing. Rudolph has a brown nose like all the other reindeers. For some reason, he likes to wear a light-up clown nose on Christmas eve. So, that’s where the legend came from. Rudolph prances to the beat of a different drum.
Me: Does the elves really make all the toys for the good boys and girls?
Santa: Who are you kidding? We shop at Wal-mart. They have layaway. And, eBay. I love me some eBay.
Me: Where do you go after Christmas eve?
Santa: I swing by the North Pole, pick up the old lady and we head south to where the beaches are white and the weather is hot. I spend my free time making leis for the tourists.
Santa: Well, I have to run… I have a meeting with my agent. Wait, here you are…. why are you on the naughty list…?
Me: Well, there you have it folks… an up close and personal interview with Santa. Tune in next time when I come to you live from Hansel and Gretel’s House! Until next time.
