Santa receives so many wonderful letters that he sometimes doesn't have time to respond to them all. But that's why we decided to have this chat all night so he and I can communicate with all the children of the world!
Hi Luke! The reindeer can fly so fast because they studied very hard in reindeer school. Have you been keeping up with your studies, too?
After a quick stop in Luxembourg, Santa is quickly circling back to France to Dijon. Arrival time in about a minute. It is staying pretty clear so the reindeer are putting the hammer down to make up for any lost time from the rainy weather we have run into!
Hi Alyson! I know that you've been a very good year and that's why I'll definitely be stopping by later tonight. And I never get tired of delivering all my presents because I know how much good girls like you appreciate them! And thanks for the snacks :)
Hi Like! It'll be a little while still before I can make it Calgary but I promise that I'll get there tonight!
Looping back to Milan, Italy in about one minute!
Hi Luke! You know-- it's been so long that I've forgotten! Guess that means I'm pretty old, eh?
Hi, Anna. Wherever your father is, he loves you very much and is always thinking of you. And I'm certain that all he wants for Christmas is to be home with you, too. I'll make sure the reindeer and I spend a little extra time at your house tonight :)
Countdown is on! 2 minutes until: Limoges, France
How do you say Merry Christmas in French? “Joyeux Noël”!
Hi Nicholas! As fast as I try to be, sometimes you kids are just faster! If you do see me, I'll probably ask for some directions-- it's not east navigating all over the world!
Heading due south to Barcelona, Spain! Handheld thermometer says 11C/52F!
If you’re visiting France during Christmas, the place you want to be is in the city of Strasbourg, home ot the oldest Christmas market in Europe. The city has been celebrating the occasion since 1570, when beautiful decorations and treats are sold around its cathedral. It’s a lovely, colorful occasion that’s been replicated in places as far away as Tokyo.
Hi Kayla! Rudolph and I might be a little while longer before we can make it to Weston but I promise we'll get there. There's one catch, though-- you have to be asleep! Sweet dreams, Kayla!
You know what, Alyson? If Santa can fit into his pants each year, I'm sure he can shimmy and squeeze enough to make it down even your skinny chimney! Santa can try to leave a note but he has lots of little girls and boys to visit :)
Ouch, I remember you! But I'm prepared this year and am certain I'm nimble enough to make it to your tree with my bag of presents!
Sunny here! We are still heading due south, sneaking back down to North Africa. Will be in Tunis, Tunisia in less than 2 minutes!!!
Puppet shows and carols are popular in France, take a listen to a famous song called “Minuit chrétiens:
Thanks for the update, Sunny! You know I can sometimes worry about Santa...
Hi Nicholas! Santa will be a little while still before he can make it to Calgary-- but he'll only stop by your house if you're asleep ;)
I understand Mrs. Claus! Don't worry! The reindeer, Correspondence and I are keeping him awake by providing him tons of coffee and we are telling him corny jokes and that is keeping him laughing! He does miss you though and can't wait to see you!
Santa does like to hear that all boys and girls are doing well in school!
Hi, Reana! Coal is definitely a last resort-- I much prefer to give toys to everyone!
Hey Kids - Looks like Santa is going to continue making his rounds over West Africa. I just pulled up the radar and satellite on my Elf Phone and we may have some bumpy weather. I'll keep you posted! We have just left Diré, Mali and headed for Kiffa, Mauritania!
I'm almost positive both Brenna and Kayleigh made it onto my nice list this year. Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Christmas Eve together!
Wow-- Santa's delivered over 3.8 billion presents so far! Guess all that time in the workshop paid off!
The reindeer as almost as old as me-- which is very old!
The bag is veeeeeery heavy but Santa's been going to the gym so I'm sure he can handle the load!
