All About Santa's Elves

Santa Claus is one of the most high profile dudes around - especially during the month of December. He makes rounds at the malls and has one night of glory (December 24th) that makes him a legend for children around the world. There are movies, stories, poems and songs written just for him. But what about all of his tiny little helpers? What does it take to become one of Santa's elves? Kidzworld has the inside scoop on these toy-making sidekicks.

Santa's Elves: What Does It Take to Become an Elf?

Other than the obvious requirement of having previous toy-making experience, there is a little physical test you must pass. All of the helpers at the North Pole must be under 4'9" (1.5 m) and be the proud owner of a pair of subtly pointed ears. Oh, and it's probably best that you look good in green.

Santa's Elves: The Good Stuff About Being an Elf

Being a member of the North Pole elite means you can walk home with all the leftover toys come December 25th, so it's important that all elves remain kids at heart - otherwise all those free toys would be more of a nuisance than a treat. And don't forget the great benefits and holiday packages an elf takes advantage of. After a couple years of glueing and painting in the assembly line, an elf receives a two-month break and is able to travel to wherever he/she wishes. They usually head somewhere warm and sunny, like Bermuda or Mexico.

Santa's Elves: The Bad Stuff About Being an Elf

On top of working their fingers to the bone during the Christmas rush, elves are required to wait on Santa and Mrs. Claus hand and foot. Elves also have to make the mall rounds with Santa, and are usually the ones who receive the brunt of screaming kids, stray kicks to the shins and sticky candy cane hands in their hair. And, the biggest downside of the elf gig has got to be the reindeer stable duty. Rudolph and the gang may be lovable, fuzzy reindeers, but who really wants to muck out their stalls?

Santa's Elves: How Much $$$ Do Elves Make?

The average elf makes enough cash to support him/herself up in the North Pole, but it's not enough money to retire on. Most elves are in their line of work for the love of Christmas and the kids that their toys bring joy to, not the moola. The lack of funds does get made up to them by the Claus' though, with a never-ending supply of cookies, milk, hot chocolate and other tasty holiday treats (that's kinda why most elves are a little round in the middle)!

I like being tall but the thing is ive also got a i need a boy taller than me or my own height thing because i just feel more safer or protected. I don't think its dumb its just the way people are. In order to judge people you need to know who they are, what their personality is and just how the way they are because some girls have a got a thing like that too just like me. I cant date a boy smaller than me unless we are perfect well even close to perfect so the thing is it is just how we are. Problem solved!!!

oh bruhh, do you not think anything bad is going to happen? i am in the top sets for everything in my school and the kids that are with me act like two years old. Bloody they kiss in front of everyone and do you know what else?? They pass notes to each other and like on Tuesday this girl got dumped and this is how the boy did it. They were passing notes to each other and then the boy write a note saying he dumped her and showed it to the whole class and the girl was in tears. She was crying and the boy was dancing saying i just dumped her in a sick way. Also if you and your bf/gf are walking in the park someone in the park and some lunatic attacks you haw are you supposed to defend yourself??? i think if you date at the age of eleven you are being immature and you are immature. You are not wise enough but if you dont agree fine by me im not anyone you know and im not your parent so yh if you agree then you agree and if you dont you dont!!!
