All About Santa Claus

Santa Claus is coming to a chimney near you on Christmas Eve and you won't get any presents from him if you've been naughty. Get the inside scoop on the jolliest holiday figure around!

Here Comes Santa Claus!

Santa lives at the North Pole with Mrs. Claus and all the elves. You'd think he would be cold there, but he wears a red suit and hat that keep him warm. In fact, this suit is so special that it never gets dirty, even when he comes down your chimney! With a big belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly, Santa knows he should go on a strict diet, but he can't resist the wonderfully sweet treats that the Mrs. bakes in her kitchen.

Ho-Ho-Ho!

So why does the guy in the red suit have the coolest job? Let's see - he and his elves build and play with... er "test" out the toys to make sure they're in top condition, his office is located in a winter wonderland, he flies around in a magic sleigh pulled by nine of the coolest reindeer around, and he's loved by everyone cuz he hands out presents left, right and center!

Ho-Ho-Hum...

The elves may do most of the grunt work when it comes to Christmas duty, but Santa's the one who has to decide which of you deserves a present. It'd be an easy job if there were only 50 kids on the planet, but it gets difficult to decide who's been naughty and who's been nice where there are zillions of kids! Plus, Santa has to sit at the mall for hours and deal with a ton of whiny kids who pull off his glasses and tug at his beard. But no matter how hard his job gets, he never loses his Christmas spirit.

How Much $$$ Does Santa Make?

Santa Claus doesn't get a paycheck cuz he's the one who hands out the cash to his hardworking elves. Whatever money is left over is put into a Christmas fund to make cooler toys for all of you, renovate the toy workshop and a build a sleeker sleigh.

Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.
