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.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
