Some of the questions I’ve gotten this year are below! They aren’t answered in Santa’s FAQ Page, so we’ll keep updating them here:

1. Madyson asked “Do you know [a specific person]?” Well, you know the song, “he knows if you’ve been bad or good…” That doesn’t just mean you, but it means you, your friends and their friends, and their friend’s friends and so on. So that is a lot of people, so the answer is yes, I do know them!

2. Andrea, who is 9, asked “How fast is your sleigh?” Well, Andrea, the sleigh can go really, really fast. It needs to go fast to get all the toys delivered for the kids each year! Sometimes we go slow in it, when we are coming in to land, sometimes we go fast! Faster than a jet airplane even! Santa’s Christmas magic helps us deliver presents all over!

3. We had a question about when some of the Reindeer’s birthdays are, and we have that information here.

4. Jordon asks, “will Santa still come if we have no Christmas tree, cookies or milk“? Yes Jordon, Santa will still come even if you don’t have a Christmas tree, cookies or milk! Just be good and considerate of your family and friends and Santa will come!

5. Austin asks, “how much do you weigh after all the snacks you eat around the world?” Fortunately delivering all those presents, climbing up and down chimneys, helping the reindeer and the like is a lot of work so it burns a lot of calories from all that food! Also, Santa’s Christmas magic helps keep him from gaining too much weight! We generally eat healthy food up here at the North Pole the rest of the year!

6. Samarah asks (as do many other people!) “How does Santa Claus get in my house because I do not have a chimney in my home and the door might be locked?” Santa Claus uses his Christmas magic to get into houses that don’t have chimneys. He can pop a quick chimney in the house, come down the chimney, deliver presents, go back out and, poof, the chimney is gone. If necessary, Santa has a special Christmas Key that can help him with locks. But that is usually not needed!

7. Caleb askes “Is my brother or sister on the naughty list?” While Santa and the Elves know who is on the naughty and nice list, we can’t tell the answer to you right now! Someone might get back on the nice list or get off the nice list! The BB&G list (Bad Boys and Girls list) changes based on how everyone is behaving and has behaved! This answer applies to all those types of questions about whether someone is on the naughty or nice list! Ho ho ho!

8. Samarah asks “how Santa Claus knows where I live and if I move how does Santa Claus know where we live?” Santa Claus has Christmas magic to help, plus he has a lot of helpers – Elves, Reindeer, Dogs and Cats etc – who help him keep track of things.

9. Lexi asks, “Hey Santa! I was wondering has anyone ever seen you put presents under the tree?” Well Lexi, it has happened a few times, not very often, but sometimes someone really needed to see Santa so the elves made sure they got to!

10. Cody asks, “what makes Rudolph’s nose shine red? Why can’t it be green?” Well Cody, you know how your blood is red? Reindeer have red blood just like we do! So the red blood makes his nose shine red. If you get your mom and dad to shine a flashlight through your hand, you’ll see your hand look a bit red! I suppose Rudolph could put a filter on his nose to change the color, but he hasn’t tried it yet! He might even be able to use some Christmas Magic to change it too!

11. Do you do test flights? Yes, sometimes we do test flights on the sleigh, plus the reindeer like flying and it is very fun!

12. How often do you check the lists? We check the naughty and nice lists at least twice, sometimes more. Usually the day before Halloween is the first Christmas check (although we do look at them throughout the year when parents ask!), and then again for sure on December 23rd. Although we do check in between fairly often.

13. Do you like beer? Well, beer and other alcoholic beverages are not good when you are flying, so we make sure not do drink and drive the sleigh! Beer and other alcoholic drinks are an acquired taste, and I tend to avoid them!

14. Do reindeer ever get replaced? The reindeer are protected by Christmas magic, so while we do have lots of reindeer who like to fly with the sleigh and can do so, we usually use the same team. Sometimes we have a special red-nosed reindeer to help out, other times when the weather cooperates, he stays home to help out there!

15. What if someone on the naughty and nice list wanted coal for a present, what would you do? That is a tricky question, but they would probably just get nothing from Santa!

Keep checking back, because we’ll try to add answers to more questions as the season progresses!

And for everyone writing in saying they love Santa, we’ll, I love you all too! Ho Ho ho! Let’s make this a fun time (and a great year for 2015) by being nice and helpful to your family and friends, extra nice to your parents and brothers and sisters!

Remember, if you want to send in your gift list, send it to the Santa’s email address on this page and I’ll write you back, or you can post it on this page – but you won’t get an email back on that page.

I’m sure we’ll have a new 2015 FAQ page because there certainly are some creative questions!

Santa

  • TheSantaClaus

    Hi Bob! We’ll make a note about Colby! Thanks for letting us know – I think the Elves had already known it, but it is always great when parents, grandparents, family and friends fill us in! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • Reginald Baldwin

    dear Santa my name is Reginald and I was wondering if you could still find me even though I don’t have a fireplace if so could you please bring me a big train set and lots and lots of cars thank you

    • TheSantaClaus

      Hi Reginald, I can find you and I don’t need a chimney to bring your presents. Christmas Magic helps me out! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    Sometimes they go around a small tree or they can go in stockings or lots of other places! After doing this for so long we are quite creative! Merry Christmas!

  • TheSantaClaus

    Why thank you! Ho! Ho! Ho! to you!

  • TheSantaClaus

    Christmas magic, sometimes your family helps, and I have good eyesight! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    I don’t mind a bit! I’m sure it will be beautiful no matter what the size! Some times people don’t even have a tree, or have one that is only 30 centimeters or 12 inches tall and we manage to deliver presents! The size of the tree doesn’t matter, it is the wonder and meaning of the Christmas season that is most important! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • tiffany

    hi santa wake me up when you come

    • TheSantaClaus

      Hi Tiffany, I can’t wake you up when I come by! You need your sleep for a busy, fun Christmas day 🙂 Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    Great! Can’t wait to see it! Merry Christmas!

  • TheSantaClaus

    I can be very, very quiet! Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas

  • TheSantaClaus

    Hi Tiffany! If your parents are okay with the stockings there, I’m okay with it! I love dogs! (And cats too! Animals are fun if you can take care of them!)

  • TheSantaClaus

    I try to pace myself so I don’t get sick. Moderation in the amount of milk, cookies, and other treats is very important! Merry Christmas!

  • TheSantaClaus

    I try to stay in shape all year by exercising and eating properly. I know that Christmas night I’ll get a lot of treats, plus have to do a lot of deliveries, so I plan. Plus I have the Elves and reindeer to help me!

  • TheSantaClaus

    I can probably figure out which one is the one to use when I see the situation! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    I can still fill it up! It just depends on how tightly they are holding it, if they are extremely tired (and so I wouldn’t want to take a chance on waking them) etc. So, it just depends on the circumstances! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    You have a lot of good questions! I’m sure there are a lot of other children out there wondering the same thing, so they’ll be able to read the answers!

  • TheSantaClaus

    Then it is really cool! Although I can often deliver presents without the tape catching me! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    If I could hear everyone, then people wouldn’t need to write a letter, email, text or leave a voicemail! It would be very distracting to hear everyone when they were talking about Christmas presents! (It would be a little creepy too!) That is a really great question though, I can only imagine lots of other people were wondering that!
    Ho! Ho! Ho! and Merry Christmas Lexi!

  • lexi

    how do cats help you keep track of things?

    • TheSantaClaus

      Cats, dogs, birds and fish are all friendly! Ho Ho Ho!

  • TheSantaClaus

    Hi! Finally getting back to answer questions on here after a wonderful Christmas delivery session and then some sleep and a feast! Anyway, to answer your question, with a name like “Saint Nicholas” (Santa Claus), do you think I would believe in God? Ho! Ho! Ho!

  • Anna

    How many elves help you?

    • TheSantaClaus

      Lots and lots. It varies by year how much help we need!

      • Anna

        How many toys did you make in 2014?

        • TheSantaClaus

          Billions of toys! There were more than 1,900,000,000 (that is 1.9 billion!) children in the world on Christmas 2014 and they all need a couple of presents!

  • Anna

    When do you have test flights?

    • TheSantaClaus

      There isn’t a test flight schedule, just whenever we need or want to have one! Ho! Ho! Ho!
