Secrets shared about your Letters to Santa….

Pumpaa and sprout grab.tiff

The first real wave of Santa letters are being received this week so I am so excited I could burst my Elf pants!!

Of course we have been receiving some letters for months from some super duper keen Elflet children and now the main lot have started rushing through.

So in case you are still chewing on your pencil and wondering what to write I thought I’d let you in on a few secrets of how the whole letter thing works…and also what we Elves like in a letter, not to mention Santa himself!!

So first of all, how do your letters get to us? Well do you know you can post them in the post box, leave them on your mantel piece or post them in one of the special Santa letter boxes that are in many places; rest assured the Elves receive your letters and read every one!

This is because there is a special wind that floats all around us, all over the world. You can’t see it; it’s magic and it’s the same magic wind that allows Santa to know things about you that you might not have told him. Just like you cannot see oxygen, but you know it is there because it means you can breathe, this magic Northern wind is all around us, all year round. And it also recognises any letter addressed to Santa Claus and brings it to us at the North Pole. So it doesn’t matter where you leave your letter, you can leave it indoors, outdoors or even pop it in the postbox, as long as it is addressed to Santa it will find its way to us at the North Pole.

So more importantly what do we Elves like in a letter? Well there are three things that we really love –

1/ Good manners – Santa loves it when children ask how he is, thank him for his time and use your best manners – he is very traditional and believes that good manners are very important, so the more polite you are to him (remember your please’s and thank you’s!) the happier he is!

2/ Gratitude – being grateful for last year’s gifts and for all the good things that have happened this year. We Elves work very, very hard and to have our hard work acknowledge by you children makes us jump for joy and feel full of goodness!!

3/ Colour, pictures, care and attention with your letters- Christmas is about cheerful colour so we love to see lots of colourful pictures in your letters and all the hard word you have given to creating a beautiful letter for us. It makes us soooooooo happy!!! So get creative, draw us some pictures and get your coloured pens out (Sprout especially is a sucker for sparkles!!)

 

 

So if you haven’t written your letter to Santa, get cracking. And my final tip to you festive Elflets is that it is best to limit your letter to a few things that you really want. As Santa usually gives a few extra bonus bits too that he thinks you will like too. So just let him know what you really, really would like above all things.

Looking forward to receiving your fabulous letters. And if you want you can even bring them along to The Elf Adventure Challenge and post them in our special postbox. Our Elf challenge masters love to see your letters as they are not working in the North Pole this year. So bring them along, show them and post them in our post box for Santa!

See you soon Elflets…

Team building with Santa…..

We’ve had a very exciting time this week at The North Pole because Santa himself led his annual team building session with all the Elves! Aside from the month of Seasons Greetings in December, Santa’s team building session is one of our Elves favourite things to do in the year!

Because all Elves have to do their Elf Adventure Challenge test before they can go from Elflets to fully fledged Elves, these team building sessions remind them of their Adventure Challenge activities which are always such fun, for Elflets and Elves of all ages!!

The activities that Elflets do in their Elf Adventure Challenge training are created and developed by Santa himself!

Santa loves team building with the Elves as working together as a happy, helpful and considerate team is essential to living and working in The Elf Village!

We do reindeer races, snowball relays, snowman building, cookie decorating and at the end of the day we have our favourite hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies!

You can read more about the Elflets and how they take their own Elf Adventure Challenge in order to become fully fledged Elves in my new book about Sprout Elf’s Adventure Challenge.

It will be available to buy next month so look out for it! And if you want to come along and join in the Challenges for yourself come to The Elf Adventure Challenge with your family this Christmas. If you complete the challenges and earn yourself title of honorary Elf then Santa may even call on you for help in the future…….

Yeeehah Elfets – I’m jumping for joy to be back at The Ice Cream Farm (as you know Elves do so LOVE ice Cream and Cheshire Ice Cream Farm have my favourite flavour;  chocolate ripple cookie dough!)

And the other exciting news is that I have a newly qualified Elf trainer, Sprout Elf who has helped me to bring the Elf Adventure Challenge Christmas fun and games to you all this year.

And we have a whole team of other amazing Elves working with us this year too to enable us to provide family Christmas fun for you in some different locations, making it easier for you to come and take part in your own Elf Adventure Challenge, become qualified as an honorary Elf and learn about what it means to be a real Christmas Elf!

To see the story of how Sprout the Elf came to join me on the Elf Adventure Challenge and went from Elfet to fully fledged Elf, with a few lessons on Christmas spirit along the way, see my Christmas storybook. I am very excited to be able to give all the children who come to the Elf Adventure Challenge a copy of my special Christmas storybook so they can carry on their Elf fun at home!

My book will be available for those who cannot visit the Elf Adventure Challenge, so feel free to share it with anyone who you think would love a new Christmas story to read with their children this year!

And so remember to sign up for updates, like our social media pages and check back in and you will find out more about the book as it is released. I’ll also be giving you some insights into life as an Elf at The North Pole during the next few months leading up to Christmas. Ooh I love this time of year; the anticipation, the excitement and the joy. Come and share it with us…….
