Santa Claus is beloved by millions of people around the world. In almost every land, his legend is spread
through local traditions of warm, selfless giving and the sharing of holiday merriment. He is magic. Even kids who
have grown a little long in the tooth sense the wonder of Santa and remain curious of exactly who he is, where he
lives and how he remains so cherished with each passing season. My Merry Christmas is pleased to bring you the Internet's largest collection of original North Pole features with all the
answers to your deepest questions -- direct from the North Pole!

Ask Elf Ernest
He is Santa's Vice President of Public Relations and an expert on all things Christmas. And, yes -- he is an elf. For
more than a dozen years now, Elf Ernest has fielded questions from believers all over the world and has provided
clear, concise answers about some of the most perplexing mysteries of Santa Claus. Elf Ernest also publishes the
world-famous Update from the North Pole each day from Thanksgiving through Christmas every holiday season.
Every year we publish Santa's Annual Interview with the media. Santa talks about people who oppose him, why he
won't get a new suit, the proper way to send letters to Santa, how he has managed to stay with Mrs. Claus for all
these years and the top speed he's ever acheived on the sleigh. Santa is also a wry observer of popular culture
and isn't shy when it comes to opinions about Christmas, the blatant overuse of his likeness and the excesses
of the season. Kids love him -- and adults are surprised that Santa is such a candid character about Christmas
in today's world.
North Pole Top Ten Lists
We're always making lists here at the North Pole.
Elf Ed Zachary
He is not your every day elf. He is a little cantankerous, a little edgy and sometimes a bit, well, impatient. He is
also absolutely brilliant. When the more dubious kids out there ask the really tough questions, nobody can explain
the mysteries of Santa Claus better than Elf Ed. As Ed likes to say, when you want it Ed Zachary right, he's
your guy. But we must warn you. Elf Ed doesn't pull any punches. We wouldn't recommend getting smart with him. He's
very old. And he doesn't like people who think they are smarter than he is. Elf Ed writes regular columns for the
North Pole Gazette. We reprint a few classics here every year.
Believe it or not, there are still people in the world who just don't believe in Santa Claus. For you skeptics, here
are actual stories of real, close encounters with Santa Claus. We have asked everyone from NASA to the FBI to
validate these claims from our readers. But almost all of them have said you'd never believe it unless you saw it
for yourself. We report, you decide.
The Science of Santa
Ok, you asked for it and we're not kidding around. This new section of the North Pole on My Merry Christmas
addresses the controversial question of Santa's existence head on. Not for the faint of heart.
