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.

Santa Speaks 2007
Just as he does every year, Santa has been interviewed in advance of Christmas. And just as he has done in the past, Santa has met with an aspiring journalist, this year being 17-year-old Jeremy Hart of Fontana, California. Jeremy did something no other journalist with an exclusive interview has ever done -- he opened up the questions to the world. For more than a month the public was invited to submit their questions for Santa to Jeremy. The result is this candid conversation where we learn more about the modern Santa Claus than ever before.
