What Happens at the North Pole After Christmas
What happens at the North Pole after Christmas is not something that gets talked about much. There are no songs about it, no movies or television specials. Heck, people hardly ask about it. But I would tell you that the time right after Christmas is a very important time. In this episode of the North Pole Podcast elves Frank and Crash talk about what happens immediately after he and Santa return to the North Pole. It is an amazing time of reflection and it has a huge impact on the Christmas to come. This is an informative and fun episode to kick off the new year in following Santa.

Stories of Tracking Santa
In this special (if rushed) episode of the North Pole Podcast we hear from two superstar Santa Tracker Elves – Elf Lil Cream and Elf Crusader. They are just two of millions who have signed up at SantaTrackers.net to track Santa for Santa. The art of tracking Santa is not a new one. It has been going on for decades. It has changed a great deal over the years but one thing remains true: tracking Santa does NOT have to be a singular endeavor of just looking at Santa’s position on a map. No, Santa has found a way to make it better. He has found a way to make tracking Santa an act of service. Tracking Santa for Santa means becoming an elf and helping Santa to get around the world safely. How? By putting on your elf ears and eyes in your own neighborhood and reporting to the North Pole everything that you see — from the weather to the condition of chimneys. It is not difficult work but it is essential. And the more tracker elves out there Santa has the better it is. By extending yourself in this service you not only begin your elf career you HELP the world to have a Merry Christmas. Can it get any better than that? Yes, it can. What this podcast episode does is it tells the story of how elves track Santa but also how that whole effort began. Elf Crash Murphy talks of how he went from being an elf in the Wrapping Department to being the Most Famous Santa Tracker in all the World. It’s a great story.

Stuff You Don’t Know About Santa
Stuff you don’t know about Santa is the topic of conversation in this special episode of the North Pole Podcast. By request from several teachers and many parents we were asked to do a podcast episode about the more unknown things about Santa Claus. With so many missing school or under quarantine due to the Coronavirus people are spending more time than ever trying to learn new things about Santa, what he does and how he does it. This episode is a real surprise. Joining Elves Frank Myrrh and Crash Murphy of North Pole Radio News is Elf Dr. Grant Smedley, profession of Santa history at Southern North Pole University. Dr. Smedley is not only a Santa historian he is also Santa’s official biographer. It was thought that Dr. Smedley would be the one who shares a lot of new information in this episode. But instead he turns the table on Frank and Crash and we end up hearing two fantastic stories of the modern-day Santa that nobody has ever heard. From these stories we learn a great deal about Santa that we didn’t already know.

Things to Know About Reindeer
Reindeer are essential to Santa’s mission. Santa simply cannot be Santa without his reindeer. But what do you really know about them? The late arrival of Santa’s reindeer to the North Pole in 2020 has caused lots of mail to arrive at the North Pole with questions about Santa’s reindeer. People want to know more about them, what they like and don’t like, how they learn to fly and how many reindeer Santa actually has. Elf Crash Murphy has a special place in the work of Santa because, like Santa, he flies around the world every Christmas in a sleigh pulled by reindeer.

Tracking Santa App Update
The Tracking Santa App is coming! In this merry and brief episode of the North Pole Podcast Elf Frank Myrrh talks with Elf Winslow, who was put in charge of the app project last spring. Elf Winslow confirms that the app is coming this year. He spoke of the instruction Santa gave about the app and what he had heard of what people wanted in a tracking app. Key to the project is the Santa tracking map that people want on their phones. Winslow confirms this feature will be available — along with North Pole Radio via Kringle Radio that features North Pole Radio News. Tracking Santa on the map then will match tracking Santa on the radio and app users will have both in one convenient place. The app is in testing now and should be available for Android users soon.

North Pole Halloween
The North Pole Halloween party is one that we cover in the news every year. It’s a big deal. And we have been getting a lot of questions about it. So Frank and Crash decided to sit down in the studios of Kringle Radio to discuss where Halloween comes from and why we celebrate it here at the North Pole. As you will likely hear in our news coverage the modern day Halloween at the North Pole means a big costume contest for the elves and a massive Halloween party for everyone here at the North Pole. Most famously, this big party usually ends in a food fight. We never know for sure if that is going to happen. But it usually does. There will be some news that comes out later this week about the costume contest, including the plans for Santa and Mrs. Claus. They love Halloween especially because it gives them the opportunity to really surprise the elves. They usually do it with their costumes. But we understand why people have questions. It is easy to know where Christmas comes from but understanding where and why Halloween is from is something else altogether. In this episode Elf Crash answers this question.

Santa, the North Pole and the Virus
Greetings! The questions we are receiving about Santa, the North Pole and the virus are overwhelming the North Pole Post Office these days. Santa very much understands your concerns. After all, you are dealing with incredible disruptions to your family, home, school and work on account of the virus — so why wouldn’t it affect Santa and the North Pole, too? Santa has ask me today to give you a candid update about the situation and more specifically what the North Pole plans to do about it all. As we have previously reported the North Pole has not suffered as much from the virus as many other areas of the world. In February, the North Pole stopped all travel in and out of the North Pole Sleigh Port. Like nearly everywhere else, the North Pole then went into a mode of keeping people healthy, trying to educate them about sanitary practices such as washing hands more often, and monitoring elves very closely for any signs of sickness. To date there has not been a single case of the Coronavirus at the North Pole. Santa and Mrs. Claus likewise have so far been able to avoid the disease. As Christmas approaches the concerns remain: What if Santa travels the world and then catches the virus? What will happen if Santa has the virus when Christmas comes? Will Christmas then be canceled? What if the virus is present in a home at Christmastime – will Santa just skip that house? Will Santa wear a mask? These are all real questions that we have received, as well as thousands of others that are similar in nature. Santa wants you to know that Christmas will happen this year. Many plans have been put in place to ensure that Santa will be able to deliver, on time, as he does every year. We will work all season here at SantaUpdate.com to address these concerns. Additionally, we invite you to listen to a new episode of the North Pole Podcast about this particular issue. Santa does have plans. It is very clear he will not be able to visit in person with many people leading up to Christmas. This is for the safety of everyone involved.
