Buddy the Elf Tells All about Life in the North Pole

O Elf Christmastown Marcus (2) 001

Do your kids have lots of questions about Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves who help them? We found a talkative elf who is glad to share his opinions on lots of matters. He’s Buddy the Elf, who will be visiting Raleigh in Elf the Musical. Here is a Q & A with him:

What is it like living in the North Pole?
It’s cloudy and cold with a chance of good cheer!

Do you like working in Santa’s workshop? What is your favorite thing to do?
Working in Santa’s workshop is an honor for any elf. Although making cookies or shoes is right up there.

Is there really a naughty or nice list? How does Santa decide who is on each list?
GASP! We don’t talk about the naughty list!

What are the steps to decorating the perfect Christmas tree?
Hot Cocoa Chanel always said, “After you put all the decorations on, take one item off.” We say, “More is more.”

What snacks should I leave out for Santa? What snacks should I leave for the reindeer?
Cookies and carrots are customary, but all donations are accepted.

How does Santa get to all of the houses in the world in one night?
Eggnog and a prayer.

How will Santa find me if we are not home for Christmas?
What? Where you going?

What is your favorite Christmas song?
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Chri-“ Eek! Gotta go!!
