Merry Christmas

The elves are the children of Gryla and Leppaludi, their father and mother. Some people say that there are 13 elves, some say 9 elves, some say 6 elves. They are very clever and help Santa to design the toys that children and grownups order by email or snailmail. We know at least 6 of the duties they have. Here it is with their names:

Alabaster Snowball is very important. He is the Administrator of the Naughty & Nice list.

Pepper Minstix is the guardian of the secret of the location of Santa's village.

Sugarplum Mary is Head of the Sweat Treats, and assistant to Santa's wife, Mrs Claus, also known as Mary Xmas.

Shinny Upatree is Santa oldest friend and cofounder of the secret village in Lapland.

Wunorse Openslae and Rudolph Wunorse Openslae designed Santa's sleigh and maintains it for top performance. (It is believed that the reindeer reach speeds faster than Christmas tree lights.) He also cares for the reindeer when they get back from going around the world.

Bushy Evergreen Bushy Evergreen is the inventor of the magic toymaking machine. He can make anything you want.
To tell Bushy Evergreen what he must make you for Christmas, you must first tell your mom or dad to help you write a letter to Santa so that Santa can tell Bushy Evergreen to make it for you.

Send the letter to Santa's post office in North Pole:

Santa Claus
North Pole

You can also email Santa.

On the 6 January the elves light up their torches and come down from their secret village in the mountain to play in a secret field to celebrate the last day of Xmas.
