Name: DELORES BROWN

Location: HAGERSTOWN, MD

Guest: Santa

Question: WHO WON THE CHRISTMAS TREE COLORING CONTEST? THE DRAWINGS WERE HELD AT THE FESTIVAL OF THE TREES AT ROBINWOOD AND I HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING IN THE PAPER.

THANKS

Santa: I have been very busy and unable to check on the results. I will email you with the results as soon as I can!




Moderator: How old are you and do you ever get tired of doing this every year?

Santa: You are only as old as you feel, and no, I never get tired of fulfilling wishes for all my children.




Moderator: How did you meet Mrs. Santa? Is she an elf and do you have any children? If so, what are their names and do they help get ready for Christmas Eve?

Santa: At the North Pole we have snowman-making contests. Mrs. Claus entered the contest and when I tallied the results, she won hands-down. She was creative, caring, and very beautiful. I knew she was the right girl to help me prepare for Christmas and a wonderful mother to all my elves. We have no children of our own, but we have thousands of elves who live with us. Mrs. Claus is not an elf.




Moderator: What is your most-requested toy this year? Is it different for girls and boys?

Santa: My most requested toy for a girl is the Dora doll and my most requested toy for a boy is Star Wars Legos.




Moderator: If I don't get a toy that I asked for, does that mean I was bad, or that your elves couldn't make enough of them?

Santa: Absolutely not! If I run short of a toy requested, I ask the elves to work extra hours and sometimes they just run out of time.




Moderator: Can you really see children when they're awake and when they're sleeping to see if they are behaving? Do you have x-ray vision so you can see through the walls of houses?

Santa: Yes, I can see the children when they are awake and when they are sleeping. Believe it or not, when they are awake, they are usually behaving! No, I do not have x-ray vision, I just have the ability to see things others can't see.




Moderato: If a house doesn't have a chimney, how do you get in? If there is a fire burning in the fireplace, do you get real hot walking through the fire or is your suit fireproof?

Santa: If your house doesn't have a chimney, I ask your parents to leave a door open and I lock it when I leave. Oh, and about the fire, yes they are very, very hot and Mrs. Claus always warns me to be very careful and not burn my suit.




Name: Sean

Location: Hagerstown, MD

Guest: Santa

Question: Dear Santa,

Have I been good enough to get a Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl win for Christmas?

Santa: Good heavens. Don't you Bengals fans ever give up? If you think it will help, I will send a message to their coach.




Moderator: Do reindeer have to learn to fly like children learn to walk? Can they fly for just one night each year, or all year long?

Santa: When my reindeer get old enough to begin flying lessons, my older reindeer spend many hours training them. They spend many nights practicing and at the beginning of December, we choose the reindeer for our Christmas trip.




Moderator: What do you want for Christmas for yourself?
