Holiday Recipes

A warm and bubbly holiday treat from back in the day. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or just by itself.

A truly old fashioned flavored cake that is a moist, tender, spice cake with applesauce, nuts and raisins. Delicious!

An easy cherry pie recipe that is certain to put smiles on the faces of all the elves in your family - young or old.

These little cherry flavored gems are Rudolph's favorite. Any ideas as to why?

It's not the holidays without Danielle Elf's wonderful Cinnamon Pumpkin Bread. The reduced sugar and little extra kick of cinnamon is a Santa favorite.

Nothing short of heavenly. Quite sweet, but the extra tart of the cream cheese and cranberries gives just the perfect tart touch to leave you craving just one more.

This Crock Pot Candy just might be the ultimate holiday treat! Not only is it easy to make, it’s really delicious and a great treat to share for Christmas.

Here's a recipe from our very own Ali Elf. This is sure to please.

Try these cookies on the sweet-tooth in the family. Our Elves love 'em... yours will too!

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, And bring it right here.

There's nothing like a nice molasses cookie and a glass of milk during the holidays.

Another festive treat from Ali Elf! You've got to try it.

This classic homemade fresh pumpkin pie recipe has been a favorite at the North Pole. This is the pie Mrs. Claus serves at Thanksgiving and Christmas day feasts.

Here's a fun treat that all the Elves like to make for dessert.

The Season Begins!

Santa's Welcome to the North Pole Times

[The Season Begins!]

Editor's Note: The Editors of The North Pole Times recognize that there's a lot of interest in the goings-on at Santa's Workshop in the days leading up to Christmas Eve--or as we elves like to call it: The Big Night. So we are putting our daily newspaper on-line so that you can read about how things are going. And to start us off, Santa himself has agreed to write you a note to welcome you here!

Dear Girls and Boys:

Ho Ho Ho, and Happy Holidays!

I hope all of you in the south (and remember, when you live at The North Pole, everybody lives in the south!) are doing well, and I want to wish all of you in the United States a Happy Thanksgiving! We had a delicious Thanksgiving day dinner up here. Every year, Mrs, Claus and I make a special feast for all the elves, who all show up with dishes of their own to share. Jiller Elf brought banana nut bread, Freddie Elf brought sushi (which is raw fish and vegetables wrapped in seaweed and rice--and is very, very tasty!), and Gizmo Elf brought a fruit salad.

And Waldo Elf brought his 'specialty'--strawberry and mustard pudding.

Boys and girls, if you ever have to choose between eating sushi or eating strawberry and mustard pudding, choose the sushi.

Do you think it's strange that we at The North Pole celebrate an American holiday? Well, it isn't the only holiday we celebrate: We also celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving, which is held on the second Monday in October, and we celebrated the French Bastille Day in July--and we even celebrated Ferragosto with the Italians in August. We pretty much celebrate everyone's holidays everywhere--it keeps us in the holiday spirit all year round, ho ho ho!

And here's another reason for celebration: I got a Yeti Letter today! I'll bet you've never heard of a Yeti Letter, have you? Well, here at the North Pole, most of the mail we get are the Christmas Lists you Boys and Girls write us (have you written yours yet?). But sometimes, someone needs to get a very important letter to us, and to do that, they give their letter to a Yeti--also known as an Abominable Snowman! If you ever meet a Yeti, give him a letter addressed to me, and he'll bring it right to me.

This Yeti Letter was from the grand-daughter of Ha'penny Elf. Years and years ago, when your grandma's mother was a little girl, Ha'penny Elf fell in love with a human, and left The North Pole. Now, Ha'penny's granddaughter is all grown up, with a son of her own, and they're coming to visit us this week! I'm looking forward to meeting them, and you'll be able to read all about their visit, the next time you visit The North Pole TImes!

Ho Ho Ho!

Santa

Poor Waldo didn’t trip and fall, as many would expect. It was something else, something that crossed the line and made Waldo run into the wilderness.

There’s been quite a stir recently here at the North Pole. Our little friend ChrisMouse, who loves running behind the walls at Santa’s Village, has become a little bolder.
