Gearing Up for Operation Merry Christmas

Operation Merry Christmas is just days away now and you can feel the excitement at the North Pole.

For those of you new to this please allow me to explain. It is such a tradition here at the North Pole that we forget that many people around the world do not really know what Operation Merry Christmas is.

Every year in January Santa meets with important elves in every department. They set goals. Then those departments work all year long to meet those goals. Those goals have to be met by Thanksgiving Day.


Because the day after Thanksgiving is when Operation Merry Christmas begins. Operation Merry Christmas is the delivery phase of Santa’s mission. All of us at the North Pole play some sort of part in that phase.

For me and my department, our part is sharing the news. We produce all the official websites of the North Pole. We also run the official radio station of the North Pole known as Kringle Radio. That is the home to North Pole Radio News. In fact, you can click on the player at the top of this report to hear them talking about Operation Merry Christmas on Kringle Radio or you can just tune into Kringle Radio itself at this page.

Everything it takes between now and Christmas to keep you informed of what Santa is doing and how Operation Merry Christmas is going is just our little part of Operation Merry Christmas.

Over at Santa’s Workshop, they have a part too. At this time of year they change from mass production to custom production. They get special orders from a team working the Wish List Department at the North Pole Post Office. When you send in a wish list via the North Pole Post Office, Santa reads it, gives orders and that goes to the workshop where things happen. When they are complete they send it to the Wrapping Department.

All of these departs have special things to accomplish before Santa launches late on December 23rd.

Putting it all together is what Operation Merry Christmas is.

    Thank you, Elf Ernest. I’m surprised again that Santa and important elves set goals every January! I remember a lot of the elves at the North Pole worked hard all year long for Santa. Thank you, Elves Frank and Crash for telling us about Operation Merry Christmas. Yes, it’s not only 20 minutes to prepare for Santa! I’m a younger elf, but I’m delighted to work Operation Merry Christmas for Santa with the elves too. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving! I’m looking forward to hearing the update! ^^

    This is all very interesting, especially that piece about the Workshop! I never knew that there was a mass production shift to custom production, but that makes a lot of sense. How do Workshop elves know what to make during the rest of the year, when they are still in mass production mode?
