As we enter this new month, we can’t help thinking about the lovey-dovey holiday many of you celebrate on February 14th. That’s right, we’re talking about Valentine’s Day! We elves get tickled pink at the sight of all the heart decorations on display all over the world—and at the North Pole. Raymond the reindeer is feeling especially affectionate this year and wanted to shower you all with love. So, consider this wallpaper a token of his affection that you can enjoy all month long!
As we’re sure you can understand, all of us elves were rather pooped after the holiday season. Now that we’ve had some rest and relaxation, we thought we’d share a 2016 calendar with you! In this wallpaper, Raymond the reindeer is accompanied by one of his little penguin pals who is visiting from the South Pole. We can’t handle the cuteness overload!
We hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! All of us up here at the North Pole had a lovely Christmas indeed.

As 2015 draws to a close, there are now 366 days until Christmas. [Don't forget that next year is a leap year!] We won’t be posting on the Elf Blog quite as often over the next several months, but come check back every now and then because we will be posting a few surprises between now and next holiday season

Happy December, everyone! We’ve been counting down the days until Christmas all year long, but now the big day is only 24 days away. Yippee! To celebrate our favorite month, here’s a heaping helping of holiday spirit—a cozy desktop calendar featuring Raymond the reindeer.
A little over a month. Less than 5 weeks. 32 days. However you want to phrase it, the fact remains that it will be Christmas before we know it!
This is an especially busy time here at northpole.com, just as I’m sure it’s a busy time for you. I do hope that you and your family will come visit us here regularly during the holiday season. Besides all of the great stuff elsewhere on the site [such as the fabulous crafts, yummy recipes, and letters to Santa], we will be bringing you fun, festive content here on the Elf Blog every single day between now and Christmas.
If you love holiday events, are wondering where Raymond the reindeer travelled to this year, or simply need a daily dose of Christmas joy, the Elf Blog has you covered. We look forward to spending the holiday season with you and yours!
Less than two months until Christmas is here! For many of you, the weather is steadily getting colder as the warm autumn colors make way for the evergreens to take center stage. Those colossal conifers have already dropped lots of pinecones, and Raymond the reindeer is eager to gather some. What do you think he’ll use the pinecones for: to make a fun craft or perhaps decorate the Reindeer Barn?
We’re sure that many of you are excited about one spooky holiday coming up on October 31st—Halloween! Get your costume ready so you can go door-knocking for some sweet treats on All Hallows’ Eve. Our own little reindeer, Raymond, is eager to join the fun. Here he is, dressed as a ghost and ready to go trick-or-treating!
As the leaves begin to change colors and fall to the ground, the shift in seasons reminds us that there is just one more season until the Christmas season! September is a special month as holds a few key dates: The 16th marks 100 days until Christmas, and the 23rd is the autumnal equinox. Not only that, but September is also the start of the apple harvest. Raymond the reindeer has rounded up lots of apples already and made this fall wallpaper for you! Download it now to your desktop computer, laptop or tablet.
While August is the last full month of summer, that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of fun things to do. You can nosh on some s’mores, ride bikes in the sunshine, or take your dog (or reindeer!) on a hike. During his off-season travels, Raymond the reindeer enjoys an occasional walk through the woodlands. Here’s a pretty snapshot from Raymond’s recent hike for you to download to your desktop, laptop, or tablet!
