March is here, and there are a couple of things to celebrate—National Craft Month and the arrival of spring! To get the month off to a crafty start, Raymond the reindeer and his pal made their lion and lamb costumes with some help from the elves. We hope this month’s calendar cheers you up as much as it does us… We just love Raymond’s sheep outfit!

Well, folks, can you believe that there are only 37 days until Christmas? Despite how busy we elves are during the holiday season, we thought it was about time to start blogging more in order to inject some merriness into your days. We do hope you’ll stop by regularly between now and Christmas, as we’ll be highlighting charities, posting some of our holiday favourites from Etsy, and sharing other festive fun. Plus, you’ll get to see where in the world Raymond the reindeer visited this year!

If you’ve read the Elf Blog in years past, you might be wondering where the crafts went. Have no fear—they’re still here! The elves have created so many awesome craft projects that we decided the crafts deserved their own home at the North Pole. So, may I present to you… the Craft Cottage!

Craft Cottage

The Craft Cottage houses all kinds of crafty goodness—from ornaments to home decor to wreaths and more. So bust out the glitter and glue gun, and head on over to the Craft Cottage.

Northpole.com Crafts

Our regular readers might also be asking themselves what happened to the great gift ideas we previously highlighted on the Elf Blog. Again, we decided that all this fabulous content warranted its own space, so we packed up all the gift ideas and moved them to the Gift Shop!

Gift Shop

In the Gift Shop, you will find elf-curated presents for every type of person on your Christmas list. Whether you’re shopping for a chef, sports nut, or creative kid, we’ve got you covered.

Thanks for stopping by. We certainly look forward to spending the holiday season with you. Let us know in the comments what you’re most excited about this Christmas!

The Holiday Season is Upon Us!

Less than 2 months. 7 weeks. 51 days. However you want to phrase it, the fact remains that Christmas will be here 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 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 personalized stories and yummy recipes, we will be bringing you brand new, fun, festive content here on the Elf Blog every single day between now and Christmas.

If you love holiday crafts, are searching for gift ideas, 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!

Gooooood morning! Today is June 25th, and Christmas is 6 months away.  We can’t believe how fast the year is flying by, but we are eagerly anticipating Christmas. So eager, in fact, that we thought we’d throw a party to celebrate! July is only a few days away. What better way to have fun than with a Christmas in July party? Check back as the day goes on for craft ideas for your Christmas in July party.

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!! As you know, we’ve invited our friends on Google+ to the Northpole.com Official Countdown to Christmas 2012 where they can upload photos of how they’re celebrating Christmas and celebrate with the rest of the world. If you’re on Google+, we hope you’ll join us! (If you’re not on Google+ yet, you can sign up here.)

Here are some of our favourite photos from yesterday and today!

Sandra B. said, “My daughters with Santa :)
Carey O. said, “Waiting for the Guest of Honor, a.k.a.The Big Guy.”
Jimmy C. said, “My Norwegian friend loves her Raymond! Thanks Northpole.com!”
Sarah R. said, “We just moved to Alaska just 5 days ago and my son was dying for us to put up our tree (it was literally the only thing he talked about during our trip from California to Alaska) so we put it up and let both my son and daughter decorate the tree. As you can tell by all the ornaments placed only at the bottom of the tree :o ) We are very excited for Santa this year.”

Does your family have any Christmas Eve traditions? Let us know in the comments below!

Only 6 days until Christmas now!

I guess everyone was really busy today (finishing up their Christmas shopping, perhaps?) because we only had one photo submission on the Event page today—from me ;)

My favourite section of my tree: photo of my basset hound, a wee julbock, hearts from London and Sweden, a hippo, and Troy Polamalu!
