Elf Training #2 – Know Your Time

Greetings, Elves!

Time for Elf Training #2 — which is about time. I don’t mean its about time we talk about time. I mean, it’s about time.

A lot of new elves get confused about time. It is hard for them to understand that while it is daytime perhaps where they are that it is actually, at the same time, nighttime for someone somewhere else. The world is a big place and it gets confusion.

The best place to start to understand time and where you fit in with it all is to take a look at this sector map:

Sector Map

If you can understand where your sector is you can begin to understand time.

Let’s say, for example, you’re a tracker elf in New Zealand. That’s sector #1.

If you have a friend who is an elf working in sector #5 you know that they are in a completely different time than you are. Way different time. In fact, it may be September 22nd for you in New Zealand, but it’s still only September 21st for your friend in Sector #5.

Time is different for everyone.

That is why, when Santa flies, you can always hear what time HE is operating by through the Santa Updates, the news from North Pole Flight Command, and by listening to the radio news reports on Kringle Radio.

All of that stuff is available right here for you to follow.

What you need to concentrate on is knowing what sector it is you are in and keeping up with where Santa is. Oh, and doing as your supervisors instruct you and other elves in your sector at the time. All that stuff happens right here.

Hi! I just signed up for being a tracker elf and I have a question… Do I have to read all the lessons starting from lesson 1?


Yes plz

Elf Candy Gumdrops


Elf Jangle

yes , you do



Elf Buttercup

Yes. No rush at all though. Please take your time because you don’t have to read all the trainings in one single day. Make sure to take breaks too. 🙂

Elf Candy Gumdrops

what time zone is santa in?

Elf Jangle

good question

Elf Jangle

I just figured out that Santa is in kind of all of the sectors because the north pole kind of wraps around all of the sectors

EST AKA East Standard Time

Elf Amelia

does santa have the same time zone as us??

Elf Jangle

he has the same time zone as all of us because the north pole wraps around all sectors

Elf Jangle

so if its lets say december 21 in sector 1 and december 20 in sector 5 then what time is it in sector 2 3 and 4?

parker buzzby

yeh thanks

Elf Jangle

What would be a bedtime advisory for sector 5?


The time is 6

Teagan Lomas

Elf Buttercup

Great to know. But I have been wondering what time-zone travels to first. Like, EST, MST or any other.


Good question. I’m not sure..
