SantaUpdate has been providing news from the North Pole for 30 years. They were the first tracker of Santa online. But their news is not just of tracking Santa. They tell the story of Operation Merry Christmas, of life at the North Pole, what it is like to be an elf and to work for Santa. They talk to Mrs. Claus. They report on the reindeer. They publish podcasts and manage all of our social media channels. They do all this year round, 365 days of the year. Here is their latest news.
