The Cold Clause – Is Santa sick?

Is Santa sick
Is Santa sick

Many children ask, “Is Santa sick”?  Here’s my answer.

Now that it is so close to Christmas, I want to be sure that I do not get sick!  A few elves have caught the cold, so I have to be extra careful!

Would you like to find out if I am going to be healthy for Christmas?

Do not worry.  I am sure I am going to be healthy for Christmas!  I have some tricks up my sleeve.

Of course, the first thing I did was get my flu shot!

Another trick is that I make sure to wash my hands… often!

Today I worked in the shop with three elves that had the sniffles!  We even worked on the same chess set.

When it was time for a lunch break, I washed my hands with nice hot water.  I sang “Jingle Bells” as I scrubbed.  This helped me to make sure I scrubbed my hands long enough.

I also make sure I drink my orange juice.  Orange juice is full of something called Vitamin C.  Do you know what Vitamin C is?  Well, it is something that helps your body stay healthy.

If I do get sick, I use these same tricks.  I also try to go to bed early so that I can get lots of sleep.

If I get sick, chicken noodle soup and hot tea also help me to feel better.

Is Santa sick?

I guess if I do get sick I could always let Clumsy the Elf drive the sleigh this year.  I know he has wanted to try it for some time now.  He calls it “the Cold Clause”.  HHHOL!  (That means “Ho!  Ho!  Ho!  Out Loud!”)

But I don’t think I will be sick this year.  Besides, I go to see the Elf Doctor in just a few days!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.P.S.  My name really is Santa Claus, not Santa Clause!  That was just a silly joke in a movie!  HHHOL!

  5. I try not to get sick by drinking lots of tea and vitamin C.I also take little chuable vitamins.And when I go out in winter I always put on my scarf that santa gave me one year and I put on my hat my vest a jumper and my warm winter coat,I also put on my boots and my gloves.But not just at winter time, I always put on the right clothes so I won’t get sick.I also try to be happy all the time because happiness helps you not to get sick.And if I do get sick happiness also helps to make me feel better.That is how I try not to get sick.

  6. When I get sick I sometimes stay home from school. I lay in my mom’s big bed and watch TV. But this year I am trying to not miss a day of school starting at 3rd grade. So if I get sick I will go to school for a little bit and then go home. My mom will have to send a note or email in first so my teacher knows.

  7. Dear Santa,
    I hope you do not get sick because,what if Clumsy the elve gets lost and forgets a bounch ok kids!I hope the elves fell better soon!

  8. I think if you get sick you should let Mrs. Claus do the run for you. But make shore you teach her first. Thank you and have a Merry Christmas Santa.

  9. his name is clumsy and i bet he is going to be clumsy do not let him do it if he can not do it let Mrs.Clause do it. merry christmas

  10. Dear Santa,Hi!Don’t get sick because you can’t deliver presents and also,I drink medicine and not go outside when I’m sick.I love you!Looking forward to see you!Bye!<3

  11. hello santa i am a hamster and my owners are always getting colds but i dont get them because i hide away and cover my mouth and nose when they sneeze or cough thats all my tips for today i hope to give you more advice merry xmas and i hope to see xmas eve night not long now and i hope you stay well

  12. Santa clause my name is Mayson and i don’t want you to get sick because then you can’t deliver presents to the boys and girls stay healthy santa clause

  13. dear santa I am afraid that clumsy wont know where to go so PLEASE dont get sick and by the way if you get sick make sure you rest and drink lots of water

  14. I think it would be sad if you don’t ride the sleigh but I still wan you too but if he needs too, than its fine I guess.

  15. Santa, We appreciate Clumsy’s willingness to be your replacement if you are sick, but we would prefer that you stay healthy and drive yourself to our house. We are not sure Clumsy is as qualified as he thinks he is. IT has taken you many years of practice to get the trip just right. If Clumsy does drive please take a picture.

  16. hi i am cliodhna i am age 10 years old and i have the flu and i was being sick last night on the 20/12/2011 and i live in ireland .it is 3 day to christmas eve here and i can wate to christmas day.i hope you santa clause donot get the flu and be sick and elfs to oh and miss clause and reindeers so i hope you have a merry christmas bye.

  17. Santa please dont get sick all the children are depending on you and if you do get sick maybe give clumsy a go maybe just for a ride around the workshop and see how he goes dont just let hime ride the sleigh around the world for the first time you will all crash and that will not be good
    Keep washing your hands and drinking that orange juice maybe you will be skinner this christmas im just kiddingyou look good just the way you are.

  18. You should keep fit and active. Also keep yourself nice and warm on cold days. If I were you I would not want Clumsy to drive the sleigh he might accidentally crash the sleigh and he won’t be able to deliver the presents without a sleigh.

  19. I don’t think that you should let him drive because what my dad always says when I want to drive, ” if you drive, we all would be hanging from the crotch of a tree somewhere.” So if you are smart like my dad, don’t let him drive (no affence clumsy)!

  20. Santa Claus, please do not let Clumsy drive the sleigh, because then he will crash it, and no one will want that! I suggest you keep healthy with your clever tricks. Merry Christmas, and I will see you in 4 days!


  22. If u don’t want to get sick eat some chicken noodle soup.because when I was feeling down my grandma Rose Winters gave me some soup and then I felt better

  23. i say dont because it has the name clumsy in its not fair to the other elves. and if clumsy did wont he get tired at one point. you have to right santa? …. well love you santa!!!!

  24. When i get sick i usally sit down and watch t.v and have chicken nooled soup:)

    and when i get sick i usally get really tired so mostly i just sleep alday then the next day i actullay feel a little bit better and i can do little bit more like walk around and stuff

    and if you do get sick i think you should let clumsy do sleigh but then at the back of my brain i am kinda wondering because his name is clumsy 🙂

  25. Hi Santa it’s me again. If you are sick when you get to my house I could drive the sleigh but could you have mabey….. an Elf that knows how to drive th sleigh to help me,….if you will get sick.

  26. I don’t think Clumsy the Elf should drive.Mabay Mrs.Claus should if you get sick Santa.OR……. Any other Elf can.Now I’m NOT saying that I don’t like Clumsy the Elf I do like him,…even though I NEVER met Clumsy the Elf,but thats just my OPINION.

  27. Well first of all, my mom goes to the store to get this type of milk and helps me and puts a cold cloth on my forehead and that brings me backup on my feet in no time!!!

    P.S. and it makes me feel a lot better!!!!

  28. hhhol is so so so so so so so so so so so funny oh and i suggest you don’t let clumsy the elf drive the sleigh if you get sick, you should get Mrs. Claus to do it!!!…..:):)

  32. once i have bin sick but it wasd last year i was not sick this year well just this year i was not sick and i am okay now i will not have to say that because i was not sick.

  33. i think that santa is healthy and if you do get sick you should stay in the warm and mrs clause will look after you. im not really sure if you should let clumsy the elf drive the slegh on his own he needs to have someone to keep an eye on him

  34. i know i have been naughty to my brothers and my dad sometimes both of my parents but i been really trying hard to be EXTREMELLY nice from this day forward and it loooks like i have not been naughty after all and MERRY CHRISTMAS to all thats at the north pole

  35. Don’t let him do the whole thing if you get sick, but you can let him do little on some test runs. It would be fine for him to fly a bit on a test run.

  36. hi santa it robbie! please can i have a tin of chocolate biscuits,i promise not to be naughty have any tantrums and i will keep my room tidy. thank you:)

  37. Dear dear Santa,

  38. Hey Santa, if your sick than don’t let clumsy drive the sleigh! But its unfair to keep clumsy from wanting to drive the sleigh so if your not sick let clumsy have a little turn at drving it 🙂 But don’t let him drive it the whole way around the world or he will probably crash the sleigh with all the hard work the eleves maden will go to waste! Good luck santa and get well soon if your sick! Love you xoxoxo

  48. I don’t think you should let Clumsy drive. It even says it in the name! Clumsy. Something could go wrong. He could crash or fall out of the sleigh!

  49. hey santa, have you ever met an elf named buddy
    btw i think that clumsey should 1.not drive your your sleigh
    and also what i do if i get sick or get a pain is take powdered asprin aka BP and add it to my water and i ALWAYS take vitamins O_O

  50. If you get a cold or get sick I think you should not let the Clumsy drive your sleigh unless someone else is with him. At least one of the elves or Mrs.Claus should be with him.

    Jessica 🙂

  51. Hi Santa! When I’m sick, I go to bed an hour early. I take medicine and have chicken soup for all my meals. Also, if clumsy the elf isn’t realy Clumsy, then I think it’s fine that he deliver’s presents! Just so he doesn’t get confused, write the name of the person on the present! Then he can just look and see who’s it is! Merry Christmas!

  52. i dont think clumsy should do it because 1. he is 2 clumsy 2.all of us depend on santa 2 bring us our presents! wont get sick i know you wont because you’re santa you cant get sick and u wont get sick

  53. Do you have an Elf named Bernard? The reason why I am asking is beacause my Mom said Bernard made my dangly earings and he made my Areal jewlrey box.
    I think he should drive the sliegh on Christmas Eve.

  54. I hope you stay well Santa because I don’t want clumsy to crash into my christmas tree. And I don’t want him to tickle my feet at night because I’ll get a jelly fright.

  55. Santa i think clumsey the elf should drive your sleigh and tell him to do what you would do so he can do some work ……

  56. I would avoid the person that has the sickness politely. Don’t let Clumsy drive the sleigh if you’re sick. He’s clumsy

  57. To stop my self from getting a cold i have lots of fruit and fruit juice.I also have some handwash that stops germs making you ill.
    I think your elf could ride your sleigh but i would prefer it if you and Rudolf did x

  58. Hey Santa i say Don’t let CLUMSY drive the sleigh besides he’s clumsy and i dont want him to give me wrong present but maybe he can help you call out the places like map:)

  59. if i was santa clause and i was sick,i would let mrs clause ride the sleigh because i am sure that she has seen santa ride the sleigh.i wouldnt let clumsy the elf (sorry) drive the sleigh because he`s CLUMSY. And all of the elves are too small.Well.MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Xxxxxxx 🙂 🙂

  60. When i have a cold i lie in bed and my mom brings my hot tea and hot tomato soup(which i do not care because i love it:))
    and iget a good rest!!!one thing i do not like about a cold is my nose is red!!!

  61. I don’t think you should let clumsy the elf drive the sleigh becausehe seems a little clumsy [like his name]he might give the children the wrong presents

  62. hi santa i thank that if you stay safe for the gurmsthen you wont get sick but if you do get ick i would let the elf die but only if you trust them.LOL
