A Message from I Spot Santa Directors, Pasquale & Autumn Murena
One of the most common questions we get about I Spot Santa’s video elves is: “How did we meet the video elves?” The answer is, Santa Claus asked us in 2009 to start spotting him during the month of December to help spread the spirit and joy of Christmas. He picked 15 of his favorite elves and asked them to work with us on this important task. These magical elves happily agreed and they are a great help in helping us spot Santa Claus.
Where do they live?
During the month of December they are traveling all around the world, sleeping in the outdoors, which they love! During the off season they live in a magical village that only 6 people know where it is.
How old are they?
The oldest video elf we work with is over 4000 years old and his name is Kringle. The youngest video elf is Buttercup just coming in over 700 years old. Despite their ages they are very healthy and active.
The eldest elf that works with us, his beard is as long as he is tall and all the other elves look up to him. His specialty is his patience, he will sit in one spot for a week if needed.
All the girl elves loves Whitney, he’s handsome and very polite to everyone. He’s a climber, enjoys hiking up every mountian for a chance to spot Santa Claus.
We are always afraid checking out a camera to him because there is a chance it will come back in pieces. He was once riding a bull when he got a photo of Santa.
Cute as a button she is, with brown hair and holiday painted nails. She spends most of her time in America’s National Parks spotting Santa Claus.
Her favorite dinner is candy canes, you will know when you see Ribbon because her hair is tied into a bow with a candy cane stripped ribbon.
His favorite part of the the US is the Southern States, he not only spots Santa for us down there but he can tell you where the best BBQ is in every one of those states.
With the temperatures in South America and having no hair, he’s never seen without his fishing hat on. He tries to spot Santa near lakes so he can fish when he works.
The fastest video elf in the business, she’s proud to say that she is the only one that has captured photos of Santa in Argentina and Columbia in the same night.
No other elf enjoys his job as much as Jolly, maybe that’s because he is travels with a kangaroo named Little Foot on all of his Santa spotting adventures.
Nessy is the toughest of our video elves, one year after getting a photo of Santa a lion swallowed his camera. He wrestled him to the ground until he gave it back.
Ready for his next expedition he carries a compass that was given to him by Santa Claus for saving Prancer from an avalanche. Santa’s reindeer are by his side.
His signature move after spotting Santa Claus is flipping! He’s been known to do cartwheels from one side of Asia all the way to the other side without spilling his drink.
Since she works mainly on islands for us, she is tanned. Her specialty is sailing from island to island spotting Santa Claus for us, her favorite location is Fiji.
He’s the smallest of our video elves but one of the best spotters we have. He spends most of his time in the large continent of Russia spotting Santa and hiding in nesting dolls.
She has a case of allergies and tries to stay away from flowers to stop her sneezing. She sometimes sneezes before a spotting missing Santa in her video.
