Meet Eggnog the Elf!

We caught up with a very busy Eggnog to chat about the North Pole, bells, and Christmas jokes...

19 November 2020 |

Hello Eggnog, how’s it going? 

Oh, very well thank you! It’s quite busy here in Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop, but I like being busy, it’s what I’m good at. 

You’ve come all the way here from the North Pole, is that right?

Yes! Correct! I’m a North Pole elf, which as I’m sure you know, is a very special type of elf.  

A very special elf indeed!

Is that because you work for another famous North Pole resident…?

Ha! Do you mean… Father Christmas? You’re not wrong! Well done you. I work for Father Christmas, or Santa Claus as he is also known, or St Nick, or the big fella in the red coat, or…

Yes I think we’ve got it, thanks Eggnog. So what do you actually do? What’s your job title?

Ooh, that’s a good question. My job title is Chief Jingle Bells Inspector. It’s a very, very, very important role. 

I’m sure it is. Um… what does it involve?

Well… it’s quite simple. I am responsible for making sure all the bells are shiny enough, and loud enough, and jingly enough. Or they’re just not good enough!

Ah I see. Yes that is very important. What else do you do in the North Pole?

Bells take up a lot of my time. There’re always bells to inspect! And if some bells aren’t jingly enough, say, then they have to be jingled all the way, in the Jingle-O-Matic. So I don’t have a lot of spare time. But I must admit, if I do have a bit of time off, I enjoy a cheeky joke or two.

Ah, jokes! Excellent. What’s your favourite Christmas joke? 

Oh I say! There are so many! This is a good one: what kind of photo do elves take?

I don’t know…


Oh dear…

What about this one? What’s an elf’s favourite kind of music?


Wrap music! Do you get it? Wrap! Like wrapping presents! 

Yes we got it. Very good. I hope you’re saving the best jokes for Mr Gotalot’s Christmas Cracker?

Oh of course. I am very much looking forward to sharing my top jokes with the Gotalot fans. I’ve had special permission to come here from Father Christmas himself! Apparently he and Mr Gotalot are old friends. When Father Christmas heard that Mr G needed a hand this Yuletide, he thought I’d be the ideal elf to lend a hand. 

Or an ear…


Did someone say jingle bells?

Nothing. So what else do you and Mr G have in store for Mr Gotalot’s Christmas Cracker?

Oh, there’s loads of fun to be had – we’ll have a lovely chat about Christmas, play a game, sing a few songs, and tell each other jokes! It’ll be marvellous!

Yes, it sounds great. Well, thank you Eggnog, it’s been brilliant chatting to you. Let us know how it all goes!

I will! Thank you!
