The Review visited Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary to talk about Santa Claus, elves and the holidays with kindergarteners.

Why does Santa give presents to boys and girls?

"Because they're good."

How does he tell if they have been good or bad?

"If they are yelling, it kind of means they are a little bit on the bad side."

How about good?

"If they give their puppy food, if they have one."

Where is Santa's workshop? Is it somewhere on Bainbridge?

"No. It's at the North Pole. It's very cold, it has lots of ice."

Why do you think Santa lives at the North Pole.

"So he doesn't get too hot."
