Santa loves all of his elves. But because no two elves are identical and each elf has their own unique personality, Santa loves each elf differently. As far as having a favorite elf, love and favoritism do not mean the same thing. Santa doesn’t set out to have a favorite elf, but sometimes it just happens. For example, after a long night of delivering gifts, Santa might favorite the elf that brings him a nice cup of hot chocolate. But his favorite elf changes all the time and can change by the hour, the day, the week, the month, or the year.
