Santa has flown his way back to the cooler climate of the North and is taking a short break while elf technicians try to fix the sleigh cam. He’s parked along the coast of the northern Kamchatka Penninsula.

I talked to him myself. He is not near any populated areas at the moment so he cannot stop somewhere for food or meet with kids. He does not expect his stop here to take long. We assume he will take care of the folks who populate the Kamchatka Penninsula soon, however.

We are receiving reports that many cities in Australia are looking forward to welcoming Santa with parades, lights and parties. Santa appreciates the goodwill and wishes he can stop but unfortunately he is very busy and cannot stop to celebrate with you.
