The Tracking Department isn’t the only North Pole department deploying elves at this hour. My staff of news reporters are at this hour moving to major cities around the world to report on Operation Merry Christmas. While the world focuses on the North Pole for the next 22 hours prior to Santa’s launch we will be positioning reporters to follow Santa around the world.
Each of the updates you will read tomorrow contains confirmed information of Santa’s visits. We do receive reports from regular folks all over the world and some times we report what they tell us — especially if Santa has visited. But we rely on a staff of about 1500 reporter elves to confirm all the information we publish. The work of bringing news for Santa Update never slows down for Christmas.
