With less than 11 hours to go until Santa launches he reminds us that he will be naming this year’s sleigh just before he launches later tonight. He has still not settled on a name and he wants as many suggestions as possible.
We have been receiving name suggestions all year long. So far Santa has more than 175,000 suggestions given to him. But he wants more. Click here to participate.
A name for Santa’s sleigh is very important. Santa talks to his sleigh just like he talks to his Christmas tree. Santa can communicate with just about anyone or anything. That is one of his special skills. But Santa won’t talk to the sleigh without a name. The Weather Tracking Department also likes a name for Santa’s sleigh. Every sleigh performs differently. If something happens to this sleigh and Santa has to use a different one the tracking department likes to see the difference between them.
Remember — Santa always give his sleigh a GIRL name.
