Santa is in the Philippines delivering a variety of gifts and essentials in this place where just a month or so ago a terrible storm caused so much damage.
A lot of folks don’t know this but Santa also works year round with international relief organizations to help folks who have been affected by natural disaster. In fact, it is one of the big jobs Santa handles when it isn’t Christmas. But even if it is Christmas Santa works to help out. It is the least he can do and this Christmas there are a lot of good folks in the Philippines who need basic things like water, food, blankets and medicine. Santa is delivering a lot of that stuff, especially in areas that are easier to reach by sleigh than any other way.
Bedtime warnings are starting to reach into the Middle East, where Christmas Eve celebrations have been happening for a while now.
The North Pole post office also reports that mail coming in from Europe is at record-setting levels.
