Merry Greetings one and all!
We have had some pretty serious snow fall here at the North Pole in the last week or so. That has made the reindeer really frisky.
Elf Victor says he is glad to see that. Now is the time of year when the real serious training is going on.
The newer reindeer should have their flying skills down pretty well now. They are working on their strength and stamina. They are putting in long days right now because they need the muscle to do the job come Christmas Eve.
Each night I see Victor and his reindeer handlers heading back into the barn with some really pooped reindeer. That’s what happens this time of year.
Right around Thanksgiving he will give them a bit of a break. For right now though, these are very long days for those reindeer who will be expected to be in flight for most of December 23rd to December 25th.
