8 Months Until Christmas

Happy April greetings!

Know what I saw the other day? Grass!

It is winter a little longer here at the North Pole than it is in many parts of the world but the snow is melting and the days are getting longer. It rained a little the other day and I saw grass for the first time since last fall.

Know what they call that?

A sign.

It is a sign that the seasons are changing and they change quickly. Winter changes to Spring which quickly changes to Summer. And before it the pumpkins will be here and we’ll all be talking about Christmas.

We tend to think of it as so far away right now. But I tell you it will be here before we know it.

How are things really at the North Pole? Are we on track? Can Santa be ready in time?

To be honest, things look pretty good right now.

Everyone is working hard, getting a lot done. There are no major news stories here to talk about, no major disruptions. Everything is moving along as it should.

Christmas appears in no danger here.
