150 Days Until Santa Launches

Hi ho!

It’s still Christmas in July here at the North Pole – but Mrs. Claus is all business.

Today she convened the head elves from the Tracking Department, the Weather Department and all of Santa’s launch team to review plans for Santa’s launch on Christmas Eve.

“We have 150 days until Santa launches,” Mrs. Claus said. “We have 150 days to make this the most perfect launch of Santa’s sleigh in history. I want no mistakes. I want no surprises.”

I’ve never seen Mrs. Claus like this. She was very nice, like she ALWAYS is, but she was very direct and very serious.

“We have many reasons to be concerned with what this season will bring,” Mrs. Claus said. “Santa and I want the world to know they can depend on us and we will have a Merry Christmas”.

That comment raised quite a few eyebrows.

But nothing could have prepared us for the stuff Mrs. Claus talked about after she said that.

What terrific plans are in place for 2017!!!

I can’t wait to tell you about them.

But…I’ve been sworn to secrecy for now.

Things are happening. And announcements will be made in time.

But this is a very exciting time for us at the North Pole.
