Meetings, meetings and more meetings! That has been the order this week as Santa has told elves here to “step on the gas!” in getting Operation Merry Christmas 2018 off the ground.
Everything is now running at an accelerated pace.
The meetings began with Santa announcing that the workshop transition is complete and that production in the workshop is fantastically ahead of schedule as a result. He has declared this to be a “trouble free Christmas” and he wants every department ready to deliver ahead of schedule.
That means starting a little earlier on the things.
The sleigh designers, for example, were instructed to get a test flight going on the new sleigh this next week.
The reindeer training schedule and the Reindeer Games have been moved up.
The Spit, Polish and Shine Division has been instructed to have no delays with the bells this year. The Wrapping Department was ordered to expand staff, step up training and to order more and more tape. Even the eggnog makers have been challenged to do more and to do it earlier.
The most exciting stuff may be for you Santa trackers out there. When Santa announced his goals for tracker recruitment this year people here gasped. I think we will see those guys get to work right away!
We are less than 100 days to launch. And things are in a high gear here at the North Pole.
