Mrs. Claus was in Canada this week to celebrate Thanksgiving there with her family, as we reported earlier. But she has not returned to the North Pole as scheduled.
According to a press release from her office today Mrs. Claus has decided to extend her stay. She is safe and well.
North Pole Flight Command, using new technology in a test of the Reindeer Tracking Office, confirms that Mrs. Claus’ reindeer are indeed still in Canada.
Elf Trixie, Mrs. Claus’ Chief of Staff, said she did hear from Mrs. Claus earlier this week to review “routine data” in a scheduled phone call. Mrs. Claus felt then that since everything was going so well at the North Pole there was no need for her to return as scheduled.
It is not yet known when she will return.
The question was asked last week before Mrs. Claus left about “who is in charge?” while both she and Santa are away.
That technically falls to Elf Ernest, Senior Vice President of Public Relations and chair of the North Pole Santa’s Council. Elf Ernest declined to comment when I called him.
