Mrs. Claus has notified her office that she will again be absent from the North Pole again this week.
This is the second week in a row that Mrs. Claus has cancelled her planned meetings. She is the coverage for Santa, who has been away from the North Pole since last March on walkabout.
Elf Ernest, who is a senior vice president at the North Pole, issued a rare “team update on “Operation Merry Christmas” this morning.
He urged elves in all departments to stay focused in the absence of Santa and Mrs. Claus.
He reminded all elves that all departments are on track and that there are no operational concerns at this time that would require Santa or Mrs. Claus to be here this week.
It’s an important time because Santa usually LEAVES the North Pole right after Halloween to begin visiting with children and families around the world. Santa is indeed scheduled, on his official calendar, to leave the North Pole on November 1st. That was scheduled long before Santa even left.
