Santa, Mrs. Claus and many of Santa’s reindeer staged a surprise return to the North Pole late Friday.
Around midday on Friday a cloud-like object appeared in distant skies south of the North Pole. A check with the North Pole Weather Department confirmed it was not an incoming storm.
At first, the large object incited fear among elves at the North Pole as it grew larger in the grey, somewhat cloudy skies in the distance.
Elf Victoria Wassail took to the microphone in the studios of North Pole Radio News and anchored a live report. You can listen to that report in the player above.
In a short period of time it was determined that the object was led by a sleigh piloted by Santa and Mrs. Claus. They were leading tens of thousands of reindeer back to the North Pole in advance of Operation Merry Christmas.
This is a developing story.
