There are now just 25 days left until Santa launches from the North Pole.
For over 11 months there have been markers along the way to Santa’s launch. Now it is getting very, very close.
Today, at the 25-day mark, there are signs things are coming together at the North Pole:
1. Santa’s reindeer have completed the Reindeer Games and are in training for the big day. The only reindeer in question is Vixen, who is still recovering from surgery over the summer.
2. Santa’s Workshop has been busy all year and reports have surfaced that production appears to be on schedule or even a little bit ahead.
3. The Wrapping Department is completely caught up to the Workshop and is wrapping presents at a rate of roughly 2.4 million per hour, a new record.
4. The North Pole Post Office is processing tens of millions of letters and wish lists for Santa each day. They too report an on-time performance so far.
Santa’s sleigh continues to perform above expectations. There are rumors things are going so well that the test flights might end early this year.
