Two weeks from today we will be tracking Santa and looking to the skies for him to come. Two weeks from today is Christmas Eve.
That makes it the busiest time of the year at the North Pole – the absolute peak of Operation Merry Christmas.
We talked with Elf Ernest, Senior Vice President of Public Relations at the North Pole, one of the most experienced and senior elves working for Santa. He said he has never seen the North Pole better prepared than it is this year.
“Santa was gone most of the year on walkabout and you can hardly tell,” Elf Ernest said. “It’s been very smooth this year. Every department has met their goals, the sleigh is testing very well and the reindeer, with the one exception in Vixen, are about all ready to go. We’re all so very excited for Christmas!”
Santa’s Workshop, the Wrapping Department, the Department of Redundancy Department are all showing green lights on the big board at North Pole Flight Command. That means everything is on track and going very well.
Also, coming up later this week, Mrs. Claus and I will be in North Pole Chat on Saturday. We’re not sure yet of a chat with Santa, but I know Elf Ernest is working on making that happen.
