With just a few days until Santa’s launch tensions are rising a little at the North Pole. To talk to Santa or Mrs. Claus, this is a great Christmas because it’s been a great year.
But under the surface we have some elves expressing a little stress.
The Wrapping Department is just hitting their annual panic period. They cannot start their work until Santa’s Workshop completes theirs. But the last minute wish lists and changes to wish lists – which happens every year – is creating something of a backlog. They are measuring their time in hours now and it’s very busy over there.
The Reindeer Barn has a lot of worried people. Vixen’s condition is making many nervous because they feel bad for Vixen. But under the surface there is an unknown: if doctors say Vixen can’t fly, who takes her place and what does that mean?
The test flights of Santa’s sleigh ended a few days ago. That’s good news, right?
Well, not according to some rumors floating around.
There’s a story going around that Santa’s sleigh wasn’t tested with the new bells and the new bells have not been tested with Santa’s reindeer and if Vixen is not one of those reindeer the whole thing is going to fail.
Remember, that’s just a story. I’ve talked to many elves-in-the-know and they all deny there is any problem with Santa’s sleigh.
But this is life a few days before Christmas every year.
