Santa is visiting the island nation of Papua New Guinea.
According to flight logs from past years this is the earliest Santa has ever been there.
From what we can tell Santa may have to stop at some point during his flight tonight and rest because he’s going too fast. At this pace he’ll be in South America well before midnight. And that could be a problem. People in South America love to stay up late. Santa just can’t go there early.
We wonder what that means for maybe a change in flight plans for places like Canada. Is it possible Santa could arrive there even earlier?
We are receiving reports from happy people from several cities in Australia at this time.
But don’t be fooled. We will be hearing about Australia for several hours tonight. It is a very big place and people there love Santa. In the far west of the country isn’t not even Christmas morning yet. It is likely that Santa will leave Australia for a time and then return for those western portions a little later.
Flight engineers at the North Pole cannot believe how well this flight is going this year. The sleigh is perfect. Their reindeer are in top notch condition. And Santa is moving faster than ever. Just an incredible ride so far.
