Santa Skips a Tradition

Santa Skips a Tradition

Hello everyone,

It has been 73 days since we last saw Santa. It has been 73 days since ANYONE has seen Santa.

Both the North Pole Tracking Department and now the North Pole Security Department are using all their resources to try and find him.

But Santa just doesn’t want to be found.

And now it is affecting tradition.

Every year Santa meets with the media and they conduct an interview with him. You can read his past interviews at this link.

That’s not happening this year. This year Mrs. Claus is doing the interview. It should be published within the next few weeks (unless Santa shows up first).

That will make it really interesting and I am sure folks will enjoy it.

But I have to wonder how many other traditions are going to be disrupted this year because Santa Claus has disappeared.

Where, oh, where is Santa?

Silence from Santa is Deafening

Silence from Santa is Deafening

Hey everyone,

It has been almost 7 weeks since Santa left the North Pole.

He said he would be gone for a while. He told us we would not hear from him. He even said not to worry.

But frankly – I’m worried.

Do you see the countdown clock up there on the right? Can you see how little time left we have until Christmas Eve?

Can you explain all the strange things going on right now? The trackers out hunting for Santa, the sleighs being built, the pilots in flight training…this is all making me nervous.

But worst of all is this idea that Santa is checking his voice mail in his office…but he is NOT talking to anyone at the North Pole. Not even Mrs. Claus.

That makes no sense to me. It is almost like Santa is trying to avoid everyone at the North Pole on purpose. It is almost like he is daring the whole North Pole to go looking for him?

Why?

Time to have a serious talk with Mrs. Claus about Santa. Something isn’t right.

North Pole Media Explodes with Worries About Santa

North Pole Media Explodes with Worries About Santa

A report from the North Pole Gazette on Saturday has upset a lot of people at the North Pole. The newspaper article said authorities at the Flight Command Center are really “hunting Santa”, not just using Santa’s planned absence as a training vehicle for tracker elves.

The article has led to widespread speculation and genuine worry among elves working for Santa.

“If Santa is missing we should know that,” said Elf Dwight Mancrado, a stocking technician in Santa’s Workshop. “I don’t need to be here making socks that won’t be used for four months when I could be out looking for the Big Guy and bringing him home.”

Elf Dwight’s comments are typical of what many elves have expressed. On radio call-in shows, on North Pole websites online and in the North Pole employee lunchroom all the talk is Santa and whether or not he needs rescue.

According to Elf Ed Zachary, who works part time at the Gazette, the elf who wrote the story is a good journalist and his sources check out.

“This is the real deal,” Ed Zachary said, “but I think there are too many elves jumping to conclusion here. We were all here when Santa made his announcement and explained what he is doing. If there is a search and rescue operation going on I think someone should step up and confirm for us whether or not Santa is really lost. I don’t know think he is. And if he isn’t lost, why would the Flight Command Center be using his absence in this way? Who rescues someone who doesn’t want to be rescued?”

That question may have been answered by Mrs. Claus this morning, who held a hastily called press conference for North Pole media. Speaking from a prepared statement at the podium of the media center at Santa’s Workshop, Mrs. Claus declared, “Santa Claus is not lost. We might not know where he is for sure, because we haven’t heard from him, but we know he is not lost.” Mrs. Claus refused to take any questions.

That statement has done very little so far to calm the worries of elves at the North Pole.

“This is going to be a whopper of a distraction,” Elf Bernard at Santa’s Workshop told me. “We already lost most the day on Saturday. We need everyone to calm down, do their work and let Santa be Santa. If Mrs. Claus says there is no concern, then we should be focused on other things, like getting our work done.”

Santa Sighting Proven False

Santa Sighting Proven False

Hi all,

Nearly a week ago we reported a possible Santa sighting in Alaska.

It appears now that report was false.

The guys over in the Tracking Center are not saying why that report is false. We only know that Elf Agent X got involved in the investigation and that locked down all the details.

So we are back to once again not knowing where Santa is or when we will hear from him.

We also don’t know when Santa will be back.

But we assume that will happen before Christmas.

Wait a minute….what if Santa does NOT come back before Christmas? What then?

I think I will schedule a meeting with Mrs. Claus.

We should talk about this.
