Crowds Gather for Santa’s Launch Despite the Weather

updateElf families and non-working crew are beginning to gather over at Santa’s Stables. Bleachers have been set up to accommodate the crowds that will come to see Santa off.

“They better be bundled up!” cautioned Elf Billy in Santa’s Weather Center. “I don’t expect conditions out there to improve. It is windy, cold and the snow is up to the roofline in many places out there. Tough conditions to watch Santa’s sleigh launch.”

Speaking of Santa’s sleigh we are receiving good news that things are quickly improving over there. We don’t know why for sure but we heard that Elf Doyle was there with a sandwich and that, for some odd reason, seems to be the turning point of all the problems. We will get the full information and update you as soon as we can.
