Santa Taking a Break in Finland

updateSanta is still in Finland, his location unchanged since we last reported.

“I think we have a lot of excited kids in Europe,” Elf Quinton chuckled. “Santa told me he wants to give them a little more time to get completely asleep.” In the meantime, I’m told Santa is enjoying a cold turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce.
