Join the event on Christmas Eve!
(He just took off, eheh... that was his last post before hopping on the sleigh! Actually, I had to write it for him as he was too clumsy with his big gloves!)
I hope Santa remembered to bring his long johns!
Before taking off, Santa went to the barn to check on the reindeer! - and, yes, he also had to pee, eheh!! It is going to be a hectic night for him tonight!
Ehi kids, guess where are we headed to? Anywhere nearby your chimney? :)
Finally! Santa is gone and now I can take few minutes to myself to breath.... and open few letters I received in these last days! let's begin with this one...... (yes, kids, despite being quite aged, I can handle emails quite awesomely! ahah!)
I am so lucky to snag the best elf job there is!
For those who don't know... I am going to keep track of my husband through
a) the updates from the Elves
b) the information the Command Center passes me frequently
c) NORAD Santa Tracker.
What is it? It is the oldest (since 1955) and most well known Santa Tracking service offered to the public during December of each year. With this new Twitter thingy, basically it brought the old, dear Santa into the 20th century! And into the 21st century as well!
Last Spotted: North Pole - Santa sees some ships - are they U.S. Navy?
Whaaaaat? Santa posting himself???? From the sleigh? How did he do that? I think the Correspondent Elf had a hand in this....
-- Since my husband does not really know how to use a computer, I had to learn how to liveblog so you kids can follow him all around the world. (don’t tell him, but his fingers are a bit too fat for him to type) ---
Let me introduce you my great nine companions for this trip:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Headed to Tarawa, Kiribati! Will be there in one minute!
Did you know? Christmas in Russia, like in many other Orthodox countries, is celebrated on the 7th of January instead of today? This is due to the 13-day difference between the Gregorian calendar and the older Julian calendar. In order to keep Russian holiday traditions alive during the Soviet Union (when Russia was an atheist state), many moved these traditions to the New Year (‘noviy god’) celebrations.
'S Rozhdestvom, as I heard down here in Russia
Weather alert! We are flying into a Tropical Cyclone! Santa will be ok! The reindeer know how to navigate these winds. www.wunderground.com
Remember: it’s summer in Australia at Christmas so some people celebrate by camping or surfing! Also, people tend to have BQ or serve cold dishes because of the weather.
