Great question, James! It usually takes a couple of years for them to be at the front of the Sleigh with Rudolph, but some learn faster. We like to give them all support and love - they usually get the hang of it eventually :)
Mrs. Claus do you remember how cute Comet looked when we first saw him?
now he's breezing through Plovdiv, Bulgaria!
We're off to Turkey now, how do you say "Merry Christmas" in Turkish, Mrs. Claus?
Oh I remember that one myself, you silly elf, it's "Noeliniz kutlu olsun"!
It's so awesome Sunny Elf! I am happy we're here for a little while :)
Oh Andrew, they do, we take little breaks throughout the night. They are used to taking power naps on rooftops while I am making my way down chimneys. Mrs. Claus keeps them healthy and well, they practice for this night all year and have great perseverance!
In Greek Happy/Merry Christmas is 'Kala Christougenna'
I wonder if Santa will let us make a quick stop for some baklava???
I don't see why not Sunny Elf! But promise me he doesn't indulge in sweets too much! He has a long night ahead of him!
Yay! I promise Mrs. Claus!!
Good question, Jasmine. My elves will usually sneak in a make sure kids are well asleep before I make my way over. I try to be as quiet as possible on my way down chimneys and stairs, but I have to admit I drop a few things here and there.
he's headed to Antalya, Turkey!
next stop, Beirut, Lebanon!
Fun fact: In Lebanon, Santa Claus/Father Christmas is known as Baba Noël.
Very very many Rohaan! There are some born every minute in fact! :)
Yay, it's so much warmer here in Jordan :)
Santa is on a roll tonight! less than a minute until he is in Jerusalem, Israel
Seems like Santa dropped something from his Sleigh here as we're nearing Jerusalem.
I agree Correspondent Elf! I am liking these temperatures from Jordan to Jerusalem! Almost 50F!
He's back on his sleigh, no worries. We're heading to Jerusalem now. SHALOM!
Hey Santa, check to see if the reindeer have enough carrot fuel when you stop in Bethlehem, Palestine next please!
Will do, command centre, please keep track of fuel levels correspondent elf.
I am on it, Santa! Rudolph's nose is as red as ever. Indicating sufficient fuel levels.
Santa has delivered almost 3 billion presents already as he heads towards Cairo, Egypt
Correspondent, you thought 50F was nice in Jordan, how about almost 60 degrees in Cairo!!
