Shall I stop by in Okinawa and catch some waves?
Back to Japan to finish the job! - I know I am a bit messy..
As they say in the Philippines, Maligayang Pasko everyone!
Just a few clouds here as we approach Tokyo! Visibility 6 miles!
Anyone can translate this for me? :)
@MDM I'll be there shortly! In the meantime, don't cheat, little MDM, and don't try to unwrap your presents under the tree ahead of time! I know you!
Wow-- a favourite dance move! It's been a few years since Santa's hit the dance floor but, if he had to choose, he'd probably say a combination of a jazz square and the running man.
Wow-- Santa's really moving now!
This just in-- Santa's on his way to Busan, South Korea
Sunny here!! We just went through snow in Seoul. I measured about a 1/2 of snow on Dasher's back!
Does anyone know what the most common present in Korea is?
The most common present is...money!
Making our way toward China. Right now the weather conditions are clear. Will let you know if that changes!
Santa likes to switch things up when in Korea and wear a blue suit. Variety is the spice of life, after all :)
Wow-- Santa passed the 1 billion present mark! And he's not even close to done yet.
As careful as Santa tries to be, sometimes children spot him as he's scurrying back up the chimney. Does anyone have any stories about sneaking a peek of the man in red?
Santa's looped back around and is heading back to China.
In Hong Kong, Santa Claus is known as "Sing Daan Lou Yan" (Christmas Old Man) in Cantonese or "Sheng Dan Lo Ren" in Mandarin.
I love seeing all the poinsettias decorating public squares as I fly across China!
We're just flying over the Great Wall of China now!
Oh, my-- the reindeer absolutely love carrots! And I know they'd love if you leave some out for them. Thanks, Sam!
One reason Santa loves his trips to China is because they sure know how to celebrate Christmas. In Hong Kong, a traditional party takes place every year called Winterfest and features a giant tree in Statue Square, a sparkling castle at Disneyland Hong Kong and ice skating at Ocean Park!
Sunny Elf here! We are running into some smoky conditions across parts of China. Seeing that here in Xi'an. Confirmed by official observation: www.wunderground.com (link)
Do reindeer fly? Of course I eat chips, Eunice!
Don't worry Maggie, Isabella, Jess and Mickie-- I'd never let Santa leave home without the proper attire :) Merry Christmas to you all, too!
We're right on schedule! Santa's almost arrived in Hong Kong.
