North Pole Newsflash 2010: Santa Fit To Fly!

Posted by Santa Claus on December 21st, 2010


North Pole — (Dec. 21, 2010) – Santa Claus’ personal doctor, Dr. Alf Doctor, today told the press that Santa Claus and the are fit to fly .

“It is true”, said Dr. Doctor.  “Santa Claus and the reindeer had their annual doctor visit today”.

When asked to tell everyone how Saint Nick looked, Dr. Doctor replied,

“His eyes — how they twinkled!
His dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses,
His nose like a cherry!

He had a broad face,
And a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed,
Like a bowl full of jelly!

He was chubby and plump;
A right jolly old elf;
And I laughed when I saw him,
In spite of myself!”

One elf reporter asked where Santa Claus was today.  Dr. Alf Doctor replied that Santa was very busy.   He was getting his reindeer and sleigh ready for the big night.

Another elf reporter asked Dr. Alf Doctor if he had any worries about Santa’s health.  Dr. Doctor said, “He is feeling great, but Father Christmas does seem a little skinny this year.  I put him on a strict diet of milk, cookies and other yummy treats Christmas Eve.  That will give him the extra energy he needs to deliver all those presents.”

Dr. Doctor also said that Rudolph’s nose is glowing very bright.

“His nose it glows so bright,
It really is a sight!
So I say, here today,
With merry and delight,
Rudolph can guide the sleigh
For Santa’s famous flight! ”

Of course, the elves make sure Santa and the reindeer stay healthy and safe on their big journey.  They track him using on Christmas Eve.   As a bonus, people will be able to watch live texting between Santa and Elf Control as Santa makes his famous flight Christmas Eve.  There are always some fun surprises!

Dr. Doctor ended the meeting with, “I hereby certify Santa Claus and his reindeer fit to fly Christmas Eve!”

Merry Christmas!

Dr. Alf Doctor

P.S.  Do you think Santa is ready to deliver all those presents?

  49. Frazer

    Dear Santa, Thank you for giving me some presents I can’t wait for Christmas so I can get them. mummy made you some cookies and we will leave them out for you. We don’t have a chimney but we have a magic key that we will leave out for you. Lots of kids in Christchurch don’t have chimneys because of the earthquake and they may not have a magic key so you can use mine to get into their houses if you like. I would be sad if they did not get any presents because you couldn’t get in. love Frazer – 5 yrs – (dictated to mummy)
