North Pole Newsflash 2016: Santa Fit To Fly!

Santa Claus check-up time
Santa Claus is fit to fly!


North Pole — (Dec. 22, 2016) – Santa Claus’ personal doctor, Dr. Alf Doctor, today told the press that Santa Claus and the reindeer are fit to fly Christmas Eve.

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

“I was getting concerned about Santa.  I know he was very worried when his sleigh went missing.  But all is well, I think.”

Dr. Doctor also checked the reindeer.  After all, Dancer and Blitzen hit a bit of a rough patch lately.

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.”

“I’m very happy that Dancer and Blitzen are all better and ready to fly too.”

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

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

Of course, the elves make sure Santa and the reindeer stay healthy and safe on their big journey. They track him at on Christmas Eve using the Santa Snooper (Santa’s special Christmas Eve webcam). People will also 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
