North Pole Newsflash 2012: Santa Fit To Fly!


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

North Pole — (Dec. 21, 2012) – 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”.

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

I wanted to tell you that you are so kind for going around the whole world just to make all the kids in the world happy. I just don’t know what to give you or do for you because you have always made me happy with all the things that I have heard about that you have done for everyone so I want to make it up to you Santa Clause. I also wanted to tell you that I have been counting the days till Christmas, their is a month and eight days till Christmas and I can’t weight that long because I am just so exited I’ve been going crazy making so many things for Christmas and I have been thinking of so many ideas of what I am going to do on Christmas Eve. I am going to wake up at 4:30 A.M. again on Christmas Eve and then tell my parents that you came and then I am going to open my stocking and then my presents and I know I’m going to get the best presents because of you because you are a mind reader and you are going to make me so happy.

  15. I’m happy Santa can make it this year, but instead of milk and cookies I would advice veggies and maybe some peanut butter for protein I rather see a thin Santa than a Santa with diabetes or him dropping dead from being so over weight.
