Reindeer fatigue is setting in among the teams of reindeer being used for test flights of Santa’s sleigh. Since early August sleighs have been in flight almost constantly, with reindeer and test pilots often working as long as 12 hours at a time.

“We only requested about 3400 reindeer, thinking Santa’s other reindeer would be starting to show up by now,” said Elf Buck Sanchez, Operations Director at North Pole Flight Command. “We need to give these teams some rest. So we have sent in a request for some reindeer relief.”

It should be noted that all of these reindeer working the test flights are specially chosen for this duty. They are used to a rigorous schedule. None of them are injured or in poor health at this time.

Santa’s sleigh continues flights over the mid-Atlantic this week.

We are seeing more and more reindeer returning to the North Pole in recent days. Santa has directed that test flights of the new sleigh accelerate. This means he needs more reindeer.

A call was made earlier this week to reindeer ranches around the world maintained by the North Pole. Elves working in those locations enthusiastically responded to Santa’s request.

Santa may venture out to visit some of the reindeer ranches soon. If true, it will be the first time he has left the North Pole since he returned abruptly from his walkabout in early April.

Of course, the virus concerns are still very real and some at the North Pole have expressed doubts that Santa should go. A recent visit with Elf Dr. Lionel P. Spock suggests that Santa has received an evaluation and has been cleared for travel. If this happens we will let you know.

We have had nothing but good news coming from the test flights of Santa’s new sleigh. It is performing very, very well.
