The test flights of Santa’s sleigh continues over parts of Asia and the Pacific ocean this week. For those following along on the map you will likely see the sleigh heading north in the coming days.

That is because the test pilots and the reindeer will be bringing the sleigh back to the North Pole and will be taking a brief break to celebrate Halloween. The North Pole traditionally celebrated Halloween in a big way. You can likely receive news of that event at the North Pole website.

The break will be very brief.

One of the things being testing right now is the data flow between the sleigh and the new Tracking Santa app.

Testers of the app may see some strange things in the app over the next week or so.

In an announcement released during Christmas in July at the North Pole Santa has set the tracker elf goal for 2020 at 40 million total worldwide.

While this may seem like a high figure we must remember that last Christmas closed with more than 25 million new tracker elves on record. Assuming most of those elves return to duty this year we need to only find 15 million new tracker elves who will track Santa for Santa in 2020.

Given the circumstances of the world in 2020 we do not feel this will be a problem.

New elves are recruited and managed via our sister website, SantaTrackers.net.
