Hello there! We are getting ready to go out on the test flight to make sure that the sleigh and reindeer are all ready for the big trip. Jingles and I have made a test route that will take me through Greenland and Iceland, then we will shoot over to Europe starting in Scotland down through Ireland and then over the mainland. I wanted to swing by Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower, dip down to Africa and then up and over to Germany and Russia. I figured from there we will hit India, Vietnam and Korea, up to China and Japan and then drop to Australia. Then I want to hit South America and then North America. I need to see the Hollywood sign, fly over the Midwest and drop in on Hermes Elementary School in Aurora Illinois. I figured I would drop down to New Orleans and grab some Jambalaya and up the east coast into Canada and then back to home. The flight should take several hours since were just flying and not stopping. I love making these test flights. I get to see so much going on in the world. I get to see how everyone celebrates the holidays and I can see all the love and happiness happening. It is such a wonderful sight. I truly enjoy seeing all the families gathering and making memories. Plus I get to see and smell all the wonderful foods being made. Did I ever tell you how much I enjoy good food? In fact I would love to see some of your favorite family recipes. Maybe I can get Mrs. Claus to make some of them.
So, the elves and reindeer are waiting on me and Mrs. Claus has packed me some cookies for the flight. I need to get dressed and out to the launch pad. I apologize for this being a short entry today but there is a lot to do before we take off on Dec. 24th. HO!HO!HO! Well good night my darlings, maybe you will see me on my test flight tonight. Sleep tight!
