“It’s a heavy responsibility,” said Santa. “Every kid in town, young and old, is counting on me to show up so I have to plan my travel very carefully.”
“The challenge isn’t getting me to the tree lighting,” said Santa. “It’s all the cookies I eat at the Heritage Centre afterwards.”
Santa has a magical digestion that allows him, on Christmas Eve especially, to eat tons and tons of cookies without changing his outward appearance.
“But I definitely get heavier,” he says.
Normally Santa uses magic to power the reindeer sleigh and compensate for the weight gain. The whole herd of reindeer however isn’t ready for sled-pulling until later in December – which is why Santa always asks DFD to help him out for the Christmas Tree lighting .
“I can make it to the tree lighting okay on one reindeer,” he said. “But I have to plan ahead for getting home from the party.”
DFD and Santa Claus would like to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season and remind the public to take a lesson from Santa Claus.
