Haha, Mrs. Claus. Thanks for the laugh.
setting course for Tehran, Iran - 1 minute 10 seconds!
So far, more than 2.1 billion gifts delivered!
The sack is still full of presents!
One of the wise men who visited baby Jesus with gifts is said to have come from Iran.
Santa! Stop eating the shirini keshmeshi! Get back in the sleigh so we can take off!
Santa, the elves and I make our own gifts to exchange with each other. Once you've been making gifts for as long as we have, it gets pretty easy!
and Santa is now preparing to take off to Qatar in 2 minutes!
thank you for the kind wishes! and I love snicker doodles!
Santa-- did I pack you enough hot chocolate?
Yes, I have plenty - thank you dear!
Don't worry too much, Mrs. Claus. Even if he runs out of what you've sent, I've got a stash waiting for us with a friend in Yemen.
In Ethiopia, some people celebrate Christmas (Ganna) on January 7th. At dawn on the morning of Ganna, people get dressed in white and wear a traditional garment called a shamma. It's a thin white cotton piece of cloth with brightly colored stripes across the ends. The early Ganna mass can start as early as 4:00am so they need to be well rested the night before!
Hi Nicholas, yes - I had to learn every language so I could communicate with the people in every country I travel to!
Santa, you seem to be right on schedule, keep up the great work!
It is much easier to deliver all these presents when everyone is asleep and there is no traffic!
We are! Trust me – it's not easy to make sure our dear boss isn't taking too much time straightening out ornaments and making sure the presents are just perfect under everyone's trees.
Santa doesn't want to risk getting sick this time of year so he makes sure he gets plenty of rest, exercises often and eats his fruits and vegetables!
Santa, don't forget to re-fuel the reindeer on your next stop!
I have many friends, but I think my closest friends are the elves who I see everyday in the North Pole - and of course, my dear, Mrs. Claus.
Taking a moment in Mozambique to drop off the gifts.
Wow-- Santa's delivered over 2.3 BILLION presents so far. I think we might break a record tonight!
Let's see how fast this sleigh can go!
Beautiful weather in Beira, Mozambique
