200 Days

200 Days to Santa’s Launch

There are officially 200 days until Santa’s launch and elves all over the world mark the milestone.

Over at North Pole Flight Command it is actually a very hectic time. This 200-day mark is a big one. Elf Buck Sanchez will be reviewing all operations and meeting with Santa this week to report on what he finds.

Here at SantaTrackers.net the milestone is marked in a more quiet way. While we note with some anticipation the closeness of Santa’s launch there is not as much urgency yet as it relates to Tracker Elves and their training.

“Elves who work as trackers this year would be advised to get on board early to get up to speed,” Elf Roger Star said. “We have a lot of changes these year, for sure. But we have time yet to learn those new processes and to become a bigger part of the tracking team for Santa. This year we are focusing on quality instead of quantity, so to speak. We feel that if we have better elves than we have had in the past we think we won’t need so many of them.”

What does a tracker elf need to be working on at this point in the countdown?

Elf Roger advises all elves go to Elf University to brush up on their skills and the changes already announced for this year. He also told me that elves need to be ready to participate in Christmas in July where a lot of big news will be breaking about tracking Santa this year.

Thank you, Elf Harold, for always sharing information. 200 days until Santa’s launch sounds faster to me. Okay, I’ll go to Elf University to brush up on my skills. I hope I become a better elf than last year and I could help Santa, Elf Crash, and elves of the North Pole more this year! Thank you in advance for your advice in the future too ^^
