Hola, Trackers!

It’s official: Sector 4 is now in the red zone.

For those tracker elves in South America this is your call to action. For the next 24 hours you are on duty — tracking Santa for Santa.

We don’t yet have any orders yet to fulfill from Santa or North Pole Flight Command.

But we’re ready.

In the meantime, I would advise getting some sleep.

We have a long day ahead of us.
