Sleigh Investigation Cancelled

North Pole Security closed their investigation into whatever happened with Santa’s new sleigh in 2022.

The sleigh was famously troubled when test flights began in July. The sleigh crash in test trials in August and suffered with various performance issues all year long. After the final troubled test flight on Christmas Eve, it was determined not to use the new sleigh at all for Santa’s flight.

Santa shocked everyone at Flight Command and at the Research and Development Department when he opted not to use last year’s sleigh for his flight. Instead he chose to use one of the largest and heaviest sleighs ever made in history, a model that was last flown for Christmas 1972.

Despite the age of the sleigh, it was retrofit with current computers and communications equipment in the hours before Santa took off. To the surprise of nearly everyone, Santa then went on to flawlessly deliver to the world at apparent record speeds, setting yet another all-time delivery time record.

No explanation was given today by the North Pole Security Department for their closure of the investigation. According to Elf Agent X, head of North Pole Security, Santa wants the elves in Research and Development and in Flight Command to enjoy a few more days off before he meets with them to “discuss the future of Santa’s sleigh”.

This is a breaking story, more developments as we get them.

Thank you, Elf Harold. Yeah, I was surprised Santa chose the sleigh and also one of the newspapers in my country knew his sleigh this year is that he used in 1972 and they explained how his sleigh fled so faster than any airplanes! Did Santa say why he chose the largest and heaviest sleigh? I hope the Flight Command has some new information for the investigation. He’s so lovely and thinks of them a lot. Please have a break until the discussion. I’m looking forward to hearing about the next! XD
