This is the transmission from Santa via a phone call we received two minutes ago from somewhere over Greenland.

We just finished delivering presents to kids in Iceland. What we found there with the boys and girls is quite typical on Christmas Eve all over the world.

A few too many kids are trying to stay up to see me this year and putting me a bit behind schedule. Remember, I can't come down the chimney if you are not asleep. I know it is exciting to think about tomorrow morning. We are hoping that there will be more kids asleep a little early so we can make up more time but we should be okay. Should still get to Federal Way on time. Hoping that some of you can help us out and go to sleep a little bit early. Remember, the faster you go to sleep the quicker morning will arrive.

I am looking forward to seeing the New York City skyline and passing over the Rockies later tonight. Mount Rainier will be a great sight as well.

I can't tell you exactly what time we will be in Federal Way, but it will be very soon.
