Santa getting ready at the North Pole

Santa gets his reindeer ready at the North Pole.

NORTH POLE (NBC) — Last minute holiday preparations are underway at the North Pole this week. Santa Claus and his elves are hard at work preparing for his most important journey of the year.

Kriss Kringle is busy herding his reindeer and making sure they’re in line. Donner has given Santa some trouble but Saint Nick says he and the other reindeer will be ready for the big trip.

As for what fills his sleigh, Santa is taking some last minute requests mainly of the tech variety. He says, “It’s about 70% electronics. Ipads, Iphones, laptops, tablets, it goes on and on and on and some people want two or three of those.”

Once Santa begins his Christmas Eve famous journey, you can follow him from the comfort of your home. Norad will be tracking Saint Nick starting at 11 p.m. Tuesday Austin time. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
