The recent leak that Donner and Blitzen have decided to take early retirement has triggered a good deal of concern about whether they will be replaced and about other restructuring decisions at the North Pole.

Streamlining was inevitable as the reality that the North Pole no longer dominates the season’s gift distribution business.

Internet shopping has diminished Santa’s market share and they simply could not ignore this as their profits have plummeted.

Reduction in reindeer will also lessen airborne emissions for which this North Pole company has received unfavourable press. Climate change is something everybody, including Santa, has to take seriously.

However, it is confirmed that Rudolph’s role will not be disturbed as tradition still counts for something.

And also this is an opportunity to quash the leak that Rudolph’s nose got that way not from a cold but from substance abuse.

However, it has been announced that further restructuring will be needed to ensure that the global changes that the North Pole is facing in its' business do not take the company into bankruptcy. The subsidiary company called ‘Twelve Days of Christmas' are taking measures that will come into effect immediately.

These are as follows:

In addition to all this, making savings from both the main North pole company and its’ subsidiaries, delivery procedures will be closely examined as a prime feature of the restructure. Sadly it is possible deeper cuts will have to happen but in the meantime – have a very happy Christmas.
