Santa Claus Lives in North Pole, Alaska says Zeb the Duck

I, Zeb the Duck, have seen Santa’s house in North Pole, so I know he lives here.

I also saw this statue of Santa behind his sleigh.

My cousin Eider Duck and I sat in Santa’s sleigh, but we didn’t fly anywhere.

We were ready and eager to fly, but the reindeer were occupied.

Reindeer is eating. No flying for us today

This one was busy eating.   We guess reindeer need to eat to keep energy also.   For those of you that are curious, reindeer are also called caribou in Alaska.   There are large herds of migrating caribou or reindeer in northern Alaska.   But these reindeer are in pens so they are ready to fly for Santa.   When we were there a week ago, Santa’s house was not open to the public.   Santa is remodeling and many said he is adding a restaurant.   Mom has visited there before and she said they sell many great items.   Maybe next time Santa will be accepting visitors.   Santa’s House has been there since 1950 and he lives at 101 St. Nicholas Drive in North Pole, Alaska.   The entire town of North Pole seems to have the Christmas spirit all year.   The pole for the bank sign resembles a candy cane.

Many signs resemble candy canes

Yes, that temperature is correct.   The weeks before we arrived, the temperatures were well below 0.   Often -35 degrees F.  Brrrr.  But when we were there, the temperatures were above zero, often in the 20’s.   That 17 degrees on Mt. McKinley bank sign is correct.   We stopped at Wendy’s and it seemed like Christmas.

Christmas decorations at Wendy’s

This Christmas tree, presents, and even the picture on the wall remind us that every day can be like Christmas.   Even the trash can were decorated for Christmas.

Christmas reminder every day at Wendy’s in North Pole

Eider says that living there, every day seems like Christmas.   We saw lots of signs with candy canes.   We enjoyed our time in North Pole.   And we have more to show you next time.
