Santa sighted a deep breath as worry and uncertainty gave way, leaving a feeling of relieve and accomplishment. The year was one of the worst he’d seen so far. A large part of his helpers was moving from the North Pole to Antarctica to satisfy their ambient temperature preferences.

But he had succeeded: the wishes processing program was finished, and the elves would be helping Santa from the comfort of their new homes.
