Rishile reply #25. St. Nicholas will visit 1 continent per year. Apologies for any disappointment. Substitute Santas are on furlough. Many are in an "at risk" group.

I did wonder if Santa would be working at home this year  ;D

We've just been asked by my son's school to be careful to keep apart when picking up the children in order to comply with the 'groups of six' rule. The problem with that is there isn't enough room for all the parents to do that. I feel that a lot of pressure is being put on schools to achieve something that they can't possibly achieve.

Stop press. Possible alternative Christmas arrangement for Australasia. A leak from a well-placed source suggests that Father Christmas is considering cancelling his usual summer holiday cruise. He  may instead use the time to provide a special delivery service to Australasia if the continent moves Christmastide to June.

No Santa and his elves have been in quarantine since April in their own bubble, Santa has his own custom made face mask and his sleigh has been fitted with hand sanitiser  and an automatic decontamination capsule in place of the driving seat.
There was a discussion about whether his reindeer would have to comply with the rule of six but as they are in a work environment they will be exempt.

I have to admit to a sleepless night worrying about the reindeer.  They would have had to be in two teams of three and no leader to guide them.  Rudolph would have been made redundant.  That really would have been the last straw.

  If Australasia moves Christmas to June, it will be in the winter, where it properly belongs!

It might have literally been the last straw. Hay and straw might be in short supply this winter and expensive after topsy-turvy seasons, spring drought, wet & windy summer.
May be no hay for crib mangers. Maximum number of shepherds allowed to visit at a time will be 3; or 4 in Scotland. Quarantine guidelines complicate timing for the Three Wise Men. The star and the Holy Family may have left Bethlehem before the foreign gentlemen arrive.

Here in Wales, if they were to congregate outdoors, up to thirty would be able to attend. Consequently the shepherds, the wise men and, of course, the Holy Family could all be accommodated in one group. Result.
