I have been training with my fellow warriors for the past few weeks, crawling under garland barriers, avoiding mistletoe, and lots of reindeer games. I think we are just about ready for our first incursion on Christmas, building up to our assault on SHQ (Santa’s Headquarters) on the 23rd. My only fear is that the man-made snow that we are training on may not be a reasonable facsimile of the snow that we encounter near SHQ. Plus, we have added a swim section to our training regimen, since the north pole is thawing.

Ahhh!  I love this time of the year.
