Here at the North Pole, Christmas itself is a HUGE event (as you might imagine). Not only is there a PHENOMENAL AND GRAND party, starting late on the 24th and lasting through the entire next day, but Christmas actually lasts for about 2 weeks. After the initial festivities (which were so ubiquitous and constant that I haven't even been able to sit down and review the highlights yet), the events of celebration continue (but are less well-attended) for the rest of the year and into the beginning of January. Santa's away for the big party at the beginning, so he celebrates with all of us back at the Pole at the end of Christmas, on the night of January 5th.
Wow. WOW. That celebration was probably the biggest thing I've ever attended. I think the most amazing thing was this planetarium-like projection that happened out in the square -- it went on for 24 hours, and it was live scenes of Christmas from throughout the world, just projected right into the air. It was beautiful.
