When my kids were little I was only off on Christmas if it fell on a Sunday. My wife was only off on Christmas if it came on one of her regular days off. Denise worked for a nursing home and I worked for WSUS. We were fortunate enough to always have a late Christmas morning after I got home from work and before Denise had to leave for work.
Many other moms and dads can't be home for Christmas either. police officers, corrections officers, firemen, nurses, doctors, hospital workers, men and women in the military even people who work at gas stations and some restaurants. The nice thing for these families is that Santa has a back up plan. Revealed in a letter from Santa to Stephanie Lynn last week. Stephanie was nice enough to post the letter on her Facebook page.
In the letter Santa says: He understands many parents have to work to keep us safe and healthy." He goes on to say Christmas Day is "about family" and even though moms and dads have to work he has a back up plan. He gives alternative dates for delivering gifts and gives parents the option to check the date that works for them.
Even the Facebook page for the NORAD Santa Tracker has confirmed Santa makes special trips before and after Christmas so loved ones can be together. NORAD's pages goes on to say these special visits are no less special.
