When you think about getting to work only one night a year, that sounds pretty sweet. You might say Santa has a great thing going. But there is much more to it than that. All of his supervisory duties year round, spying on everyone to make sure they're staying in line, dealing with the elf and reindeer unions, flooding toy factories at the north pole due to melting snow (the Greenhouse Effect, you know... global warming). He's really got it pretty rough. Then there's Christmas night.

It's a long night. Much longer than 24 hours. Consider the time zones, the rotation of the earth, the weight of the sleigh, the tolls and passports he's forced to produce. He could be up for days on end before it's all said and done.

Before a long stretch of nothing to eat but cocoa and cookies, Santa stopped in to grab a delicious crepe and a cup of the house chai. He was not disappointed! Just for fun, he left a present for people to find across from the restrooms on the shelf.

Only good little clue solvers get to find this during the jolliest season of the year! Once Santa begins his delivery service to the non-naughty on his list, the present will disappear!

Notes: Thanks to W S M and C from Colorado for letting Utah enjoy this traveling box for a season!
