    Santa has a few short days before Christmas and his list is still long. In the good old days, things were so much easier! Kids asked for trains and hula hoops, the elves worked hard, and bullying among the reindeer was grand fun. This holiday season, he faces tariffs on China, unionized elves, and twerking reindeer obsessed with social media. It’s enough to make even the jolliest of elves grumpy. Will the North Pole find a resolution in time?
