On the heels of his devastatingly embarrassing Naughty List leak, Santa Claus finds himself again in the spotlight with news of his potential retirement. Beleaguered by the fallout from his hacking scandal, Santa has apparently begun talking about calling it quits, according to an elf speaking on the condition of anonymity due to concerns about his continued employment. Our elf on the inside says Santa immediately enlisted Chris, Jr., when he discovered he’d been hacked, deferring to his son’s computer expertise. The younger Kringle’s deft handling of the hacking scandal’s fallout has impressed North Pole fans around the globe, renewing questions about Santa’s qualifications to continue leading the holiday season.
When will the son inherit the father’s trademark operation? The question of succession has long plagued Santa and his elf advisors. Chris, Jr., hasn’t always been silent about his own opinion. We resurfaced a previous tweet from Chris Jr.’s account: “some people don’t know when to quit #dads”. Still, Santa gave Chris, Jr., full credit for saving the day with his idea to eliminate the List this year. Perhaps there will be a new Claus in town next season, this time with Norton’s protection.
