The Christmas experience has been enriched with the discovery of Herman, a homing pigeon who sits on Santa’s sleighdoing all the navigation of the Sleigh – he’s Santa’s GPS, and will fly down to Rudolph and whisper instructions in his ear as needed. Additional responsibilities include liaising with Air Traffic Control.
A little known fact is that Herman lives on Gin & Tonic and all good Children will leave a G&T alongside the Sherry & Mince Pie (for Father Christmas) and Carrot (for Rudolph).
There is currently a lively debate ongoing chez Coles about the existence of Herman and how it all works out. However we believe we have spied him on some of the NORAD Santa Tracking videos.
Happy Christmas everyone….
