If you believe NORAD's Santa Tracker, which follows Kris Kringle's progress on his Christmas sleigh ride around the world, then you'd be thinking about the fact that he's supposedly in Wulumuqi, China, "1,400 miles from any coastline - no city in the world is farther from water."
Then we'd please like the North American Aerospace Defense Command to explain why, even yet today, ol' Saint Nick is still to be caught dilly-dallying at various stores all around the city, including occasionally taking some breathers out front of the holiday windows at Lord & Taylor. If, at this point on Christmas Eve, you've slacked off in getting a holiday portrait taken, or you've just gotten the urge to go for one, may we suggest either tracking down such a Santa with a real beard...or there's always the Marc Jacobs Bleecker Street window display/photo shoot.
