Santa Naughty In New York?

Fall-out continues from a video released on YouTube early Christmas morning. Posted claiming to be security footage, the clip shows someone entering the private elevator at the Beaux Arms, an exclusive NYC apartment building. The extremely poor quality doesn’t allow positive identification, but it appears to be someone dressed as Santa Claus. The poster claims it is Santa Claus. The time-stamp is 12.25.2013 00:05.

The elevator goes to the apartment of Shelley Kopec, ex-wife of noted Russian financier Ivan Kopec. Ms. Kopec, a 26-year-old former beauty queen, is well-known in prominent social circles for her skill at charming older men into donating to her favorite causes. Was Santa going to reward her for her good work? Or had he fallen victim to her charms and was hoping for a present of his own?

The obvious question is how Santa would have time on Christmas Eve to take a break for anything. A little-known practice is for Santa to train new elves on gift delivery in places like Manhattan. There are few chimneys, so presents have to arrive through the elevator shafts. New York City is one of the few places this type of training may not attract too much attention. Santa may have been able to delegate enough of the work to have a few free minutes.

Santa’s Workshop closes down for the year after the sleigh takes off, so the website and phone lines were out of service before the news hit. Santa’s Twitter and Facebook accounts have been closed and his phone goes directly to voicemail. I have not been able to find anyone up here who will speak about what is going on. Santa’s spokesperson, Suzy Snowflake-Frost, is on vacation in the South Pacific while her husband Jack is working overtime during his busiest season.

Wanda Winters, an anchor at NPTV, had an interview with a hidden guest. She spoke with someone alleging to be one of the elves on the flight this year. The voice was masked so I couldn’t tell if it was really an elf or some kind of trick. The “elf” said that they had received strict instructions that Santa had a special errand for a very good little girl in Manhattan that no one was to know about. All he knew about it was that Santa seemed especially jolly when they took off for Pennsylvania.

While it is true that Christmas Eve is the only time Santa can get away from Mrs. Claus, I can’t believe he used his time to do anything other than deliver toys. I’ve known him for years, and he has never shown anything but devotion. On the other hand, while the cat’s away…..
