Tánaiste Leo Varadkar reassures kids that Santa will visit Ireland this Christmas
Varadkar confirmed Santa is fully vaccinated.
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has reassured the children of Ireland that Santa will visit this year.
We could all use a little bit of good news and Varadkar's latest statement will cheer a lot of people up.
The current Covid news may be hard to process, but we can't let it take away the Christmas cheer.
He urged the children of Ireland not to worry. Varadkar confirmed that Santa will definitely be visiting Ireland this Christmas, no matter what.
Fianna Fáil TD for Cork South West Christopher O’Sullivan asked Varadkar to "reassure the children of Ireland that supply chain issue won’t affect Santa Claus and his team in Lapland".
He said, "Santa Claus, Mrs Claus, and his team of elves – they’re absolutely flat out in their workshop in Lapland trying to make toys for the children of Ireland."
O'Sullivan highlighted the current supply chain issues, but Varadkar said it is under control.
"I want to give assurance to the family and children of Ireland that this matter is in hand.
Santa is fully vaccinated as is Mrs. Claus and their helpers in the North Pole.
But what about the current travel rules? Luckily, the measures don't apply to Father Christmas.
He is an essential worker after all.
Thankfully, Santa and his reindeer will be "exempt from any travel restrictions that will be imposed between now and then".
"My Department, the Department of Trade will leave no stone unturned," he shared.
Varadkar said they will "do absolutely everything we can to make sure there’s no disruption to supply chains".
He said he will make sure there are no issues that could disrupt the delivery of presents.
With just 22 days to go, there's no doubt this message will make lots of kids feel better.
Let the countdown to Christmas begin.
