Santa Claus has died along with at least 115 elves. He and the elves were killed in a tragic occurrence in which melting ice, in the North Pole sparked an avalanche, engulfing Santa’s workshop, killing Santa and the elves immediately upon impact. The melting ice was caused by climate change. For decades warnings have been issued regarding melting ice in the North Pole, yet no one took action. Santa is survived by his wife, Mrs. Claus, and 8 reindeer. Mrs. Claus asks for privacy at this difficult time and urges parents to encourage eco friendly choices with children. Mrs. Claus hopes future environmental tragedies may be averted. Santa was 1,748 years old.
