Phil, Tinah, Waffle, Stella, Monkey, Billybob, Milly, Fin, Merimörkö, the little wallaby, Bella, of course the Tetris, and all their friends and families spent Christmas eve delivering presents at top speed. Maybe they did have a little of Joulupukki's magic....
After stopping by Korvatunturi to pick up more presents, Phil headed to the United States. Phil and Fin drove a semi-truck all over the country delivering presents to different store rooms. Upon returning, Jake's dad found it full of salmon jerky wrappers.
[Note: Emily had to finish a big project over the last two days, so Fin graciously drew today's. Thank you, Fin.]
After trekking all day, they found Phil's childhood friend Billybob, the snow leopard. While he can be elusive to find, he had a great cave for stashing all the presents for kids on the subcontinent. Phil was exhausted and relaxed after hauling presents. Milly just wanted to chase Billybob around the slopes.
They came up with a plan: as Phil didn't have Joulupukki's magic to travel everywhere in one night, over the next few weeks, Phil would fly the presents to different drop spots all over the world, where he would store the presents with his friends. His friends would help deliver all the presents on Christmas night.
Joulupukki, Joulupukin Vaimo, and Phil worked on a plan while eating korvapuustis and drinking coffee. A giant catapult to launch presents to kids? Using owls to deliver presents (Joulupukki has been reading Harry Potter while laid up)? The tontut wouldn't be much help, they're too small...
Phil and the tontut showed up with a birthday fish for Päivi. While they were drinking tea, and Phil was eating birthday fish (luckily, he never seems to notice that nobody else eats it), a letter arrived. It read: "Phil! Tule nopeasti! Joulupukki tarvitsee apuasi!" Päivi translated it for him "Phil! Come quick! Joulupukki needs your help!"
