The holidays are never easy, but they are fun.
This special above-the-fold humor article, about the pesky ordinances Santa faces when he delivers presents in Palm Beach, ran on Christmas Eve day, 2009. 
Santa flies into town.
Unfortunately, Palm Beach International Airport is situated right in the middle of town. Santa can't help but disrupt air traffic.
With all the sleigh bells, the neighbors call in a noise complaint. It's the number one late night passtime in Palm Beach.
 Santa has to be careful not to trip any silent alarms in very security conscious Palm Beach mansions.
Meanwhile, Animal Control has their own ideas about eight tiny reindeer. There is an ordinance against farm animals in Palm Beach.
Of course, the ever-present feral cats of Palm Beach find this hilarious.
Santa manages to get a temporary special reindeer exception, but is admonished to make sure and clean up after his pets.
