According to the owners of Forbes Storage in North Pole, Alaska, Santa rented a self-storage unit at their facility on December 10 to store extra toys until Christmas Eve. Forbes owners Buzz Otis and Renee Webb Otis say that a man going by the name of Kris Kringle appeared at their facility after hours and used their Insomniac kiosk to rent a self-storage unit. They have posted a copy of Kringle's rental agreement, which is signed "Santa Claus," online. The rental agreement includes an off-season address in Anaheim, California, along with home, work, and cell phone numbers for Santa, in case self storage operators need to reach Santa after the holiday season.

"You can imagine our excitement when we reviewed our INSOMNIAC reports and saw Santa had rented a unit using our kiosk," Buzz commented. "It feels good to know we were able to help him when he needed it most." [More]
