Washington (CNN) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton kicked off her Christmas vacation Tuesday with some secret holiday diplomacy, the State Department said Friday.
On the way to her home in New York from Washington, Assistant Secretary PJ Crowley told reporters Clinton stopped at the North Pole "for an important bilateral meeting with a well-known international figure."
Crowley declined to say who the meeting was with, but a senior State Department official told CNN the tete-a-tete was with none other than the leader the North Pole himself, Santa Claus.
"During the meeting, in a formal de marche, sung to the tune of '12 Days of Christmas'...the secretary outlined her aspirations for the new year," Crowley said, citing "open and accountable governments, Middle East negotiations, more civilians in Afghanistan, empowerment of women, fewer nuclear weapons, respect for human rights, resolution of historic grievances, treaties through the United States Senate, six-party talks, dialogue with Iran, enough food for people of the world to eat, climate change legislation and, lastly, a championship for the Boston Red Sox."
Crowley confessed that Red Sox championship was his own Christmas wish, which he gave sitting on Santa's lap after the Clinton meeting.
She didn't depart Washington on a sleigh led by nine reindeer, but Clinton spread her own dose of Christmas spirit throughout the halls of Foggy Bottom before taking off, hosting no fewer than seven holiday parties at the State Department during the holiday season.

while “The Nigerian” put on some new tighty whiteys.
She might as well be talking to Santa because Barry sure as hell don’t listen to anything she says! LOL!
This is a joke, right?
Ooops! It’s Hillary, but would it really matter? :-)
I think you spelled “Santa” wrong ;-)
she probably dropped off Bill’s old underwear and asked Santa for a receipt
Why do I envision “Christmas at the Clintons” being more like Festivus? Can you even imagine the “airing of grievances”?
I guess brooms don’t ice up much....
