Where i am sat on the South Coast of the UK, it has just turned 24th December, Christmas Eve.
Due to the time difference in parts of the World, when i wake up in around 8 hours time, Santa will have left the and will have already began leaving presents for good children.
Santa usually starts at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean and travels west. So, historically, Santa visits the South Pacific first, then New Zealand and Australia. After that, he shoots up to Japan, over to Asia, across to Africa, then onto Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central and South America. But keep in mind, Santa’s route can be affected by weather and here in the UK Santa usually arrives between 9:00 p.m. and midnight on Christmas Eve but we have had some very wild weather today and the man on the BBC weather predict it will carry on tomorrow so it’s really unpredictable but we do know that Santa only arrives when children are asleep. And remember, he knows when you are sleeping, he knows when your awake!
In most countries, it seems Santa arrives between 9:00 p.m. and midnight on Christmas Eve. If children are still awake when Santa arrives, he moves on to other houses but he does return later but only when he is sure that the children are asleep!
As usual the people at NORAD will be tracking Santa so i'm going to bed now and when i wake up in the morning and am tucking into my cereal, Santa will already have began.
