Let's face it we are all super excited about Santa's annual visit on Christmas Eve.  I know my kids get super excited about Christmas Eve.  They get so excited they don't want to go to bed.  So it's great to have a way to track Santa so they know when to go to sleep.   Santa will be visiting over 5,500 houses per minute on Christmas Eve so he has to be ready and once he takes off with the reindeer on Christmas Eve you can keep track of him.
