Kids’ Countdown Village

Children and adults alike often wonder how one man can deliver toys to all the world’s girls and boys. Here’s your answer…..

Santa maintains a long list of children who have been good throughout the year. His list gets bigger each year by virtue of the world’s increasing population.

As a result, Santa has had to deliver more toys in the same amount of time. If one were to assume he works in the realm of standard time, he would have to limit his stay to about two to three ten-thousandths of a second per home!

The fact that Santa Claus is more than 16 centuries old, yet does not appear to age, is our biggest clue that he does not work within time as we know it. His trip may seem to take around 24 hours, but to Santa it may last days, weeks or even months in standard time.

Santa would not want to rush the important job of distributing presents to children and spreading Christmas happiness to everyone, so the only logical conclusion is that Santa functions within a different time-space continuum than the rest of us do.

Sounds logical to me!

This year you can track Santa via your mobile phone! On December 24th, search for “Santa” on Google Maps for mobile to see his latest location.

Santa Cams are ultra-cool, high-tech, high-speed digital cameras pre-positioned at many locations around the world only on December 24th. The cameras capture images and videos of Santa and his reindeer as they make their journey around the world.
