Santa’s Christmas Message

Welcome to this podcast of Santa’s Christmas Message. Today I’ve braved the snowstorms of the North Pole to get a few words with Santa. He is just about to set out. In just 24 hours Santa travels the world giving out the presents made the Elves.

Remember to leave a mince pie out for Santa and a carrot for the reindeer. Don’t forget that Santa only delivers your presents once you’re deeply asleep …….

My thanks to Santa, his team of on train ‘helpers’, the Elves that he left at the North Pole and all the passengers on the trains. My thanks also go to the members of the team at the Watercress Line who make these podcasts possible.

For over 60 years NORAD has tracked Santa’s progress around the globe every Christmas Eve. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is one of the few organisations that has equipment capable of tracking a sleigh moving as fast as Santa’s. Every year they track his progress so that you can see when he is likely to arrive. To follow Santa’s progress click here.
