Don’t Forget to Track Santa with Norad

Did you know that you can actually track Santa’s flight path across the world on Christmas Eve? For over sixty years, NORAD, The North American Aerospace Defence Command, has been giving families around the world a super fun way to track Santa’s flight path on Christmas. At any time you can see where Santa is in the world and where he is going next, it is also a learning experience for all of you. I promise you will see towns and villages you never even know existed.

The website even plays Christmas songs. You don’t have to access a computer to track Santa, you can also download the mobile app which is what we will be doing… View Post

Hiding Christmas Presents

Christmastime is upon us, many of us are still busy with either shopping for gifts, wrapping present’s or sorting out the Christmas food. We are a mixture of all of those things in our house. I have shopped, I have wrapped – not everything and my husband has yet to do some shopping.

The problem we now face as I am sure many parents are the same is where to hide all these Christmas presents? As E and J are still young no questions have been asked regarding piled… View Post

Visiting Father Christmas at Wyevale Garden Centre Sidmouth

I love Christmas and the magic that comes with it, as I was growing up my parents made such an effort with the decorations and Christmas day was always amazing. The decorations are up in the Mum, That’s me household and it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. A couple of weekends ago we had our first visit to see Father Christmas at the Wyevale Garden Centre in Sidmouth ,we didn’t tell E we were going until we got there, she was so excited – this year the level of excitement has gone up a level. As soon as we walked into the Garden centre the Grotto was straight ahead, we had to wait a little while due to the change over in Santa’s Elf. The area leading up to the grotto was a little bit festive looking but not as much as I would have thought it would be. E enjoyed… View Post

At 4PM, 11PM, 2AM GMT on weekdays and 11PM at the weekend, you can watch the reindeer getting fed. If this doesn’t make you feel all warm, fuzzy and Christmassy, then I don’t know what will. Click here to head over to Reindeer Cam and watch Santa’s Reindeer The kids will just LOVE this, but a tip. It’s only FREE to watch on their website, and costs around £1.49 from mobiles/tablets via an app. The times aren’t very child friendly but since it’s in America, this can’t really be helped, so just catch those lovely magical reindeer being fed at 4pm.
