    GoogleEarth has a neat application for watching old St. Nick make his way around the globe.

    Yes- you have to download the kml file and then launch GoogleEarth. You have to have GoogleEarth installed, of course.

    A low-tech way to do this (next year) is to read Raymond Briggs’ _Father Christmas_. He, pulled by his two reindeer, delivers presents to ordinary houses, row houses, trailers and Buckingham Palace (“Oh, good, the flag’s flying. They’re in.”) It’s my favorite, especially with F.C. sitting in his easy chair looking at brochures for tropical vacations.
