Thanksgiving is over and the lights are up and perhaps you have even written a letter to Santa? Now it gets even more exciting.

it is is the 65th year children all over will be able to follow Santa's gift-giving trek around the world. He's still working with his helpers in the North Pole and won't hit the skies until Christmas Eve. But kids can keep busy with games, music and videos on the site.

This is truly exciting and sure beats most of the virtual meetings and conferences that all of us have had to struggle through. At our house, the boys are very excited that Christmas is coming and their lists to Santa grow with every single day! The big items for them is anything that is related to the movie "Cars" or "Toy Story."

Santa is going to be busy online this year. More and more locations have had to postpone their in-person meetings. Santa will be spending more time at home leading up to the big day. I wonder if that is cool with Mrs. Claus? If it is like most couple who are working from home, there are days that everyone needs a break and some time alone!
