Because I'm up and am finding that Turkey a bit hard to digest, or was it the Ham? Anyways tummy is rumbling away, so I researched it, tha Santa travel route!!
And I found a NORAD site that states:-
"Santa usually starts at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean and travels west. So, historically, Santa visits the South Pacific first, then New Zealand and Australia. After that, he shoots up to Japan, over to Asia, across to Africa, then onto Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central and South America. But keep in mind, Santa�s route can be affected by weather, so it�s really unpredictable. NORAD coordinates with Santa�s Elf launch staff to confirm his launch time, but from that point on, Santa calls the shots. We just track him!"
So there you are, official confirmation from a US Gov agency.
But hope you're all having a fun and happy Christmas
