# How long does it take for Santa to deliver his gifts?

The sun is just setting on the 24th east of the date line twenty-four hours later. But there are another 12 hours till the night is done here, for a total of 36 hours. However, in certain regions of the world, Santa brings gifts on different days, such as December 6th. This video explains how far away from the north pole he must be to make two trips within one day.

The distance between the north pole and south pole is about 8,000 miles (13,000 km). To cover this distance in one trip would take about eight months at average speed. But since Santa travels faster than light, he could do it in less than five days.

Santa's route takes him near the borders of Canada and Mexico, so he probably visits both countries. He also goes through the arctic and antarctic circles, so he must pass through Europe too. However, because these are remote areas not many people live there, so most likely Santa comes alone.

He starts out at the exact same time every year with the mid-November sunset, driving all night until dawn breaks over the south pole. Then he stops to sleep for a few hours before starting back up again and driving all day until the next sunset. He repeats this cycle forever!

Since the sun is always set when he sleeps, Santa must use artificial lights in Antarctica.

## What time does Santa arrive?

## Why does Santa have more than 24 hours?

In a nutshell, Google Maps and stardust propulsion. The lengthy explanation is that Santa has more than 24 hours because of the earth's tilt and all the time zonesâ€”when New Yorkers are putting out the cookies, children in Australia have already opened all of their parcels. Santa also has a lot of help from his elves who do all of the work while he visits the whole world in one night.

Santa's powers are based on physics. His ability to fly in the sleigh and travel at high speeds is possible because he's jolly old him self which means he has huge muscles and strong bones, allowing him to lift heavy loads without damage. He also uses state-of-the-art technology to deliver gifts in less than 24 hours because he wants to give everyone a chance at winning something special. And let's not forget about the elves! They use their magic skills to make toys and items for gifts that humans can't make or buy. Elves are very powerful beings that live hundreds of years, they can be found working with humans at toy companies or saving forests around the world as nature creatures.

Santa's job is very stressful too. He spends most of his time traveling around the world in one night trying to stop bad guys from ruining Christmas for good people, while still finding time to visit all of the kids in your list. If he doesn't stop them, they might get something else for Christmas like coal instead of presents or even death.

## Does Santa come on the 24th or the 25th?

Christmas Eve is December 24th. Santa, according to legend, pays a visit on Christmas Eve. As a result, Santa arrives on the night of December 24th. He/she can also arrive on the morning of December 24th if you are one of the lucky ones who sleep in on Christmas Day.

There are two types of people who might call themselves "Santa Claus believers": children and adults playing at being kids at holiday parties. The idea of Santa making visits during the day is so unusual that it's hard for many people to accept.

The first thing to understand about Santa is that he/she has no gender. Although most often referred to as "he", "his", and "him", Santa represents an ideal type rather than a specific person. In fact, there is no single individual who embodies Santa for all children worldwide. Rather, Santa is a concept used by parents to encourage good behavior and provide hope for a prosperous New Year.

Every year, on the evening of December 24th, children all over the world wake up excited to see what gifts they will get from Santa. But only those children who have been good all year long will receive presents. The others will be asleep when Santa comes down the chimney!

## How long does it take for Santa to travel around the world?

According to Google's Santa Tracker website, "On December 24th, Santa's Village changes into a tracking experience where you can follow Santa and his reindeer as they distribute presents to youngsters throughout the world."

## What time does Santa arrive in Colorado?

Between 9 p.m. and 12 a.m. As of now, Santa is expected to arrive in Colorado between 9 p.m. and midnight. NORAD has made it its job to follow Santa Claus on his route since 1955. Since then, they have been able to determine his exact arrival time every year.

Santa first came to Colorado in 1993 when he landed at Denver International Airport. He has returned to the state each year since then except for 2004 when he missed the trip due to health issues.

Each year, Santa visits several cities across Colorado including Aurora, Boulder, Castle Rock, Glenwood Springs, Lake City, Longmont, Monument, Nederland, Parker, Rifle, Sterling, Thornton, and Woodland Park.

He usually stops at children's hospitals, police stations, and military bases along the way too! Although he doesn't actually spend the night in any one place, just sees some of the local sights.

In addition to visiting with kids in person, Santa also sends letters to good girls and boys all over the world who have asked for him to come to their town. If you write such a letter, make sure you include your name, address, and what you want for yourself or another person. Then put your letter under the tree until Christmas Eve.

His mother was a flower arranger and she always made sure that there were flowers in every room of the house. She taught him how to grow them too, so he never had to buy them at the store whenever she went on a date.
