Many people underestimate ole’ St. Nick, claiming his sleigh and reindeer can't possibly make it to every child’s house on magic alone. By no means am I discrediting the Christmas magic of Santa Clause, but in this day and age, Santa has stepped up his game enlisting modern technology to make his big night a success.

Here are some quick Santa stats courtesy of ABC News.

  • Santa visits approximately 132 million homes in one night across 24 time zones.

  • Santa actually has 31 hours to carry out his single night's duties due to the time change between time zones.

  • Even with that much time, he still has to visit about 1,200 homes per second to make all of his stops!

You have to admit, this sounds like a pretty daunting task.

What’s even cooler though is that you can watch Santa do this live across the globe! Just visit google.com/santatracker or noradsanta.org. These websites will show Santa as he visits houses throughout every time zone.
