Santa Claus is a character most young people know as the single most influential gift-giver in the world. Will I get a gift this year? If you've been good all year, and your mother doesn't tell Santa the little white lies you've told throughout the year, there is a very good chance he'll visit your house, along with every other household with children in the world. When will he arrive? It depends on where you are in the world. The countdown to Christmas differs in each time zone: a location 4 hours ahead will have Santa arriving 4 hours ahead of you. That gives you 4 more hours to be on your best behavior...

There are many online countdowns that children and adults both can track his location, and also see a live countdown of how many days before Christmas. It's fun for kids to check online to see an actual countdown, broken down by month, day, hours, and seconds until the big man in red comes down the chimney. Here are several favorites and popular Santa counters below.
