A: When children fall asleep

According to tradition, Santa Claus only stops by to deliver gifts after all the children in the home are sound asleep. This is certainly true in Kansas, which is why all children should be tucked away in bed fairly early on Christmas Eve, so Santa has time to make all his deliveries. 

Right now Santa is busy making his list, checking it twice and finding out who’s been naughty and nice. If you’ve been naughty, it might not be too late to get on Santa’s good side. Click here to make a contribution to your public radio station.

Make your pledge and the good elves at KPR will speak to Santa and put in a good word for you! : - )
