Whichever way you look at it, Christmas Eve is a very busy night for Santa. However, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure Father Christmas and his reindeers don’t miss your house, apartment or townhouse this Christmas.
For starters, organise the kids to create some amusing signs and placards that will ensure the Santa convoy doesn’t miss your home. A ‘Santa Stop here’ sign will ensure the jolly man in the red suit delivers his gifts on time. Moreover, the signals are constant reminder to the children that Santa isn’t far away – and that his “naughty or nice” rule will dictate who will, or won’t, take delivery of some prized gifts this year.
Santa delivers presents to billions of boys and girls all over the world in a single night, which can make finding every home quite complicated! Fortunately, in Rudolph’s red nose, Santa has his very own Google Maps, however even the old reindeer needs some directions occasionally. And this is where plenty of Christmas lighting can be useful. The right festive lighting can illuminate your roof or garden just like a landing strip to help Santa and the reindeers arrive safely at your home.
Also, don’t fret if you live in a home, which doesn’t have a chimney. Santa will find a way into your home. That said, if you do have a chimney, Christmas is a great time to clean it out. If you used a wood fire in winter, then you should arrange to have the chimney swept at least once a year to ensure it isn’t choked with soot. For gas fires, make sure the flue outlet isn’t blocked or obstructed as this can prevent dangerous carbon monoxide from escaping your home. Depending on where you live, expect to pay $250 for a professional sweep of a chimney, and you can be guaranteed Santa will be very grateful for your investment when he arrives at your home on Christmas Eve.
