Did You Know Santa Claus Has His Own Podcast?

Your kids will love this

In the days leading up to Christmas, it can be hard to get kids to focus on anything but one person: Santa Claus. Why not lean into the all-out obsession with the big guy by keeping your kids occupied with Santa’s Podcast?

This year’s podcast launched Dec. 1 and will feature daily episodes leading up to Christmas that answer all of your kids’ burning questions about Santa and Christmas, such as how Santa delivers toys to homes without chimneys, why the elves sometimes forget batteries that are needed for certain toys and why we hang stockings.

In addition to these fun facts about life at the North Pole, episodes also include a positive message for children about being kind and giving back to others. The podcast is free through Stitcher (which shares a parent company with Simplemost), Spotify and iTunes.

Listening to a podcast together is a wonderful screen-free entertainment option for the car or elsewhere. As kids only need to listen, it frees them up to do other activities while they enjoy it, such as helping you out with the holiday baking, doing a fun Christmas craft or wrapping up their presents for mom and dad.

Each episode is under 15 minutes, so you can listen to a few at a time or plan to tune in before bedtime throughout the month.

What a great idea! It totally reminds me of a modern-day spin on the “Little Orphan Annie” radio show that Ralphie loves in “A Christmas Story”:

Merry listening!
