One of my fondest memories of childhood is listening on the radio as the EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM would give regular radio updates during the Cold War Christmas Eves as NORAD would scramble the jets to investigate the stange blips on their radar of something coming from the North Pole at great speed towards the homeland.
Gather the little ones round the screen and enjoy the miracle of Santa Claus with them while you still can.
