My favorite part of Christmas Eve was when I used to play with a toy firetruck with my cousin and we would play in the same room my dog, Max resided. It was fun even though I never really cared for toy cars. We no longer do this however, the last time we did was 2007.
I also love NORAD Tracks Santa. Fun too see where Santa's been and the trailer is cool and dramatic. I also like the commentary. One time I watched it and there was a blue kickball in the bag. When I woke up on Christmas there was a blue kickball under the tree. :)
