Santa and has reindeer -- Rudolph included -- have set up shop in the 21st Century on the Internet from the North Pole.

Ahh, technology!

Channel 13's Hannah Saunders (who is really nice) talked to Jolly old Saint Nick on the WZZM Morning News yesterday.

WZZM 13 sent a crew to the North Pole Tuesday to check his progress.

"We're doing great!" Santa said. "We're in great shape to start loading up the sleigh for the big day!"

Santa also says there's an easy way you can check in on his progress any time you want. Visit for a 24/7 live stream of two of Santa's reindeer, a scrolling list of children on the "nice list," and special appearances from Santa.

The Reindeer Cam has been operating since 2011. This is the first year there is audio along with the live picture, meaning Santa can pass along "ho ho hos" and good tidings.

"We read letters to the kids and we do little crafts now and then," Santa said.

Hannah could be an elf herself. See Santa at 11 a.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. weekdays. And put your child on the nice list, too.

Way to go Santa!
