Now it is getting exciting: right now, this very minute, it is close to being Christmas Eve day in Sector 1.

Sector 1 covers the countries of New Zealand, Australia, Samoa, Vanuatu, the Marshall Islands, Tonga, the Soloman Islands and other island nations of the sea in the South Pacific. It also covers the Philippines, Japan, and parts of China and up the Siberian coast. It is a very, very large sector.

This is where Christmas starts and with it comes our annual Tracking Santa show on Kringle Radio.

In about an hour that broadcast begins and really it takes over the news from this point forward.

For many of us, the best hours of the year are now upon us.
