We were blown away by the almost 70 comments posted on our Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve.
Thousands of people tracked Santa and the weather that lay ahead for him on his journey to New Zealand last Wednesday.
Below we’ve taken some of the most entertaining comments, mostly sent in by children, to weatherwatch.co.nz.
We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did!
Hi Santa please be careful when you come to new zealand because it is really wet here, you will need to land on the back lawn tonight because it is to slippery on the roof but please dont run over our new pool and watch out for the tramp.

We can’t wait – we are so excited. Tonight we saw one of your helpers who was giving out toys to kids.
We think you are great, travelling 1000s of miles in such bad weather to make little children like us happy.
God Bless You
Tom and Matt Wood
We are getting very excited about you coming tonight and we have got our Christmas lights on the deck so you can find our house easily. We have left you some carrots for the reindeer and some milk and delicious homemade gingerbread cookies for you.
We are going to bed now so we are asleep when you come.
Have a safe journey and give our love to all the children around the world.
The Glover Family
PS The carrots might be eaten, but blame it on our dog, “Tahoe”.
Merry Christmas ,

Hi Santa, You are the best in the world. Merry Christmas. Watch out for the swing and slide set as it is very wet in Auckland. If you like you can have a swing on the swing. I have been a good boy this year. My sister and I are going to leave cookies and beer for you and milk and carrots for the reindeers and some other goodies. Hugs and kisses Nicholas xxxxx
