Track Santa as he comes to Sandy Springs

santa heading to sandy springs

Big news. It appears that Santa is well under way in his annual quest to deliver toys to all you good boys and girls. So it may be time to get the cookies and milk ready and get the kids tucked into their beds for the night. Santa is on his way to the Sandy Springs area, so be ready. Santa has most recently been seen in France, no doubt taking a short break to do a wine tasting.

If you’re one of those people who have actually lit a fire in their fireplace in this warm weather, make sure you put it out before Santa arrives. He never likes it when his britches get singed.

Also, if you want to keep up to date on Santa’s progress, click here for the Santa Tracker.

And as an added bonus, you can now track Santa on your iPhone or Android phone. There’s an app for that!

Happy Holidays from the team here at AllAboutSandySprings.com.
