How to stay online over Christmas without annoying your family

Last, but certainly not least, if you just can’t disconnect from the online world, here’s how to do it without incurring the wrath of your loved ones.


  1. Norad Tracks Santa is a favorite in our house. We live close to Norad command, and many of our friends work there. When the little ones started balking at going to bed Christmas Eve we pulled out the laptop and showed them Santa was already in Ohio and was making his way west. Worked like a charm!

    • Natalie,

      I love to hear stories like that – really good to know that belief in Santa is alive and well!

      Very interesting that you live near Norad…always makes me think of one of my favorite movies from my youth, “Wargames”!

      Thanks for visiting and leaving a holiday message!
