When Santa is first ready to take off, Nigel tells him to start his flight in New Zealand, in the easternmost time zones, and work his way west as the time zones progress. That notion is discarded for the rest of the movie as Santa spends Christmas Eve in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nigel, Santa and the Foxes work on the premise that they have to get everything ready for Santa by midnight Central Standard Time (in Milwaukee), while Christmas Day is already almost over in places like New Zealand.

Now that I have said how I feel about it I must warn that most people will not like this movie. It is too cliché, too predictable, and maybe too slow. But it is unique in the fact that this is the only Santa show I know that Santa doesn't know he is Santa.
So why do I like it? I don't really know but Christmas before last was when I first saw it and it seems to have just the right homey touches and surprises. It won't win academy awards but it will be suitable for small children or children at heart. I especially liked the bag and its travels. I don't know why but I missed this movie last year. I am getting it several times this year and it is like an old soft shoe. I like it just as much as Kelsey Grammar's A Christmas Carol (The Musical) and Tom Hanks The Polar Express. Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without these movies and the wonderful music the school choirs sing.
