Notes about the Christmas Countdown (Santa's Clock)

**Note:  Fixed times are calculated from Saint Nick's computer, which is on Santa Central Time (on the International Date Line, which runs through Christmas Island btw!), so it may differ from your timer.  The fixed times aren't necessarily for December 25th's arrival where you live.  The Countdown ticker timer clock shows that.  The fixed times show how long it is until the first time zone on the planet reaches December 25th. 

If the time in the countdown ticker seems off, please check your computer's date and time settings and see the paragraph above.
