It's almost here: the most exciting night of the year for children of all ages as we await the arrival of Santa Claus and his reindeer!


This is our 17th year of providing comprehensive updates from the Santa Tracking Station as part of Big Joe Henry's Christmas Eve Spectacular on New Jersey 101.5 and

We will track Santa as he takes off  from his North Pole workshop and heads out all around the world until he reaches New Jersey. We'll post all the audio segments as they air so you can catch up no matter where you are.

Santa holds a special place in my heart    I look back fondly throughout my life and remember all of the wonderful times I've had with Santa Claus and all of the people in my life who made those experiences magical and so memorable.

In the words of my dad, who passed away a few years ago, "There will always be Santa Claus as long as there are good and caring people in the world."

Here's to all of those good and caring people who continue to make Santa possible here in New Jersey and throughout the world. Children are only young for a short time. It's our job to make great memories and make it special for them."

My very best wishes to you and your family for a very Merry Christmas!
