Does Santa deliver to households where everyone is awake all night long? Mostly no. Not unless you’ve previously met him, or have been granted the honor to observe Saint Nicholas in action. He hasn’t the time to say hi to everyone, and for his own safety he likes to see that all lifeforms in a home are asleep. Although he generally makes an exception for pets such as dogs, and cats. There are nefarious figures who may try to sabotage Santa in some way, and he’d rather see a home full of slumber. As a half-angel one of his powers is to distantly detect the state of various life forces including human. If you’re an innocent child able to trick Santa into thinking you’re asleep thereby catching him delivering gifts then he will be impressed with you, and stop to say hello. In some cases he will keep you on a list of potential helpers to come work at the North Pole someday. Some supernatural beings he delivers to have the power to fool him, and it becomes kind of a game to see who can win each year. Santa always enjoys a friendly rivalry but don’t try to interfere in his deliveries!. He’ll usually whiz around at super speed, and say something like,”You got me!” before flying up the chimney.
Ultimately out of respect for Santa Claus you should be in bed as early as possible on Christmas Eve. Not only do you want to get up at the crack of dawn to rip open your gifts but you also want to be asleep during the night of the most enchanting dreams courtesy of Santa Claus. His Angelic powers via the Spirit Of Christmas deliver dreams of sugar plum fairies, all things Christmas, and a world of magical delights to anyone willing to receive them. Many are even treated to an astral projected journey to the real North Pole City! It’s said to be the most peaceful night of sleep during the entire year. So odds are good he will skip your house if you refuse to go to sleep, and it may jeopardize future Christmas gifts. It’s simply best to slumber, and gift thanks for your gifts the next day. Just to be safe be in bed, and sound asleep by 11:55 PM Christmas Eve, and don’t wake up any earlier than 4:00 AM Christmas Day. That being said it’s plausible he could flash into your home the second you’re not watching the Christmas tree. You may turn away one second, and turn back to see the gift there!
