Santa’s making a list, checking it twice, finding out who’s naughty or nice…and oh yeah, he’s going digital. That’s right, Santa is on social media and he’s got some pretty sweet Facebook Live videos happening right now!

So if your kid is amped for Christmas and has always wondered what the North Pole looks like, he can mosey on over to Santa’s Facebook page and check out the snowy wonderland that the elves have been capturing on film.

There are more than two live streams happening, too (yep, Santa has not one, but TWO social media editors). Both videos are capturing a beautiful, wintery forest covered in snow. If you miss it by the time you check the page, don’t worry. All Facebook Live video are archived on the user’s page—that means your kid will be able to watch these on Santa’s page whenever she wants.

Santa’s efforts to go digital are definitely an excuse to get into the holiday spirit a little early—we’ve got our roundup of the best toys for the holidays over here. Now, who knows Santa’s Snapchat handle?
