Santa Claus is embarking on his annual trip around the world-and he's invited you to get a behind-the-scenes peak at his preparations.

On Christmas Eve, from noon to 1 p.m. EST, Mrs. Claus will host this exclusive Scribble Chat to share insight into how the Big Guy gets ready for the Big Night. Santa himself will be in touch throughout the hour to let us know how he and the reindeer are doing as well as answer your questions.

In addition to this live, interactive component with Santa, this event will also feature an overview of how Christmas and the holidays are celebrated around the world.

We'll be gathering user-generated content around holiday celebrations as well as user-generated questions to Santa. Comments, photos and video can be submitted to
