It doesn’t seem that long ago when families were tuning into their local radio stations to track Santa on Christmas Eve, or when children ran to the mailbox to see if he replied to their letter.

Now, with just the tap of an app, families are enjoying these Christmas traditions on a whole new, more personalized level.

Here’s a few family-friendly Christmas apps to spread some holiday cheer and entertain the kids while you enjoy your eggnog in peace.
