Alexa, the smart voice assistant that lives on the Fire TV, Fire TV Stick and Echo, has a new feature that enables several Christmas-themed questions and answers. On Christmas Eve, you’ll even be able to ask Alexa exactly where Santa is using the built-in Santa Helper tracker.

Pargee, the team behind the “Santa’s Helper” third-party Alexa plug-in, sent over a few of the new queries you can ask Alexa, including:

  • “Alexa, ask Santa ‘Where are you?’”
  • “Alexa, ask Santa if I’m on the nice list.”
  • “Alexa, ask Santa for a Christmas fact.”
  • “Alexa, ask Santa to read ‘The Night Before Christmas’.”
  • “Alexa, who stole Christmas?”
  • “Alexa, is it going to be a white Christmas?”
  • “Alexa, do you like Christmas?”
  • “Alexa, do you believe in Santa?”

You’ll need to open the Alexa app, open “Skills” and then activate the “Santa Helper” skill before the feature works, but it’s a lot of fun once it does.
