Yep, it’s that time of year again. The guy in the big, red suit will make his rounds in just over two weeks, delighting both adults, students and children of all ages.
NORAD provides aerospace warning and control for North America 365 days a year. On Christmas Eve, they turn their attention to Santa, tracking his yearly gift-delivering journey from the North Pole. The Santa Tracker itself goes live at 6am EST on December 24th. In the meantime, you will find the unique history of the Santa Tracker, holiday-themed games (a new one released each day) and updates from the North Pole at www.noradsanta.org, the official NORAD Tracks Santa website.
NORAD began tracking Santa’s flight in 1955 when children started calling into a military phone number on Christmas Eve to find out where Santa was. Ten years ago, NORAD launched the website, which has evolved each year.
Check it out, and don’t forget to bookmark the site so you can come back often throughout the month. Be sure to visit on Christmas Eve to follow Santa as he makes his way toward your area. You can track him with Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Mobile, on Twitter and can also view videos of his flights over several landmark cities, captured by special “Santa cams.” Here are some highlights from last year’s Santa Tracker…
