Go to NORAD Santa Tracking Site This Christmas Eve

"For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s Christmas Eve flight.

The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted the telephone number. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations "hotline." The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born." - Copied from the NORAD website page "Why we track Santa."

There are some files that you need to download to your computer, so go to the NORAD Santa tracking link now and you will be able to track Santa on Christmas Eve. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world as the NORAD Santa tracking site tracks him through all 24 time zones. Check to see where he has been, when he will be arriving and where he will be going next.
