The spirit of the holiday season is upon us all, and now is the time that children around the world need to prepare for Santa Claus to come. Christmas Day is almost here, and everyone needs to know where the guy in red is at all times. Well, as of Monday, Dec. 23, 2013, multiple Santa Claus trackers are online and keeping you up to date on where he is.
If you're a parent and looking to get your child in bed and prepared for Santa Claus' arrival, use one of these Santa trackers below to keep up with where he is at all times. Be prepared for possible site outages as these sites are experiencing heavy traffic.
Let it be known that not all of these are active just yet. The Santa Claus trackers are online and ready to go, but they are waiting for Santa to actually begin his route.
- NORAD Tracks Santa - Not only does this site show where Santa Claus is up to the very second, but it also keeps track of the amount of gifts delivered, where he was last spotted, and where he is headed to next.
- Santa's Dashboard from Google - One of the newer Santa Claus trackers does all that others do, but it even calculates the full distance traveled by the big guy.
- iSpotSanta - This tracker may not be as in-depth as the other two, but it is really self-explanatory. The pin-drop map also helps the littler kids get a general idea of just where Santa may be.
- The Santa Tracker - Here is a site that does a lot to keep track of the man in red, but be warned that it has been crashing a lot today.
- MSNBC's Santa Tracker - Very simplistic and very much lacking in information as well. Use this one as a last resort.
- Kids.gov's Tracking Santa on Christmas - Essentially, this is a breakdown of how things may work to keep track of Santa Claus with satellites.
As the hours and minutes go on, more information, videos, and pinpoints show up on some of the trackers to let kids know where Santa Claus actually is and some of the things that he has done.
It's a great way to share quality time with the whole family and feel the joy to know that Santa Claus is on his way.
