Christmas is less than 36 hours away. As usual and to repeat the past few years, Google has mentioned that they are offering a Santa tracking app.
Again however, NORAD (North American Air Defense Command) will also be tracking Santa on his most important flight of the year. For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. The Norad Santa Tracker has been around for a while. In fact, they've been tracking Santa's progress on Christmas Eve for many years! NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) tracks the big man in a red suit as he makes his merry rounds. There is a twist this year though; a pair of fighter jets as an escort.
Times have changed. Now, in addition to taking phone calls, NORAD shows Santa's location online at www.noradsanta.org There you can view a collection of video snippets from Santa's journey last year, play holiday games (a new one released each day), receive updates from Santa's Village.
Bookmark the site, so you can visit often. And be sure to come back on Christmas Eve. That's when NORAD actively tracks Santa's journey in its entirety, from take-off to touch-down. You'll be able to view his position on a Google Map, in your browser with the Google Earth plug-in, and on most phones."
