Santa Claus’ whereabouts is known to those who follow NORAD’s Santa Tracker, according to a Huffington Post report on Monday night. Kids – and kids-at-heart - will have the opportunity to track where Santa Claus is starting at 3 a.m. CT.
Track Santa Claus as he globe-trots around the world, going chimney-to-chimney to deliver Christmas gifts. Children’s questions about Santa’s location can be answered by volunteers who man the phones at NORAD’s Santa Tracker as well by calling 1-877-HI-NORAD or 1-877-446-6723. This might be the only alternative for persons electrically-affected by the ice storms hitting different locales on Christmas Eve this year.
Additionally, Google is presenting its own Santa-tracking device this year. All one needs to do to follow Santa Claus’ globetrotting on Google is to type the word “Santa” into Google Maps. Reportedly, the Google version will be powered by the latest NORAD updates culled from radar, satellite, and fighter jet data.
NORAD, which is a joint effort of the United States and Canadian military, is a popular tradition that dates back some 58 years to 1955.
Please spend time talking to your youngsters about the true meaning of Christmas as well. Merry Christmas! Happy Birthday, Jesus!
