Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, is finally here, and children are asking, "Where is Santa Claus right now?" Thanks to NORAD Santa Tracker, their interactive maps and social media can show a child exactly where Santa is. According to Huffington Post, Tuesday, Dec. 24, Santa was already on his way dropping off presents and was headed for America! Santa is scheduled to drop presents off in the United States shortly after midnight early Christmas morning.

San Jose Mercury News also reported on Tuesday, that NORAD’s interactive Santa Tracker went live and started tracking Santa at 7 a.m. Eastern Time on Christmas Eve morning. Telephone lines opened up so that volunteers can answer questions from children that are wondering where Santa is and when they can expect him at their house. Interestingly, Michelle Obama even got into the holiday spirit by manning the phone lines Tuesday night at North American Aerospace Defense Command.

Children can also call in to request Santa’s location with a live agent on Christmas Eve at 1-877-HI-NORAD or 1-877-446-6723.
