The NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) is tracking Santa’s route around the world.

You can watch it too on www.noradsanta.org starting Christmas Eve.

The website also has games and activities, videos, music and more.

The official NORAD Tracks Santa app is also available in the Windows, Apple and Android stores. Tracking opportunities are also offered on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+.

Santa followers just need to type “@noradsanta” into each social media site to get started.


Starting Christmas Eve, website visitors can watch Santa make preparations for his flight through the Bing maps and Cesium technology to track Santa with NORAD in 2D and 3D.

Beginning at 5 a.m. Tuesday, trackers can speak with a live phone operator to ask about Santa’s whereabouts by dialing the toll-free number 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) or by sending an email to noradtracks santa@outlook­.com.

NORAD Tracks Santa started in 1955 when a local media advertisement directed children to call Santa direct – only the number was misprinted. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone rang through to the Crew Commander on duty at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center.

Thus began the tradition which NORAD carried on since it was created in 1958.
