It’s Christmas Eve, Santa Claus and his reindeer are already half way around the world. We are sure your little ones will want to know when he will arrive at your house.
Thankfully, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Santa Tracker is up and ready for the task. Find out (in real-time) where jolly old St. Nick is heading next, www.noradsanta.org.
NORAD has provided tracking capabilities since 1955. What started as a mission to monitor potential air threats to the U.S. and Canada has turned into the organization indulging every kid’s fantasy of Santa and his sleigh ride.
You can track Father Christmas’ ascent from the North Pole on NORADSanta.org, starting on Monday, December 24, as early as 2:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. There’s even a “livestream” video of Santa getting everything ready before departing his village.
Along with NORAD, Amazon Alexa users can ask for Santa’s location on December 24. OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their cars to find Santa. Google is also offering its vast GPS services, where users can track Santa live on Christmas Eve, both online and on Chromecast.
Keep in mind, however, there’s no exact science for the tracking, considering weather patterns change all the time.
