Track Santa

Have you ever tracked Santa? I have done it a few times..and this year will not be different. (You are never too old to believe!) This year instead of tracking Santa through the NORAD website, I will be tracking him on my cell phone.

NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) started tracking Santa in the late 1950's and has continued to do so every year since. They get calls and emails from children (and adults) from all over the world asking for Santa's whereabouts. The volunteers field those calls with the help of radar, satellites, Santa cams and even fighter jet pilots. They then relay this information to the public.

You can track the big man from the website above, or you can download the app to your phone (both iPhone and Android are available). At the time I wrote this post, this was the countdown:

I will be watching to see where he is...will you?


  1. I'm always asleep when he gets here so I've never met him but the presents are always under the tree. I don't know how he does it?
    Merry Christmas.

  2. I am usually in bed too. Brad is usually awake because of his schedule. He must know Santa! I will have to ask. :). Merry Christmas to you as well.

  3. Hopefully my child will be in a drug induced sleep by then
