WFMW — Where’s Santa? NORAD Tracks Jolly Fellow

Posted by infinitygoods on December 11, 2007

wfmwbluebanner.jpgSince 1955, the United States government has been tracking Santa’s progress around the globe on Christmas Eve as the Jolly Fellow delivers presents to all the good boys and girls of the world. Today,footer_norad_logo.jpg the Canadian and the United States governments use the bi-national air defense command for the North American continent called the North American Air Defense Command, known as NORAD, to track Santa’s movements.

You can help your children or grandchildren track Santa’s whereabouts by going to NORAD’s website, where Petersen Air Force Base in Colorado uses the latest military technology. There you will also be able to find out how and why NORAD tracks Santa. The history and technology will be quite interesting to children and adults alike.

There is a countdown to Christmas games, and starting at 2 a.m. Mountain Time on Christmas Eve, you can even see Santa and the Reindeers using the Santa Cams. It is a multilingual website with sound, music, photos, three-dimensional graphics and maps.

  1. Great tip! We did this a couple of times–but now that my son has seen that Santa has taken up residence in our local mall he’d probably argue with me that Santa is sitting by JC Penney’s!

    SAHMmy: If your son tells you that, you can remind him that the Santas with the fake beards and bad costumes (sometimes even obviously women!) who are at the mall are Santa’s many helpers who fill in for him because Advent/Christmas is his busiest season of the year and he can’t possibly be at every single mall all around the entire world. Besides, you can’t argue with the United States government. If the U.S. government says that Santa exists and can track him for the full 24 hours while he makes his deliveries, then Virginia, there is indeed a Santa Claus!

    I know a little eight year old boy that just got a letter from Santa Claus on Tuesday. I am going to give his mom the “Track Santa” website. He will be so thrilled as he was with his Letter from Santa.
