Since 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, 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.
