It’s that time! As Santa gets ready to to lift off, delivering goodies to all the good little boys and girls, NORAD is ready to track his progress and bring him down if he mistakenly leaves a lump of coal in the wrong stocking (like mine), and this year is no different. Once again NORAD will receive some help from Google, which will also help you figure out where Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick is and if it’s time to get to bed.
Google and NORAD have provided the kids with a number of ways to see where he is at:
- Google Maps: Head to Google Maps, and search for “Santa NORAD”
- Google Earth: Visit NORADSanta.org and click on “Track Santa In Google Earth”
- On your mobile: m.noradsanta.org
- Twitter: @noradsanta
- And of course you can visit Santa’s YouTube Channel
The tradition of stalking Santa started way back in 1955 when Sears had a misprint in their catalogue that sent callers looking for the Santa hotline to NORAD instead.
With that said, we’ll take this as my signing off until Sunday. This one man train is ready for a few days off. Happy holidays, my fellow Phandroidians; keep your cocoa, and coconuts, warm and stay safe out there!
