Official NORAD Santa Tracker

Santa can be tracked on the Official NORAD Santa Tracker! He is right now on his way around the world dropping off presents for kids and parents alike.

(and in our house, our four rotten cats!)

You can track his progress with the help of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) which you can find at the NoradSanta.org

As I am writing this post, Santa is in Tanzania

[learn_more caption=”How Norad Santa Got Started” state=”open”]NORAD started the tradition after a local store’s advertisement for kids to call Santa on a special “hotline” included a misprinted telephone number. Instead of reaching Mr. Kris Kringle, the number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.”

The Director of Operations, Colonel Harry Shoup, received the first “Santa” call and had his staff check radar data to see if there was any indication of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Indeed, there were signs of Santa, and children who called in were given an update on Santa’s position. Thus, the tradition was born. [/learn_more]

Have fun! This seems like a great Holiday Memory Tradition!

Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. This is one of my favorite things to do on Christmas Eve… We have a bunch of people in town who watch his progress and post it on our community forum. The funniest thing about our group is that most of us are adults with no children or children who are too old to believe anymore. HaHa
