Keep the kids calm with the NORAD Santa Tracker

Learn how to use Google's Santa Tracker and games ahead of Christmas Day

Marine Col. Bob Brodie of the 601st Air Operations Center said fighter jets will "fly along (Santa's) wing" in a "close escort", and that the center will "monitor him with our satellites and even have infrared trackers to follow Rudolph". Authorities have cleared Santa Claus for take-off for his around the globe flight and all the good little boys and girls in Holmdel and Colts Neck can expect a visit on Christmas Eve. Bing and Cortana users can also find Santa's location.

Google's own tracker offers children a very similar experience, but also with the advantage of an advent calendar which opens a new game or experience to try every day in December. It went on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in 2008.

But Santa's journey doesn't just happen.

As of noon on the east coast of the United States, Santa had visited large chunks of Asia and the entirety of Australia, according to the site, delivering almost two billion gifts along the way.




NORAD's "Santa Cams" will stream videos as Santa makes his way over various locations.

- Celebrate the final countdown to Christmas 2017 by following Santa's journey around the world on the North American Aerospace Defense Command's Santa Tracker.

A department store advert posted in the Colorado Springs newspaper had provided a phone number where children could call up Santa.

Instead of a phone number for children to call Santa, the ad gave the hotline number for the Commander in Chief of Continental Air Defense Command, the predecessor of NORAD.
