This post is meant for kids who want to know where Santa Claus is right now and who want to track him online. If you are reading this post, I guess it’s that time of the year when Santa Claus will soon start traveling worldwide, distributing his gifts.
Santa Claus tracker websites
The NORAD Tracks Santa Web site is the newest version of a public relations program by NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, involving the countries of Canada and the United States.
Every year for over fifty years on Christmas Eve, NORAD has put out stories of how their robust tracking systems, such as the Distant Early Warning Line (DEW Line), had detected Santa Claus was leaving the North Pole to deliver his presents to children at North America, and in more recent years, around the world. Google Inc., in 2008, teamed up with Norad, the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The NORAD Santa Tracker website at noradsanta.org will show Santa Claus & his reindeer leaving the North Pole from the North Pole towards the whole world delivering presents. NORAD tracks Santa with Bing.
You can also track Santa on Twitter.
