NORAD Santa Tracker 2011-2012: How to Track Santa Christmas Eve
NORAD will be providing their Santa Tracker for the 2011-2012 Christmas season!
There are a number of ways to track Santa (or Father Christmas) as he travels across the world on Christmas Eve delivering presents to all the girls and boys, but one of the most popular ways is to follow NORAD's Santa Tracker.
Launched on December 1, NORAD allows everyone to not only count down to Christmas Eve 2011, but also play games in the Kid's Countdown Village, where a new game will be provided every day until Christmas Day 2011.
Other ways to track Santa:
While the website may be the most popular way, there are other ways as well, especially if you are 'on the go'.
In addition, download the free NORAD Santa Tracker (called NORAD Tracks Santa) app on your iPhone and countdown the days till Santa's journey, follow him on Christmas Eve and play 'Elf Toss' to help Santa's elves deliver presents.
NORAD has been tracking Santa for more than 50 years, including its predecessor, Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD).
NORAD uses four systems to track Santa - radar, satellites, 'Santa cams' and fighter jets.
