Here’s a fun website for you and the kids. NORAD’s Santa tracker website is already online and ready for use 24 December 2011. This is a service NORAD has provided for more than 50 years.

“The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted the telephone number. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.” The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.”

On the site you’ll find lots of content including: videos, a kids countdown, info about Santa and NORAD, plus lots more content which comes online 24 December.

Join the experience at noradsanta.org as NORAD counts down to Santa’s takeoff.

Also, for up-to-the minute updates on Santa’s whereabouts on Dec. 24th, be sure to call the NORAD Tracks Santa Operations Center at 1-877-HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) to speak to an official Santa tracker.

Track with NORAD so you know when Santa’s going to arrive at your home!
