Tracking Santa

OK. it's getting close now, and pretty soon Santa will be starting his round the world trip.

NORAD have made their facilities available to allow you to track Santa's movements on his trip.

You will need to download a free application to allow Santa to be tracked via Google maps.

NORAD have been tracking Santa since 1955, when a Colorado Springs Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement encouraging children to call Santa gave the phone number for the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD - the predecessor to NORAD) Commander-in-Chief's operations hotline. CONAD provided updates to children who called and the practice has continued every since.

And we're off! Santa's on his way!
