Santa Claus is coming to town – and you can find out exactly where he is.
If you’re hoping for a special visit from the festive guy in the red suit (and his trusty reindeer), be sure to use a Santa tracker.
How to track down Santa Claus this Christmas
It’s not easy to cover 195 countries in such a short time.
You should sleep when Santa finally pays a Christmas visit – of course only if you’ve been good.
But if you want to keep track of where he is, luckily the magic of technology will help you.
There are a number of trackers that keep track of Santa’s every move. So why not see where he is right now?
Google Santa Tracker Live
Google operates an annual Santa tracker utilizing its Google Maps technology.
The tech giant first launched it in 2004 and has improved it every year since.
You can follow either on a computer by visiting santatracker.google.com or you can download the free app.
Along the way, Google shows cool details like the route Santa has already traveled and the number of presents he’s delivered.
You can also see their next stop and how long it will take them to reach you.
Norad Santa Tracker
Norad – the North American Aerospace Defense Command – is also keeping an eye on Santa Claus.
They’ve been doing this for a long time, starting in 1955.
Apparently it all started by accident when a child accidentally called CONAD (Norad’s predecessor)’s unlisted phone number after seeing an ad in a newspaper encouraging children to call Santa Claus.
The boss at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, reportedly picked up the phone and told staff to check the radar for signs that Santa Claus was heading south from the North Pole.
And so it has continued ever since.
A special website will show you exactly where Santa Claus is as he zooms around the world from country to country noradsanta.org.
