Coming On Christmas Eve: The Santa Tracker

Santa Claus

The Santa Tracker also allows you to now ask a Google Pixel or Google Home device where's Santa to get updates on his location.

The trackers are now live and offer their own unique features to keep kids entertained in the run up to Christmas.

There are just a few days left until Christmas which means The North American Aerospace Defense Command is ready to start tracking Santa's yuletide journey around the world.

I beg you not to publish any more combinations of bridge/tunnel debate and Santa Claus.

The clever Norad app brings a precise Global Positioning System location of Santa's progress and will show you exactly where the jolly fellow is.

NORAD works with a variety of partners to support the tracker, including Microsoft and telephone-system company Avaya.

Both the app and website are packed full of games, videos and activities which should help to stop the kids asking, "how much longer 'til Christmas day?" At 6 a.m. E.S.T, children and parents can call the NORAD operations floor at 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Today, the program coordinates with more than 70 corporate military partners, and 1,500 volunteers take calls on Christmas Eve.

Since 1955, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa's flight. For any children reading this, no, Santa Claus does not bring grown-ups very large items used to carry cars and trucks over or through bodies of water.

That year, a Colorado Springs, Colorado Sears & Roebuck Store published an ad with Santa's phone number, where children could call and speak to him directly.
