Do you want to follow Santa as he makes his visits around the world on Christmas Eve?  Saint Nicholas has a busy night ahead, visiting all who have been naughty and nice across the globe.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command or NORAD will have their Official NORAD Tracks Santa website in operation again on December 24th. This will be the 65th year that NORAD will operate their Santa Tracker, showing near real-time progress of Santa as he makes his visits around the globe. The tracker begins operation early on Christmas Eve – Pacific Standard Time.

NORAD Tracks Santa also has a number of other resources available to follow St. Nick as he makes his rounds. They include:

Toll-Free Phone – 877-HI-NORAD

Email – noradtrackssanta@outlook.com

Mobile App – From your favorite app store

Social Media – Includes Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube

Kids, young and old, can follow Santa visit every home in every town around the world including the North Sound, on Christmas Eve. And the word from the North Pole is – Santa will be wearing a mask throughout his worldwide travels during his busy night. Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
