Peterson Air Force Base, CO — The North American Aerospace Defense Command is prepared to track Santa’s yuletide journey!
The NORAD Tracks Santa website, www.noradsanta.org , went live today at 6:00 p.m.
It features a holiday countdown, games and daily activities, video messages from students around the world, and more. The website is available in eight languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Chinese.
Official NORAD Tracks Santa apps are also available in the Windows Store, Apple Store, and Google Play, so parents and children can countdown the days until Santa’s launch on their smart phones and tablets! Tracking opportunities are also offered on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+. Santa followers just need to type “@noradsanta” into each search engine to get started.
Starting at 12:00 a.m. on December 24, website visitors can watch Santa make the preparations for his flight. Then, at 4:00 a.m., trackers worldwide can speak with a live phone operator to inquire as to Santa’s whereabouts by dialing the toll-free number 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
NORAD’s “Santa Cams” will also stream videos as Santa makes his way over various locations.
