This is something we all look forward to every year.

It's the official Norad Santa Tracker. We didn't have this when I was a kid. There are so many Santa trackers out there, and pretty much everyone of them started December 1st. Through out the years, I always loved the Norad Santa Tracker.

There's a countdown clock for Santa coming to town. It's an easy website, even for little fingers. My favorite part of Norad Santa Tracker is the information on Santa's Sleigh.

Who knew? Some information about Santa's Sleigh:

*Weight at take off 75,000 gd (GUM DROPS)

*Fuel for Santa's Sleigh - Hay, Oats, and Carrots (for the reindeer, of course)

There's so much fun for kids of all ages on the website. They can learn traditions around the world. It's real simple, click on the country and learn what other families do for Christmas.

And, information about the "big" man himself, Santa:

It all about Santa's journey and how he is alive in the hearts of children all over the world and the magic he brings.

 

#DYK that #NORAD uses satellites with infrared sensors (which can “see” heat) to help detect rocket or missile launches?...

This year, on the Norad website, games to play. It's an advent calendar, counting down to Christmas and each day there are different games for kids to play. It's pretty neat. And once again you can track Santa on December 24th, Christmas Eve, all around the world.
