Did you know you can track Santa's travels around the world?
It's true! NORAD, an organization created in 1958, who is responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of the United States and Canada, has a website that does just that! The site has a countdown to Christmas, and when Santa sets out on Christmas Eve, this site will use their satellite imagery to track Santa's path! In collaboration with Google Earth, you can even see his trip in 3D! Because of the time zones and international date line, Santa's trip actually begins on Wednesday at 6:00 am eastern time in the South Pacific! Visit http://www.noradsanta.org/ to check the countdown, learn many interesting facts about Santa and his travels, and most importantly, track Santa's trip on Christmas Eve!
