The North American Aerospace Defense Command is getting ready to track Santa’s journey once again this year! The NORAD Tracks Santa website is up and running. currently features a Kid’s Countdown Village with holiday games, daily activities, and more. Make sure to visit the site on December 24th to track Santa’s every move before and during his yuletide journey.

Starting at 12:00 a.m. Mountain Time on December 24th, website visitors can watch Santa as he makes all his preperations for the flight. At 4:00 a.m. Mountain Time, trackers worldwide can then talk to a live phone operator to find out more concerning Santa’s whereabouts by dialing 1-877-HI-NORAD (toll-free). NORAD’s “Santa Cams” will also stream videos as Santa takes his magical journey.

This year parents and children can do all of this on their smart phones as well. The Apple iTunes Store and the Android Market both have free apps, just type “@noradsanta” into the search engine to get started. Tracking opportunities are also offered on Facebook, Google+, YouTube, and Twitter. It’s a new world, even Santa can’t hide any longer!
