Colorado Springs, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) - Got Kids? If so, you certainly don't want them to miss out on this little Christmas Eve treat. Santa Tracker, presented by NORAD (North American Defense Command) every Christmas Eve.
Santa Tracker is a real time - interactive presentation that you and your kids can use to spot-check where Santa is as he delivers presents around the world.
There is no log-in required, no personal information to give up, and most computers can easily display the site features.
I do recommend that you log into the site early and try to STAY logged in. As the evening progresses, the site becomes harder to load because of the hundreds of thousands of users who access the site at the same time.
GOOGLE EARTH teams up with Santa Tracker
This year marks the 2nd year Santa Tracker has gone 3D.
Besides a basic 2d Google map, Google Earth also offers a 3D version of Santa Tracker that enables you to see where Santa is with the realism of 3d. You'll need to download Google Earth and it's Santa Tracker plug in, but that process only takes about 5 minutes.
If you do not have a computer, or if all efforts to log on fail, you can still get an update by telephone. It's TOLL FREE
Speak To NORAD Santa Tracker in person: 1-877-446-6723
Do not let the load time dissuade you. With a little effort, you'll get in. It's worth the effort, and your kids will absolutely love it!

Many people know about Santa Tracker, but few people know the story of how NORAD got involved with this annual event. I found the answer on www.wisegeek.com. Check it out!
