Find Out The Inside Scoop On Santa's Yuletide Journey From Our Friends At NORAD!

Alanna Sobel

For more than 50 years, our friends at North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) have been tracking Santa's holiday travels around the globe. Throughout the month of December, children and parents are invited to visit the NORAD Tracks Santa website at to play a new game each day and countdown the days until Santa's launch. On December 24th, you can visit the site for real-time information on Santa's exact location.

The map uses little red and yellow presents to note the places Santa has already visited. You can click on the presents to learn fun facts about each location. Watch this video to learn more about NORAD Tracks Santa:
