Celebrating 62nd Anniversary NORAD Tracks Santa for Christmas 2017

Santa Face

Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born. Millions of people who want to know Santa's whereabouts now visit the NORAD Tracks Santa website.

Thanks to the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) you can join Rudolph, Dancer, Prancer and the whole gang as they make the epic journey across the world.

A Christmas tradition is back at it again with the North American Aerospace Defense Command's Santa Tracker in full swing, mapping Santa's trip as we speak. If your kids are wondering how Santa gets to ALL those houses in just one night, it's easy to see that the world being round is a big help to him and his reindeer.

Now children around the globe can follow along Kris Kringle's annual yuletide journey online at noradsanta.org starting at 2:01 a.m. on December 24.




The Santa Tracker program began in 1955 because of a mistake in a Colorado Springs newspaper advertisement from Sears Roebuck & Co. The website is available in eight languages. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone rang through to the Crew Commander on duty at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center.

NORAD Tracks Santa is truly a global experience, delighting generations of families everywhere.

When not spreading holiday cheer, NORAD conducts aerospace and maritime control and warning operations - including monitoring for missile launches from North Korea, something that may have been on Santa's mind as he passed over the country's capital of Pyongyang.
