NORAD tracks Santa across North America (and other ways to enjoy Christmas apps)

All of the preparations for Santa’s journey are in place! Santa’s elves have been as busy as ever this year, preparing for Santa’s sleigh ride on December 24th. This year, as every year for 64 years, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is the official tracker of Santa’s flight.
At the forefront of technology, NORAD has created every possible way to track Santa, as he prepares for Christmas, and as he carries his gifts around the world on Christmas Eve: through phone calls, email, by PC, Androids and iPhones, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Just type in “NORAD Santa Tracker.”
