NORAD Santa Tracker is Tracking Santa Now

Tracking Santa this Christmas is quite an extravaganza event. Whether you use your smart phone, television, tablet or any other form of media, Saint Nicholas will be somewhere in the sky on his reindeer-driven sleigh. NORAD Santa Tracker is one means of pinpointing Santa’s exact location. The word is an acronym for North American Aerospace Defense Command. 

NORAD Santa Tracker is a joint effort by Americans and Canadians to detect any threats in the sky, it also serves this rather make-believe trend. The whole operation began in 1955 in what was actually an error. An advertisement told children to call a certain number in order to track out Santa’s location. This proved to be the contact number of CONAD, NORAD’s previous organization. But instead of disappointing the enthusiastic little kids, the defense firm started tracking Santa’s journey in the sky. 

Google also jumped on the bandwagon much later. Between 2007 and 2011, Google took part in joint exercises with NORAD Santa Tracker to find out the whereabouts of Santa. And in 2012, Microsoft and its search engine Bing have also been added to NORAD Santa Tracker’s list of enterprises aiding it in its efforts. 

While the organizations report different locations for the jingle bells jolly old man who fills the stockings with gifts, a small Christmas miracle seems to have taken place. The reports (based on faith) are converging. You can gaze and manipulate a map on which Santa’s trek across the global village is shown.
