Yep, best in the world is right here, Heather:

Tracking Santa on My Merry Christmas

This is a huge tradition in my house. We tack a map to the wall and follow Santa's flight all day long with a marker. Every half hour the updates come in, starting early in the AM.

The countdown has started!

www.noradsanta.org is a good one too. Also if u don't want to be on the internet all day they give u a toll free number to call where u will speak to someone and they will tell u where he is

8) That is cool, Jeff. Here's a link to a CBS news article from last year, celebrating 50 years of tracking Santa with NORAD.

:-) I remember watching the approach of Santa on our local TV news, once he neared Nova Scotia, we headed for bed to make sure we were asleep so he wouldn't skip our house along the way.

I've been tracking Santa on the internet for three years. I shared the link with the grandkids one year and it brought back all those wonderful emotions of a child at Christmas - still existing in me.

8-) Last summer during our Heritage Weekend (Civic Holiday in Canada), I was able to visit (tour) our branch of Norad (underground) for the last time. It is now closed to tours as they prepare to move the site above ground.
During the tour when we saw the radar screen and the people working "in the hole" I exclaimed - "hey that's where you track, Santa Claus!" It shocked a few folks that someone my age would be reduced to about seven with the first glimpse at the huge viewing area - it rather tickled the spirit of the two young lads that were with me and my older cousins, and the guide himself chuckled at my delight.

Jeff MMC's tracking santa is a link on my christmas site. :-D

Those are both such cool sites! But, as an Air Force vet, I'm partial to NORAD.

A local news channel here tracks Santa with their super duper Doppler radar.
