The North Pole

The North Pole puts out a lot of resources to track Santa Claus and to answer questions about Christmas, Santa, Elves and life at the North Pole.

Santa’s story is called Operation Merry Christmas – a year-long effort to being Christmas to the world. Each year is a new story. We love to watch them tell it – direct from the North Pole.

Below are resources helps Santa to produce so that the commercial-free message of his mission and the story of his Christmas adventure gets told every year. Our connection with the North Pole is at the very heart of our founding back in 1991.

This is the same map on the big screen at North Pole Flight Command. It shows in real time exactly where Santa’s Sleigh is performing test flight maneuvers. The bouncing marker shows the current location of the test flight. On Christmas Eve this same map is used to show Santa’s position:
