Track Santa Live with NORAD!
As always, NORAD, the United State military command that watches for incoming nuclear missiles from Russia, the People's Republic of China, and other potential hostile regimes has been monitoring Santa's progress as he travels all around the world. The Official NORAD Santa tracker went live at 6 am Eastern Time (US) in several languages. Right now the jolly old fat man is in New Zealand but he is making his way west. In this era of Web 2.0 Santa and NORAD have also set up a Twitter feed.
For brief background and neat tidbits of information like why NORAD has been following the man since 1955, read Wired's article on just how NORAD tracks the red man.
