From baking cookies, to pouring a glass of milk and leaving both of them as a thanks in advance for Santa Claus as he slides down the chimney and brings children around the World gifts and presents, so many kids have asked the same question over and over again: “Where is Santa Claus and when will he be here?”
Mean while, kids and their parents, especially parents that struggles to come up with a reasonable answer that could calm their children down while getting tucked in on Christmas Eve, Santa has the equivalent of a LoJack GPS tracker. It has been installed on the same sleigh that is towed by Rudolph, his red nose and his seven other fellow reindeer. This was invented by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the tracking device provides up-to-the-minute location, and this information is based on real time to let anybody curious enough know where Saint Nicholas is at all times.
It doesn’t end there, as an added bonus to the live streaming footage of Santa, the NORAD Santa Track website offers everything from festive, seasonal music to games to even a gift shop for any last-minute shoppers who may have forgotten to pick up a present or two.
For those that love tech and don’t want to be glued to a desktop or laptop computer trying to watch Santa’s every move, you’re in luck. And your luck is that there’s an app for that. It’s known as NORAD Tracks, and it can be downloaded for Apple, Windows and Android devices.
More-over, you can also track Santa on your social media such as Twitter account and Facebook page devoted to keeping peoples that are obsessed up to speed on Kris Kringle’s every move through constant updates.
Sears Roebuck & Co. pioneered this idea of tracking Santa some years ago, in the year 1955 by calling the North Pole resident directly. Though, the print ad provides us with incorrect contact information, and anyone that dials the number that is listed will be answered by the Continental Air Defense Command instead. But the awesome Christmas spirit always prevails, workers told children what they wanted to hear. From then hence forth, tracking Santa became an official thing.
