NORAD launches annual Santa-tracking website
Santa may be always watching you, but for a limited engagement each holiday season, you can watch him back.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command has launched its annual countdown clock and website ahead of Santa’s flight with his reindeer on Christmas Eve.
The website, www.noradsanta.org, includes videos, information on NORAD, the story of how the agency began tracking Santa’s flight 61 years ago and video games and activities for kids of all ages (I’d be lying if I didn’t admit how addictive today’s game, “Santa Hop,” is; the games are updated daily).
It also includes Santa’s “secret files,” with the specifications of the sleigh, which weighs 60,000 tons at takeoff and can move faster than starlight.
