NORAD Santa Watch!

I was showing to my kids: Santa had just left Hong Kong, which gave me the opportunity to explain why a) Santa couldn’t meet with them personally and b) what China was.  Busy day for St. Nick… although from his point of view, of course, it’s a busy night. Hot jets, Santa!

It’s time for NORAD’s Santa Tracker!

Saint Nick is currently heading for Dijon, France. NORAD has a pretty slick-looking interface this year, too: 3-d display, estimated present delivery, the works.

 

Merry Christmas.

NORAD: Santa approaching Jersualem.

Although that will be out of date by the time you read this, probably.  The title was too good to pass up, though*.

*No, not “slouching towards.”  Santa’s one of the Good Guys and the reference is to Bethlehem.  Which is next on the list as of this writing, admittedly.

Reminder: NORAD Tracks Santa starts tonight.

They’re using Google Earth this year:

This has always been one of the military’s better modern Christmas traditions.  Plus, of course, keeping track of Santa is always good practice for our military personnel, in case there’s a bean counter or two out there grumbling about things.  Because there’s always somebody out there grumbling about things.
