Norad Santa Tracker

By Joel Comm December 17, 2002 45 Comments   

Here it is, that magical time of the year that makes us all young at heart again. The arrival of Santa Claus is eagerly anticipated world wide. But when will he be at your house, you ask? Well, with the help of today’s Family Site, you won’t be left to wondering.

Today’s site is the Official NORAD Santa Tracker site where you can follow the path of that jolly old elf. Here you can learn about the high tech methods that have been in use since 1958, as well as other Christmas history and music. There are photos from past Christmas seasons, showing Santa flying past the Washington Monument, the Pyramids in Egypt, and the MIR Space Station. There are some Christmas songs that are beautifuly performed by the USAF Band of the Rockies, and the Royal Canadian Artillery Band.

This is a great site to enjoy and return to often as December 25th approaches. Be sure to bookmark it for next year, and share it with your brothers and sisters, and have a Merry Christmas.

    Hi. I'm Shannon Lorraine Cunningham and I'm 13. Most of the kids at my school don't beleive in Santa and I pity their soul. It's like the lose their childhood by saying that. This is the place where I come and see Santa. This is my proof that he is real. And I look forward to seeing him in real life in about 5 years.

    na na na na na batman
  15. Anonymous says:
    Of course santa is real. If he wasn't why do some many people believe in him? Why would the NORAD (A joint US and Canadian defence system) track him on Christmas eve, when they could be looking for other things? That's proof.
  16. Paul says:
    Reindeers can fly if they go 800 MPH and Santa has some magic stuff up his sleeve.
  17. shane says:

    THERE ARE MANY WAY'S TO BELIEVE! IF U R A CHILD THE WAY TO BELIEVE IS THE JOLLY MAN IN A RED SUITE WITH REINDEER AND LOTS OF GIFTS. IF U R AN ADULT THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO BELIEVE. FOR EX: IF U HAVE GOOD HEALTH,FOOD AND A FAMILY U CAN SAY SANTA HAS VISITED ALL YEAR LONG....SEE IT IS ALL IN HOW U BELIEVE... I DON'T CARE HOW OLD U R THERE IS A SMALL PLACE IN EVERY HEART FOR THAT JOLLY OLD MAN. IT IS ALL IN HOW U LOOK AT THINGS. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
  24. Matt says:
    its me again and i think you should make a poll to see how many people beleive in santa - matt
  25. Matt says:
    i already wrote and i forgot to say that THE TRACKER STARTS DECEMBER 24 i knoiw because me and my sister checked last year, so go on www.noradsanta.com on december 24 to check, ok
  26. Matt says:
    Santa is real and for better info you should go to noradsanta.com instead of noradsantatracker.com, it is better. SANTA IS REAL anyone who dis agrees is an idiot - matt
  27. Rini says:
    Santa is real.... I now that for a fact! Comeon u non -believers!! i mean....haven't u ever heard of "Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus" by Francis P. Church?! And besides do u really think NORAD is going to track a guy that's not real?! Even the radio tracks him!!! Think they're lieing?!
  28. ARE YOU REAL ? HOW DO REINDEER FLY. CAN YOU DIE I ASKED THAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE LIVED A VERY VERY LONG LONG TIME . LOVE TAYLOR PS.WRITE ME BACK SOON IF YOU DON'T I WILL NOT BEILVE IN YOU
  29. Krystal says:

  30. mark says:

  31. Aldo says:
    I love christmas and l believe in santa
  32. K and K's Mom says:
    I think this is a wonderful site. My kids are 5 and 2 and we have used this site for quite a few years now. I'm so grateful that someone is willing to take the time to "add to the children's excitement." So to all involved, thank you for the effort. Happy Holidays!
  33. Bango says:
    "tim tim" ur so stupid, the reason why they ask you to check back later is because u went on there december 7th, and christmas is on december 25, so obviously there not gonna be tracking santa until the night before christmas, which is far from when u checked in. Oh yah and who the hell would want to bomb Canada.
  34. kathy says:
    Its not to track Santa's daily life, but his track on Christmas eve. For those who don't believe, I've been a very good girl, and will enjoy your share :o)
  35. Saaraah says:
    Thank you Dave for the suggestion on the website!
  36. Dave says:
    I couldn't get the main noradsanta.org page to work either, but the link I have below will get you in. I tried it today and I had no problems. http://www.noradsanta.org/english/home/index.html
  37. tim tim says:
    Silly santa tracker site! What is the point of having a site when all u can do on it is stare at some thing that says CHECK BACK SOON. Come on now does norad really run this site? If so then we should all be very worried! These people are in charge of air defence for like all of the continent! What if some country tried to bomb us what they gonna say? CHECK BACK SOON...were going for a beer. Come on give the little kids a break and update your site.
  38. James Gibson says:
    I got on the Norad santa site with this link http://www.noradsanta.org/english/aboutus/aboutNORAD.html Hope it helps!
  39. Mark says:
    well here we are november 30 and still no santa tracker its obvious that norad is run like washinton is last year when democrats were in office santa tracker was up and runnin when was supposed to thank for allowing me to post
  40. Gillian says:
    I have to agree with Gina. I don't believe in Santa Claus but I believe in his spirit. Anyways, so you said that it was beyond your control. Well, it's beyond OUR control and you don't see us not trying!!!! No offense intended, but couldn't you @ least call them?????? Or even email them????? Or direct them to our comments????? Thanks!?.
  41. Rich says:
    I'm sorry for the problems with the Santa Site, but WorldVillage has no control over sites that we review. I too am looking forward to this site going live, but it is beyone my control Rich Cunningham Editor, WorldVillage Family Site of the Day
  42. Valerie says:
    I have been trying for days to get into this website. All it says is to check back on November 25th for info on Santa's magical journey. There's nothing to click on or anything to do...kind of disappointing to my children...they were so excited. It'd be nice to know WHEN we can actually get into the site. Let us know as we are anxiously awaiting this firt-time visit to the Santa Tracker site. Today is the 29th. Happy Holidays ;)
  43. Steve says:
    Hey, it's now the 29th November (2003) & the site is not up & running yet, soooooo sad. (for the kids obviously, not me - *grin*) :-( p.s - & Gina was correct, Santa is real. ;-)
  44. Gina says:
    I totally agree with Ricky, 100%. Take for example, today is November 29th, and I went to the the website...www.noradsantatracker.com, which says check back November 25th for santa's magical journey, well today is the 29th and unless I'm missing something, 29 comes AFTER 25, so that website should be ready for viewing santa!! And if it's not, you shouldn't destroy the hopes and dreams of little kids expecting to see where Santa is on November 26th, since you told them the site would be ready on the 25th....and well you lied, and that's not very nice, and now Santa WILL NOT be good to you this year. :D So fix the site soon so we can see where he is!!!! Thanks and God Bless!! Gina P.S. SANTA IS REAL FOR ALL YOU NON-BELIEVERS OUT THERE!! :D
  45. Ricky says:
