NORAD: The Official Santa Tracker

NORAD provides updates by phone, Facebook, Twitter and email. If you call 877-HI-NORAD on Christmas Eve, a live person will give you an update. You can also email noradtrackssanta@outlook.com. NORAD’s Santa operations center opens at 6 a.m. ET on Dec. 24. NORAD says Santa usually starts in the South Pacific and hits New Zealand and Australia before heading to Japan and Asia. Africa and Europe are next, followed by North America and South America. Santa calls the shots, NORAD says on its website. We just track him!
