Jolly Santa is tracked by NORAD’s radars and the volunteer team who aim to bring Christmas closer to children worldwide. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is preparing for this year’s most important mission.
Since 1955, NORAD has undertook this important mission yearly. Thousands of phone calls received from children worldwide have been answered. Details about Santa’s location are anxiously sought by everyone looking to prepare the milk and cookies just in time for Santa’s arrival. Presents may play a big part in this too. How much longer until the jolly old man delivers them? Children worldwide can find out by emailing or phoning NORAD’s headquarters in the Peterson Air Force base.
As jolly Santa is tracked by NORAD’s radars, some less storybook helpers are making the holiday mission possible. Tech units and volunteers have been deployed to prepare the mission room accordingly. Dozens of computers are ready, hundreds of telephones and miles of wires decorate the NORAD’s holiday mission room. Google and Microsoft are joining the fun.
For the fourth consecutive year, Google and Microsoft are giving a helping hand in tracking Santa’s sleigh. Santa tracker is available for your Android, iOS or Windows phones and is ready to deliver last minute news on his whereabouts. While waiting for Santa’s sleigh, be sure to show your children the official website of Santa tracker. It’s filled with holiday surprises, jingles, movies and information on Christmas worldwide.
For additional help, check out Google maps and pinpoint the location of Santa’s sleigh. Sgt. Kyle Kelly with NORAD is anxiously awaiting the jump start of holiday mission. In anticipation Sgt. Kelly explained that each year brings about new additions to the mission. This year, as jolly Santa is tracked by NORAD’s radars, volunteers will keep an eye out for 23 hours, as well as on Christmas Eve. If you can’t get in touch with them, Twitter and Facebook are hosting the last information on the whereabouts of Santa’s sleigh.
According to Sgt. Kelly, even First Lady Michelle Obama will volunteer with answering phone calls. Be they from New Zealand, Europe, the U.S. or Australia (the lead regions of curious children), all phone calls will be attended to.
