As a parent, I even love watching the Santa Tracker! Every year it makes the night feel so magical and once Santa makes it to our state, it’s a great excuse to get the kids to bed since they can see for themselves how close Santa is getting!
How To Track Santa Claus with NORAD
When Christmas Eve has started around the world, you can hop on over to the NORAD Santa Tracker and watch Santa deliver presents live! You can follow him as he starts in Asia and builds the anticipation all day long as he nears the United States!
NORAD offers this free service every year and has even been known to provide an escort for Santa from time to time. The Santa Tracker will even tell you how many gifts Santa has delivered so far on Christmas Eve (and it’s a lot!) So cool!
NORAD started tracking Santa since 1955 when a child accidentally called the unlisted phone number of the Continental Air Defense (CONAD) Operations Center upon seeing a newspaper advertisement, which mentioned kids should call Santa. NORAD Tracks Santa has been operating for 65 years now and every year NORAD mentions Santa’s location on Christmas Eve, to millions of children around the world.

While the Santa tracker won’t be live until Dec. 24, you can still play a candy cane tilt game, fly an elf on a jetpack, take a penguin down a ski slope, search for Santa in a handful of different environments, read a story about Ollie the narwhal, jam with elves in an all-elf band, paint or draw color holiday characters, and enjoy many more fun activities.
If you’d love to check in on Santa’s reindeer as well, head on over to Reindeer Cam where you can see Santa feed his beloved flying reindeer from 9AM to 5PM MST. You can also check out videos from previous dates, including videos of Santa reading classic Christmas stories!
