5 Places to Track Santa this Christmas


From chocolate-filled Advent calendars to red and green paper chains, counting down the days to Christmas has always been an exciting daily activity for little ones! This year, kick your Christmas countdown up a notch with some clever and interactive Santa Trackers and keep a special watch on where the jolly man in the red suit is!

Google Santa Tracker
Keep an eye on Santa with the Google Santa Tracker, a cartoon-style site dedicated to Father Christmas! This highly-interactive format includes Santa’s Village, a site where kiddos will find games and, perhaps, even some of Santa’s elves! Make sure to check out Santa’s dashboard, which features not only Google Maps technology but also sleigh engineering while you learn all about some of the stops Santa makes!

NORAD Tracks Santa
NORAD Tracks Santa kicks off on December 1, and little ones will want to visit this site each day for games, music, and stories! Santa’s magical journey is also documented each hour on Christmas Eve, so be sure to check out the Santa Cam for highlights once Santa departs the North Pole!

TrackingSanta.net
Developed by the North Pole Tracking Department, TrackingSanta.net is a family-friendly service highlighting the journey of our favorite jolly, white-bearded man! Use the map on the TrackingSanta.net homepage to check out his whereabouts on the most magical night of the year! TrackingSanta.net also includes links to track Santa by text and even chat with the North Pole, courtesy of Elf Headquarters! This site also hosts Kringle Radio, which offers online streaming of Christmas programming, and MyMerryChristmas.com, a unique site posting reactions to Santa’s Christmas Eve flight!

Santa Update
Head on over to Santa Update ASAP for the latest news and a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Santa, Mrs. Claus, the North Pole, and all of the reindeer and elves! This entertaining site is perfect for anyone who might need an extra daily dose of jolly from now through Christmas Day! With online activities like “Name Santa’s Baby Reindeer,” “Become a Secret Spy for Santa,” and traditional favorites like “Email Santa,” the whole family can find something to enjoy!

The Santa Tracker
