NORAD marks 50 years of tracking Santa on Christmas Eve

  1. By 50 years of not shooting him out of the sky. But they want the little fat man to know that at any moment, they could..if they really wanted to!

    This is a cool site you can show your kids...they track santa on his trip! Maybe it will get your kids in bed early on Christmas eve? :icon_cool

    so do ours. I think it is adorable and it is so nice to see a child's face light up when they see Santa is getting close to their state/neighborhood.

    I have loved this site for years!! It's recently undergone a facelift, too, which was an improvement on an already-good thing!! Thanks for the reminder, I passed it along to all the ppl I work with, who have little ones (mine are too big now to care . . I still believe in Santa, though!!! ).
