Although NORAD doesn’t start tracking Santa until he leaves the North Pole on Christmas Eve, the government agency’s website — NORADSanta.org — is set to go live on December 1st, says NORAD’s Lieutenant Sean Carter. It has all kinds of information and Christmas activities kids can do while they’re waiting for the big day to arrive.
Children will also be able to check on Santa’s whereabouts by phone: 1-877-HI-NORAD. Last year, NORAD received more than 53,000 calls on Christmas Eve, Carter says.
How does Santa manage to hit every house with a child in it in just one night?
