Track Santa on Christmas Eve
The official NORAD Santa site has a countdown clock, an interactive game section and lots of info on the jolly ole elf including the best FAQ ever. Sample: “How can Santa travel the world within 24 hours? NORAD intelligence reports indicate that Santa does not experience time the way we do.” You can find out how to send or receive a personal video message from Santa. On Christmas Eve, you can download the Google Earth plug-in to track Santa’s flight in 3-D and view an interactive that shows how many cookies Santa eats during his journey.
