Norad Santa Tracker 2010: Facebook and Google Earth

Dare I say it, the C word in November… that’s right Christmas is on its way! You certainly know it’s on its way when the NORAD Santa Tracker starts appearing on Facebook and Google. Every year NORAD track Santa as he leaves the North Pole and starts delivering presents to children.

The service started on 24th December 1955 and began when a Sears department store placed an advertisement for children to telephone Santa Clause with a telephone number in the Colorado Springs newspaper. Obviously with the rise in technology and the use of social media the way that Santa is tracked has changed a little.

Now that technology has moved forward, there is an official NORAD Santa Tracking page that will use Google Earth to track him! You can visit the site here however at the moment there is a message on the website saying “Come back on December 1st to Track Santa with NORAD!” The advancements doesn’t stop here, there is even a Facebook page which you can link to here.

Will you be tracking Santa with NORAD this year? Are you a member of their Facebook page already? Did you track Santa last year?
