There are a number of websites that track Santa over the holidays. Starting in late November, these websites will spring into action.
The self-proclaimed “World’s Largest Christmas Community” is made up of three websites: Santa Update, Kringle Radio and My Merry Christmas.com. This community was formed in 1991.
Santa Update launched Operation Merry Christmas on November 28th, 2014. Operation Merry Christmas tells the story of the work necessary to get Santa launched on Christmas Eve. This has been an annual tradition since 1991.
The story is adorable and easy to read aloud. There is a question of the day, and followers can ask the Elves questions. It is adorable.
An offshoot of Santa Update is Tracking Santa which uses a map of the world to track his progress Christmas Eve. Starting late November you can keep track of what the sleigh is up to. For example, on November 24, 2014 the sleigh went to Detroit, Michigan, USA for several new coats of special new paint designed to improve its speed.
Kringle Radio is a year-round dedicated stream of Christmas music. Starting December 23rd the station broadcasts music just for Santa and his Christmas Eve flight with breaking news about Santa’s flight direct from the North Pole Newsroom.
My Merry Christmas.com is where the world reacts to news of Santa and his Christmas Eve flight.
EmailSanta.com/Santa-Tracker welcomes visitors Christmas Eve to track Santa. In the meantime, a Grumpy Old Elf answers many questions at the bottom of the home page, and there is Santa Claus’ Christmas Blog with lots of information.
Norad began this year’s tracking December 1, 2014. This is an annual Christmas entertainment program that began in 1955. It is in the tradition of the 1897 “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”. Norad also receives many, many calls and has volunteers to respond to all questions.
Google.com/Santa Tracker follows Santa on his December 24th journey using Google maps.
