Norad Santa Tracker, Google Santa Tracker 2015 Live Stream Update: Where Is Santa Clause Now?
The NORAD Santa Tracker and the Google Santa Tracker have been activated for Christmas 2015, with millions of children around the world looking to track exactly where Santa is on the way to delivering their presents.
The NORAD Santa Tracker can be found by clicking here and streams of volunteers will be spending Christmas Eve answering phone calls and emails from children.
The Norad Santa Tracker is quite the operation, and dozens of staff will be working to take calls, as well as give updates as to Santa's progress on social media sites Facebook and Twitter, as well as on the Santa Tracker main website.
This will be the 60th year the Santa Tracker has taken place. It originally started in 1955 when a newspaper offered a phone number for children to call and find out exactly where Santa was at that exact time.
In that year the phone number posted was for the Continental Aerospace Defense Command, which has since become the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
In 1955, as calls started piling in, the officers on duty obliged and gave updates about Santa's whereabouts.
As technology has advanced, there have become more and more ways for children to keep track of Santa, and this year updates will be posted throughout Christmas Eve on www.noradsanta.org as well as the Facebook page www.facebook.com/noradsanta and the Twitter page at www.twitter.com/NoradSanta.
The Santa Tracker website was launched in 1997 through there children are able to have a visual glimpse of Santa's progress. The website typically generates more than 20 million views from children and parents around the world.
There is also a Google Santa Tracker available to give a different version of the update. Google's Santa Tracker is a more colorful cartoon representation while NORAD shows a more life-like avatar of Santa with his reindeer galloping in the sky.
