It’s that time of year again, folks, when the world celebrates a guy that certain detractors think was created by a soda company, and when NORAD spends its time monitoring Santa Claus, because, I mean, the North American Aerospace Defense Command has to monitor suspicious objects flying around in the sky for our safety. What’s more suspicious than a fat guy in a red suit riding around in a flying sleigh drawn by flying reindeer, who also happens to break into a bunch of houses throughout the night? NORAD tracks his current location and how many gifts he has delivered, so you can see the true workhorse that is Santa Claus.
NORAD also offers an app for both iOS and Android, so you can track Santa on the go, and maybe even get your own flying sleigh and see if you can keep up with him. There is also more to play with in NORAD’s tracker, and they have a substantial tips and tricks page to make you aware of the neat things one can do with their tracker. So, go get adept at Santa-watching, and have a merry monitoring!
