Here Comes Santa Claus

It has become a Serendipity35 tradition to track Santa's incredible journey on Christmas Eve. Of course, we use technology to do that.

The "NORAD Tracks Santa" web site is part public relations and part educational and part just fun.

Of course, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is serious business, but for more than 50 years they have been giving press releases about detecting Santa's sleigh and reindeer using their tracking systems as he leaves the North Pole.

I remember those reports as a kid being tagged onto the end of the evening news. The past few years, people are more likely to check on Santa online, so NORAD has added Google Earth to display the trip in 3D.

Santa’s elves have been busier than usual this year preparing. Visit Santa’s Village to see what’s been going on, and join in on the fun!
