Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, do you believe in Santa Claus? Even if you don’t, maybe you have kids that do (believe) or you’re just looking to have a little fun for the holiday season! If so, you’re in luck!
The Internet is full of ways to keep up with and track Santa Clausthis Christmas, and today I’m going to share 5 of those ways with you.
At the NorthPole.com you and/or your child can keep up with Santa. You can scroll over the buildings to learn more about Santa’s Secret Village; there’s also some pretty cool sound effects each time you scroll over a new building. You can click on Santa’s Workshop to read stories about toys and Elves, among many other things. There’s also a place to send letters to Santa, and he’ll actually write you (or your child) back!
There’s even a cool feature that lets parents help Santa to create a more personalized experience for their kids. This is definitely a place where you can easily waste an hour clicking around, having fun, and making Christmas more memorable for your kids.
If you want to track Santa by the day, hour, minute and seconds, the NORAD tracker is the ultimate tool for the job. You can sign up for updates from the North Pole and keep up with Santa’s activities as he goes around the world delivering Christmas gifts.
NORAD Santa Tracker has mobile apps for the iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone so that you can keep up with him on your smart phone as well. If you decide to use a mobile app, you’ll get alerts each time Santa is spotted and when he’s makes a major stop. You can also track Santa on Cesium, Bing Maps, and Boxcar.
At SantaClaus.net everything is about Santa Claus. You can send letters to Santa, listen to Christmas songs, play games, track Santa, see the weather at the North Pole, see what Santa’s Reindeer are up to, check if you’ve been naughty or nice, get a phone call from Santa, and much more.
SantaClaus.net is fun for the whole family. You can set up a personal call from Santa for your kids and even let your kids talk to the Elf of their choice. Whether you or your child wants to keep up with Santa or the Elves, this the is a great website to do so. You may also enjoy My Merry Christmas, which is very similar to SantaClaus.net.
Where’s Santa Claus Now is similar to the NORAD track. It uses a satellite tracking group from the Intelligence & Space Research (ISR) Division to track Santa Claus and his whereabouts on Christmas Eve. As Santa delivers gifts around the world, the satellite will monitor Santa’s progress and display it on their website.
There’s already a “preliminary flight plan” listed on their website. You can see where Santa and his reindeer will be from 7am to Midnight. Santa will begin his journey on Christmas Eve at 6am and you can tune into all the fun on the Where’s Santa Claus Now website.
Do you or your child want to speak to Santa Claus directly? At Santa Speaks you can schedule a phone call and make your child’s dreams come true. You’ll need to make a reservation to talk to Santa live, and since time slots are filling up fast you’ll want to act quickly.
The only downside to Santa Speaks is that it does cost money; it’s not a free service. However, you get to select the day and time of your call and even personalize the call with your own information (or information about your child). What better way to keep up with Santa than to talk to him personally?
