A yearly tradition at my house is to track Santa's journey on Christmas Eve with NORAD. Every Christmas Eve NORAD takes a break from defending us and makes sure Santa's annual trek around the world goes off without a hitch. I even heard that Santa was escorted by a pair of F-22's into American airspace last year.

NORAD's Santa Tracker is a fun and cool way to see where Santa is around the globe on Christmas Eve and is updated by the minute all night long. NORAD, based in Colorado, is the military organization responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of the United States and Canada.

We already know Santa's using an iPhone this year and he's coming to Twin Falls, but for the first time you can use your iPhone or Android device to track Santa with NORAD. The apps will countdown to Christmas, and let you play special Christmas games while you wait. Then on Christmas Eve you can access NORAD's Santa Tracker to follow his journey to your house.
