Meanwhile, trackers - both young and old - worldwide can speak with a live phone operator to inquire as to Santa's whereabouts. Authorities have cleared Santa Claus for take-off for his around the globe flight and all the good little boys and girls in Holmdel and Colts Neck can expect a visit on Christmas Eve.
As of 11:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve, Santa had made it through numerous countries in Asia and was making his way through Russian Federation. Bing and Cortana users can also find Santa's location on December 24. This is so children traveling can also follow along.
The Santa Tracker program began in 1955 because of a mistake in a Colorado Springs newspaper advertisement from Sears Roebuck & Co. It went on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in 2008. If your kids are wondering how Santa gets to ALL those houses in just one night, it's easy to see that the world being round is a big help to him and his reindeer.
Keep in mind, Santa's route can be affected by weather, so it's really unpredictable.

The NORAD Santa Tracker first started in 1955, but the history of the Santa Tracker is actually pretty amusing and ridiculous.
As Santa makes his journey around the world delivering toys to children, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is tracking his every move. The phone number published was actually for the commander in chief's operations hotline at the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD), which was NORAD's predecessor.
Col. Harry Shoup, who was in charge of the operations center, took the first child's call.
