Video Of The Week - Track Down Santa!

By Meera Dolasia on December 24, 2011

If you live anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, you are probably counting down the number of hours before the generous jolly man in the red suit, sneaks down the chimney and floods your Christmas tree with gifts (or coal)!

However, unlike previous years you now longer have to wonder if Santa Claus is coming to your town, because thanks to a collaboration between the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) and search giant Google, you can now track down exactly where he is at any given minute!

All you have to do is simply type in the word 'Santa' on the Google Maps App on your Smartphone or visit the NORAD Santa Website or, call 877-HI-NORAD to see whether he is anywhere close to where you live. Wondering what's revealing Santa's location? Apparently it's Rudolph's bright red nose that emits an infrared signature, which is picked up by NORAD's satellites.

Happy Santa Tracking and a Merry Christmas to all of you!

                        I hear you. Last year I got a mood ring and some other stuff, and in the living room, there was the exact same wrapping paper all around it. Talk about messy! So, unless Santa forgot to wrap my present at his workshop, I don't think he's real. When I was younger, i believed he was real, but I always argued that, santa's not really that busy cuz they're time zones! So he'll be dropping out present for like, maybe two to three days. Now that I think about it, I was (and probably am! ) a strange kid...
