NORAD, Santa and Toon Santa at Closing of New York Stock Exchange 12.20.2010
The Commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and executives from Google, Booz Allen Hamilton and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, who help sponsor the NORAD Tracks Santa Program will join together at the NYSE alongside the one and only Santa from Macy’s to get people geared up to track Santa as he makes his yuletide journey. In honor of the occasion, representatives and guests of NORAD ring The Closing Bell(SM).
The men and women of NORAD have been tracking Santa for more than 50 years and are getting ready to do so again. The NORAD Tracks Santa website, www.noradsanta.org, features holiday games and activities that change daily. The website is available in seven languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Chinese. On Dec. 24, the website will stream videos, captured by NORAD “Santa Cams,” from cities along Santa’s journey.
This year, children are able to track Santa through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and TroopTube. To follow us on these Santa-tracking tools, type in “@noradsanta” into the search engine to start your tracking. Also, beginning at 12:00 a.m. MST on Dec. 24, visitors to the website can watch Santa as he prepares his sleigh, checks his list, and goes through all of his preparations to ensure he has a successful journey.
As soon as Santa takes off from the North Pole, children can also track him with up-to-the-minute updates on Google Maps and Google Earth through the NORAD Tracks Santa website. Santa trackers will begin answering phones and replying to email at 2:00 a.m. MST (4:00 a.m. EST) on December 24 and will continue until 3:00 a.m. MST (5:00 a.m. EST) December 25. Children of all ages can then call the NTS toll-free number 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) or send an email to
