The query that everyone wants to know the answer to is being posed by good little boys and girls from all around the world: When will Santa arrive at my house?
That NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has everything under control is a good thing.
For 67 years, NORAD has tracked Santa as he travels the world on Christmas Eve using its cutting-edge equipment. On December 24, they will begin tracking Santa at 5 a.m. CST. Call 1-877 HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) to speak with a NORAD employee who can provide you with Santa’s precise position. There are operators on duty till midnight.
You can contact email@example.com by email as well. Also available online at https://www.noradsanta.org/en/ is the official Windows 8 app that allows you to track Santa on a mobile device.

On Christmas Eve, NORAD routinely receives over 111,000 calls from 200 different countries and responds to about 12,000 emails. The Santa Tracker is funded entirely by corporate sponsors; no public monies are used.
When will Santa be at my house on Christmas?
Santa Claus typically begins his journey at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean and continues west, first stopping in the South Pacific before moving on to New Zealand and Australia, according to NORAD. After that, he takes off toward Japan, Asia, then western Europe, Canada, the US, Mexico, Central America, and South America.
“Remember that the weather might have an impact on Santa’s route, making it somewhat unexpected. To confirm Santa’s launch time, NORAD works with his elf launch staff, but after that, Santa is in charge. We’ve only found him! said NORAD.
While the precise hour is uncertain, NORAD officials said it appears Santa only visits when kids are fast asleep, usually between 9 p.m. and midnight local time.
What about the weather?
NORAD officials stated that they do not anticipate Santa being hindered by the current weather, including the bomb cyclone.
Here’s what we know about Santa and his sleigh, according to NORAD:
K. Kringle and Elves, Inc. created and constructed Santa’s sleigh, which is thought to have taken flight for the first time on December 24, 343 AD.
The sleigh’s dimensions are 77 candy canes long, 40 candy canes broad, and 55 candy canes high. It is stationed at the North Pole.
It weighed 75,000 gumdrops during launch, including 260 pounds of Santa Claus.60,000 tonnes of gifts can fit in Santa’s sleigh, which is driven by 9 reindeer fed on hay, oats, and carrots. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph are Santa’s reindeer.
The best part is that, according to military specialists, its top speed is quicker than starlight.
