Double Click To Track St. Nick

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Kids hoping to catch a glimpse of Kris Kringle this Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) can double click to track St. Nick.

NORAD, a military airspace security organization, will be helping naughty and nice kiddies all over the world track Santa Claus’ gift-giving route through their website,

The organization has been tracking St. Nick for 52 years using military radars, high-definition cameras, jet fighter aircraft, and satellites that detect the heat from Rudolph’s red nose.

Project officer Major Stacia Reddish says, “Santa is pretty easy to track. We coordinate with the North Pole, and they don’t try to conceal his whereabouts. We don’t want to catch him though, so we don’t lure him with milk and cookies.”

The website starts its online tracker feed at 2 AM on Monday (Dec. 24), and will also have 900 volunteers on-hand to help tykes track jolly old St. Nick by calling 1-877-Hi-NORAD.

But as of now, Reddish says Santa is “resting at the North Pole” for his big day.
