    Ya beat me to it, lol. I was gonna post the link later, but you saved me the trouble. I check it out most years because it's pretty cool how they do it, and the graphics get better each year. It's a lot of fun, even for grown up kids like me!

    http://www.claus.com also has a Santa Tracker plus lots of other fun features for little kids. Not as advanced as Norad, but more fun and games.

    Once you click on your language at NORAD's site, you can also download a google earth 3-D Santa Tracker!!

    DK, it's good to have several trackers because the server busy warnings are really irritating when the kids are anxiously watching! Thanks for the info!

    I've had Google Earth up doing the 3D tracking (yes, I'm just a big ole kid). Norad has outdone themselves, this time... it's cute to watch it in 3D. LoL

    Fun spot. I downloaded google earth.
    I can remember when I was a little girl (back in the dark ages), our local radio station tracked Santa. We'd listen to see if he was getting near.

    I think that would be neat for children today, BarnGoddess! I miss those old radio shows, and I didn't even experience half of them.

    Thanks for the neat site ! We loved it. My kids and I have been tracking Santa for most of the afternoon and then tonight after we got back from my mom's house. At exactly 12 midnight our time, Santa was seen flying over Costa Rica on Google Earth, so you can imagine how crazy my two kids went ! I have had the hardest time trying to get them to settle down and to fall asleep !

    It's that time of the season again, this is a great site for the kiddies to track Santa along the way....
