Track Santa's journey around the globe this Christmas Eve

Santa Claus has begun his journey around the world, dropping gifts in Korea, Hong Kong and Indonesia, according to the NORAD Santa Tracker. It was the 62nd year for the wildly popular program run by the USA and Canadian militaries.

The tracker now also has smartphone apps for iPhone and Android devices, while Amazon Alexa users can ask for Santa's location through the NORAD Tracks Santa skill.

The website is www.noradsanta.org, with updates offered in a number of languages in addition to English.

A tweet on NORAD's official Twitter account also reveals the way NORAD keeps a track of Santa's movements.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is preparing to track a sleigh and eight tiny reindeer around the world as it heads for USA airspace Sunday night.

When not spreading holiday cheer, NORAD conducts aerospace and maritime control and warning operations - including monitoring for missile launches from North Korea, something that may have been on Santa's mind as he passed over the country's capital of Pyongyang.

The site allows you to track Santa's journey in both 3D and 2D, and has videos and pictures of the places he has visited. The joint US-Canadian command is based at Petersen Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. Each volunteer was averaging about 80 calls an hour, he said.

Micayla Hernandez, a six-year elf says one call sounded like this, "He called asking to speak to speak to Santa and I told him Santa has a very strict no cell phones while flying policy". "He's not a picky eater", McFarland said.
