If you go to NORAD's website you can see where Santa is on a Google Earth-style map.
She also said, get in bed by 9 p.m.to make sure Santa can deliver toys in our hometowns.
With Christmas Eve upon us, children all over the world may be wondering when Santa is going to arrive at their house!
The North American Aerospace Defense Command has been tracking the guy in the red suit since December 1 and parents can use the NORAD Tracks Santa website, www.noradsanta.org, to help keep little ones busy until December 25.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is celebrating the 62nd Anniversary of tracking Santa's yuletide journey!
The hotline will be open at 6 a.m. Instead of turning the calls away, the director of operations, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff provide radar-tracked updates of Santa's location.
In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defense command for North America called the North American Aerospace Defense Command, also known as NORAD, which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa.
The Santa tracking tradition began in 1955 after a Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Amazon Alexa users can also ask for Santa's location and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa.
