Santa gave gifts to kids at UVA Children's Hospital on Christmas

The tracking app is a fun way for parents and kids to prepare for Santa's arrival together: after all, he and his reindeer are probably a bit too busy spreading Christmas cheer to respond to any frantic "ETA???" texts.

Currently, the airborne enterprise is in Wolfsburg, Germany, headed to Zurich, Switzerland.

Santa Claus has crossed the Atlantic Ocean and made his first few pit stops in Canada, according to the tracking efforts of the Canadian and USA militaries.

At very first perplexed as he discovered himself in accordance with a new man asking him if he had been "Santa Claus", the job officer that time, Colonel Harry Shoup, experienced the video game.

But if you're looking to keep it simple, people can still make telephone calls to 1-877-HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) to get a precise location on Papa Noel.

The tradition began in 1955 when a printing error in an advertisement in the newspaper telling children that they could accidentally call Santa directly to the predecessor of NORAD, the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center. Then, many calls come from the US and Canada, said program manager Preston Schlachter.

Boeing could suspend or cut 737 MAX output
The company makes a wide variety of aircraft components and counts Boeing as one of its top customers. The Max is produced at Boeing's Renton plant in Washington state, which employs about 12,000 people.


The company has introduced a search feature that uses the AR tech of your phone and reproduces a 3D Santa that could be seen in any open space, be it your room or garden, through the camera viewfinder of the device. It even has information about all the places around the world Santa is visiting.

More than 60 years later, NORAD is still answering calls and emails with the help of about 1,500 military and civilian volunteers.

Similarly, these days most info in the world is only a simple Google search away.

And a tradition was born.

However, there seems to be a glitch as Mr. Claus' location differs in the two trackers...

There is also a camera button to take pictures of AR Santa in your room and share them later with friends, family. Rovaniemi, in Finnish Lapland, is known around the world for hosting his office.
