Santa's Got A Brand New Bag: Taking Santa's Journey Digital, Courtesy of NORAD

I know it's Christmas Eve, and I'm officially on vacation, but I couldn't stop myself from posting NORAD's 2010 Santa Tracker that already started (in Australia and Asia) even though we've got more than 12 hours to go until Christmas Day.

For 55 years NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) has tracked Santa with  NORAD men, women, family and friends have selflessly volunteered their time to personally respond to phone calls and emails from children all around the world.

In recent years NORAD began to track Santa using the internet, YouTube and Google Earth, and millions of people (adults and children) who want to know Santa’s whereabouts now visit the NORAD's Track Santa website for up to the minute videos and map tracking of Santa's journey.

The site integrates the best the digital world has to offer: interactive gaming, video, map tracking, multiple languages...What an amazing site for the holidays.
