So, the excitement is building, you're getting the cookies and milk ready, how do you know if the man is red is on schedule? You use the Official NORAD Santa Tracker!
In case you've forgotten, NORAD is the North American Aerospace Defense Command, "a bi-national United States and Canadian organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning and aerospace control for North America." They know their stuff, so they're the go-to people for keeping track of Santa.
Make sure you visit the Santa Tracker with the kids and let them "visit" Santa's Village to see how the preparations are going.
And, afterwards, for some hokey Christmas viewing, borrow The Santa Clause with Tim Allen [DVD SAN]. (We also have The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.)
