Follow Santa's journey with NORAD's Santa Tracker

Posted: Updated:

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. (AP) -- For kids who can't wait for Santa to arrive, the North American Aerospace Defense Command has a Christmas treat. Visions of sugar plums can be augmented by a check on the fat man's progress around the globe on Christmas Eve.

Here are the links you need to know about the holiday tradition called NORAD Tracks Santa:

NORAD provides updates by phone, Facebook, Twitter and email. If you call 877-HI-NORAD, a live person will give you an update.

Twitter: @NoradSanta
Email:  noradtrackssanta@outlook.com.

Smartphone apps are also available at app stores. NORAD's Santa operations center opens at 6 a.m. ET on Dec. 24.

NORAD says Santa usually starts in the South Pacific and hits New Zealand and Australia before heading to Japan and Asia. Africa and Europe are next, followed by North America and South America. "Santa calls the shots," NORAD says on its website. "We just track him!"
