One more thing to ask Alexa: Where's Santa on Christmas Eve?

27 December 2017, 02:26 | Patty Hardy

You can go to the NORAD Santa website to explore the North Pole, listen to music, or play some reindeer games.

It's Christmas Eve, and the US military squadron charged with protecting the airspace for North America is already on duty to track Santa Claus. The website is available in eight languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Chinese.

The Santa tracker started in 1955 when a newspaper ad invited kids to call Santa but mistakenly listed the phone number for a hotline to a military control room.

A tweet on NORAD's official Twitter account also reveals the way NORAD keeps a track of Santa's movements.

They engaged with the callers through North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)'s Santa Tracker program, which tracks the flight path of Santa Claus.

Starting on December 24 at 2:01 a.m. EST, website visitors can watch Santa make preparations for his flight.

NORAD uses its satellite systems, high-powered radar, and jet fighters to track Santa each year. Bing and Cortana users can also find Santa's location.

On duty that night was Col. Harry Shoup, who instead of hanging up on kids, answered hundreds of calls and updated the children about Santa's location.

NORAD has also shared a helpline number (1-877-HI-NORAD or 1-877-446-6723) where children can call and know about Santa's location.

NORAD Tracks Santa is truly a global experience, delighting generations of families everywhere.
