It may still be daytime where you are, but Santa Claus has already started his annual worldwide trek, delivering toys to good girls and boys all around the globe. At this writing, the Jolly Old Elf was on his way through Northern Russia, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Want to keep tabs on the man in red’s whereabouts? Here’s a breakdown of everywhere you can follow Kris Kringle’s magical journey this year.
Bing and NORAD
Microsoft made waves in 2012 after it replaced Google as the official maps provider for the North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (NORAD) Santa tracker.
NORAD has been the unofficial official Santa tracking outfit since 1955. It all started due to an advertisement misprint that prompted children to call the hotline of the NORAD chief operations officer instead of a Sears-sponsored Santa. In the spirit of the season so many years ago, NORAD kept children updated on Santa’s progress across the world and a Christmas tradition was born.
