Anyone with young kids (well, really anyone... young kids are optional :wink: )can track Santa's travels on NORAD's website:
We do this every year and my kids get a real thrill out of it. Plus, they get to see when Santa is getting close, so they know when they need to get to sleep!!!

The fourth detection system we use is the NORAD jet fighter. Canadian NORAD fighter pilots, flying the CF-18, take off out of Newfoundland to intercept and welcome Santa to North America. Then at numerous locations in Canada other CF-18 fighter pilots escort Santa. While in the United States, American NORAD fighter pilots in either the F-15 or F-16 get the thrill of flying with Santa and the famous Reindeer Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph. About a dozen NORAD fighters in Canada and the United States are equipped with Santa Cams.
Uh oh. If we're relying on the Canadians, Santa may never get here. :cry:
