If you have young kids you know how hard it is to get them in the bed on Christmas eve, which is imperative is Santa is going to stay awake to build all those toys that have washers and nuts and bolts, if you get my drift.

One of the things we did years ago with my kids, was sit in front of the desktop and track Santa’s travels via NORAD. You might not even know what NORAD is, heck I think the first time I heard it was in the movie War Games. Anyway, it’s a joint operation between the US and Canada responsible for maritime and aerospace defense.

But in between all the super serious stuff, they track Santa on his travels around the world. You can follow them on their Facebook page or on their site. But when last I checked, Santa was right here….



What’s Christmas Eve like in your house? What tricks do you use to get the kids in bed early so Santa baby can do his thing?
