Seasons Greetings!

Happy Holidays and best wishes for a happy new year!

To track Santa on Christmas Eve, see NORAD’s web site at http://www.noradsanta.org.  In addition to English, several other languages are supported such as German, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese.

Every year, NORAD gets fancier and fancier.  This year, they are doing tracking in 3D, and for those who don’t want to or can’t go the NORAD web site, it appears they are offering iGoogle gadgets and tracking by cell phone.  See http://www.noradsanta.org for details.
