Where's Santa? Track Him Live from Dunwoody

The North American Aerospace Defense Command has a website that now offers a Santa tracker mobile app to follow the jolly man's magical flight.

They sent him their wish lists, sat on his lap, and left cookies and milk for his arrival. Now the only thing left for children to do is track Santa's progress as he delivers gifts around the world on Christmas Eve.

Thanks to the folks behind the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) website, families worldwide can now follow Santa's Christmas journey in real time.

The tradition started in 1955 after an advertisement for Sears Roebuck & Co. accidentally printed a telephone number for a special "Santa hotline."

Instead of reaching Kris Kringle, the number put kids through to the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Commander-in-Chief’s operations, according to a description on the NORAD Tracks Santa Facebook page, which has more than one million "likes."

In addition to keeping tabs on Santa's whereabouts, there is plenty to do on NORAD's Santa-tracking site. Check out Kids' Countdown Village, which has more than two dozen games for children to play.

Not near a computer today? NORAD's Santa Tracker is mobile, too. Download the Android or iPhone app and let your kids track Santa from your phone.

Merry Christmas and have fun!

Dear Santa, Please bring Dunwoody a new city council and a new city manager for a stocking stuffer! Merry Christmas....

Nothing like validation towards my (and many others) attitude in regards to the City of Dunoody: "DeKalb delegation snubs city" http://www.thecrier.net/news/article_63038476-4de0-11e2-996e-0019bb2963f4.html We are the laughing stock of North Atlanta!
