BATAVIA, IL — It’s been a tough year, and while few traditions this holiday season will go on untouched by the coronavirus pandemic, here’s one we can still count on — seeing whether Santa Claus is en route to Batavia with a sleigh full of Christmas gifts.
One way to track Santa is through the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, which keeps count of the number of gifts children who went to bed on time have received.
The U.S. military command charged with protecting the nation’s airspace also tracks Santa’s trajectory.
Kids can also keep their eye on Santa’s path using the Google Santa Tracker. As of noon Central Time on Christmas Eve, the tracker spotted St. Nick over Samara, Russia.
Another way to keep your littles amused is to compare the differences between the two trackers. You can find them below:
