Tracking Mr. Santa Claus – List of all places he went in 2012

Santa Tracker World View

Updated on an hourly basis (till I sleep :P)

Ever since I knew that Google teamed up with NORAD to come up with an online tracker, I wanted to see it. But it always has happened I have missed it. However this time, I had someone special remind me about it.

The program began on December 24, 1955 when a Sears department store placed an advertisement in a Colorado Springs newspaper which told children that they could telephone Santa Claus and included a number for them to call. However, the telephone number printed was incorrect and calls instead came through to Colorado Springs’ Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Center. Colonel Shoup, who was on duty that night, told his staff to give all children that called in a “current location” for Santa Claus. A tradition began which continued when the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) replaced CONAD in 1958. [From Wiki]

This year NORAD choose to partner with Bing instead of Google to track Santa and Google instead has its own Santa Tracker.

Mr. Santa Claus

Below is the list of places Santa has already delivered presents according to the Santa Tracker.

Google’s Santa Tracker has flawed many times on the time so I had to check up the local time of the city and update it accordingly. I cant check for the presents though I found that many cities received 2138 gifts according to Santa Tracker.

And yes I am manually doing this, and have enough time to recheck what I have typed.
