Good morning, Trackers!

We have been receiving a great many questions about tracking Santa online. Some of you do not seem to understand that this is not just another Santa tracking website. Some think that NORAD is a tool you will be using come Christmas Eve.

We remind you that you are an elf. You work for Santa. You track Santa for Santa.

What makes this site different than others out there is that you are tracking Santa through the North Pole. You send your reports TO flight command at the North Pole.

NORAD belongs to a government. They do not work for Santa. They use what they think works for tracking Santa but in reality they cannot keep up with Santa. Much of the information they provide is wrong. Did you know that last year they said Santa was in Africa when really he was in Mongolia?

This is part of the reason you are here. You help track Santa for Santa. You provide live reports of what happens in your neighborhood. Santa uses that information to know when to come to your neighborhood and how to get there safely.

You are free to use any website you like on Christmas Eve but please do not send information from NORAD and other amateur Santa sites out there to the North Pole. We have people here who monitor those sites. Often we have to send out information to correct what they are saying. They are so often very wrong.

Keep your focus, elves. You are elves. You work for Santa. We will tell you where Santa is on Christmas Eve as we do every year. But stay away from unofficial sites. They will only add confusion to Santa’s efforts.

Thank you for your work!

    I’m fine with using sites other than NORAD, but can we then make the official site easier to use? Last year it didn’t load on anything I could get hold of, so I used NORAD instead.
