At long last! It’s time for trackers to get to work.

That begins with a process we call tracker check-in. This is where trackers get to clock in — to tell us they are on the job and ready to track Santa for Santa.

Why do we ask you to check in?

There are several reasons. First, we need to know how many elves in each sector are actually on the job. Many people sign up to become elves but not all of them work once they get the job. Checking in tells us that you’re there and that you’re the real deal.

Checking in also helps us in case we need to contact you for some reason. What if Santa needs help? We can’t always get to Santa where he is. But if we have a tracker elf that we know and trust, and he or she has checked in, we know who to turn to in case of an emergency.

Tracking check in will happen sector by sector. Please do not check in until your sector is called. This helps the North Pole keep track of thing easier.

Look for those check-ins to begin in the next few hours.
