NORAD is usually thought of as a protector of the Western Hemisphere, from nuclear and other attacks and intrusions. But this time of year, their role becomes fun for at least a day.

For decades, the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) has been 'tracking' Santa's progress as he delivers toys and joy to children all over the world. NORAD is buried under the mountains somewhere in Colorado, tracking virtually every aircraft, missile, satellite and more.

But you can, for free, arrange to have your children be able to watch NORAD track Santa's flight before they hit the hay.  In addition to tracking Santa, their website includes games, music, even a gift section!

It's a LOT of fun, so click here to get going on a rewarding and memorable Christmas event for your kids!
