ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Where is Santa right now 2012? Kids via the Norad Santa Tracker 2012 are tracking Santa Claus right now as he leaves the North Pole. Children are beginning to wonder where is Santa right now, what time will Santa be at my house, and when will Santa Claus be at my home. But officials at Norad tell news that Santa is going to be on time. Yet despite bad weathers in some parts of the world tonight, Santa indicates to news that he is on his way, bringing lots of gifts and happiness to girls and boys around the world.
The Norad Santa Tracker has evolved dramatically over the years. Before Santa had his own app, before Rudolf was tweeting with his iPad, and before Mrs. Claus was recharging the hybrid sleigh, Santa was delivering Christmas gifts the old fashion way, with a pen and paper. But as Santa’s Christmas route has become more high tech over the years, the efforts to track Santa have evolved too.
Norad tell news today that the Santa Tracker 2012 is online right now giving live updates on Santa from December 24 to December 25 (click HERE). Santa’s path will head from the east to the west. As countries in earlier time zones pass first into Christmas, Santa will head through the sky. And as North America’s east coast states heads into December 25, Santa will be turning towards us.
Annually kids ask what time will Santa be at my house. In a news statement this week, Santa says he will be on time; but Santa is not revealed the exact time for each house. Santa tells news that he loves having children around the world track him every year via Norad. But the time he arrives at early person’s house has to remain a secret.
In a news conference earlier today, Santa said he got all the kids’ list of gifts they want this year. And if you sent your Christmas list to Santa via mail, text or tweet, he got that too.
After Santa covers the South Pacific, children in Asia, Africa and Europe will be next, NORAD tells news. “After that, he shoots up to Japan, over to Asia, across to Africa, then onto Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central and South America.”
Yet, despite a generally consistent flight pattern, Santa does often make changes based upon flight changes. NORAD reminds news to “keep in mind, Santa’s route can be affected by weather, so it’s really unpredictable. NORAD coordinates with Santa’s Elf launch staff to confirm his launch time, but from that point on, Santa calls the shots. We just track him!” Track Santa right now HERE.
