Santa Tracker 2017 Google and NORAD Christmas App Games and more for your smartphone

Once you've done all that, head over to the NORAD Santa Tracker headquarters to explore the North Pole and play some games to help pass the time.

If you go to NORAD's website you can see where Santa is on a Google Earth-style map.

As if all that tracking ability were not enough, at 6 a.m. EST, trackers worldwide can speak with a live phone operator to ask about Santa's location by dialing the toll-free number 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) or by sending an email to noradtrackssanta@outlook.com.

She also said, get in bed by 9 p.m.to make sure Santa can deliver toys in our hometowns.

In addition to finding Santa's location, mobile app users can also learn more about the history of Santa and learn about Christmas and other holiday traditions around the world.

It all started in 1955 when a local media advertisement directed children to call Santa direct - only the number was misprinted.

The Eastern Air Defense Sector is a North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) headquarters unit located at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome, New York.

This year, children can track Santa through the website, noradsanta.org, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

New this year, on December 24, Amazon Alexa users can ask for Santa's location through the NORAD Tracks Santa skill for Amazon Alexa, and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.
