In many parts of the world it is a new school year. We usually get a lot of questions and feedback from school teachers at this time of the year.
Many gather questions from their students and it is my job, with the help of a few others, to answer them.
It is a service we are happy to perform.
But I was reminded today that school classrooms are excellent places to track Santa.
Even though school is out for most people on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning we track Santa year round and many school classes follow our site.
We thank you for that. We encourage teachers and school club leaders to sign up at SantaTrackers.org as official organized Santa Tracker groups.
Santa tracking is, after all, an educational endeavor. Students learn geography. Students learn culture and traditions. And, of course, there is also the science of Santa to study as well as part of your Santa Tracking.
So don’t be shy, Teachers! Go ahead and register your class as official Santa Trackers. And ask us any questions you want.
Well, we might not be able to put Santa on a map right now but we can surely put you on Santa’s map.
Totally new and redesigned this year under the direction of Santa Claus himself this special website is designed to help Santa know where he has coverage before he takes flight on Christmas Eve. Some places will have lots of Santa trackers — some will have very few. Come place your mark on Santa’s map!
Just go to SantaTrackers.org and register yourself as a Santa tracker of any type – and you’ll go on the big map there showing all the Santa trackers in the world. By the time Christmas Eve comes around Santa will know exactly where he has folks helping him get around the world.
This is open to professional tracker elves from the North Pole, certified tracker elves from SantaTrackers.net, and even just fans of Santa who track Santa on their own.
It is an official North Pole website and it is, of course, absolutely free.
It will be a huge year in Santa tracking. This is just one little part of it.
The boys over at the North Pole News Department have put together their annual show recapping Santa’s flight from last year. You can listen to it on the player below.
Of course, long-time fans who come here to Santa Update know all about the Christmas Eve broadcast. Those news reports are covered here live every Christmas Eve.
But for the folks out there on the Internet this recap is getting passed around today on websites and social media and they are just learning what a special thing that broadcast is. There just isn’t any other kind of Santa tracking out there like it anywhere.
Elf Crash Murphy takes over the Merry Podcast for an episode of highlights. You’ll hear some of the best (and funniest) stuff from last Christmas Eve.
It is a great way to begin your Christmas in July celebration.
The Internet makes it easier to track Santa. But if you were to ask Santa how to best track him Santa would tell you to get a big paper map of the world and hang it on your wall.
A paper map gives you more freedom than peering into a screen on a computer or a tablet — or worse, a phone. A paper map will give you a better perspective about how the world really is.
In the old days, people used to listen to the radio and then mark on the map with a string showing Santa’s flight path. That method is still used in many homes, even though many others use the map like the one at Tracking Santa.
What happens if your power goes out? What happens even if your radio loses battery power? A paper map requires no power. So you can always see on it where Santa was last positioned. If you rely on just the Internet maps you stand a chance of losing Santa altogether if the power goes out for some reason.
No matter where you are in the world you can tune into Kringle Radio right now and hear the start of a 50-hour live radio broadcast of news directly from the North Pole.
It is the most comprehensive and merry Santa tracking available anywhere and it is Santa tracking like Santa wants you to have it – it’s fun, it’s commercial-free, and it’s all brought to you by the North Pole.
We tell you what’s happening with Christmas around the world as Christmas Eve dawns in the far South Pacific to when Santa finally returns home on Christmas morning. It is an epic effort of more than two days of coverage found nowhere else online or off.
