Welcome to our Online Advent Calendar series, where we’re doing 25 days of Christmas challenges to get everyone into the spirit! (Today’s video is from the 1994 version of “Miracle on 34th Street.”)   

Keep an eye out for Santa!

  • The Official NORAD Santa Tracker will be tracking Santa’s trip around the world, starting at 2 a.m. CST, Dec. 24. This year’s tracker will include almost-hourly videos from “Santa Cams” in space. (Kids can also call NORAD to get an update at 1-877-HI-NORAD.)
  • The Google Maps Santa Tracker also will be keeping tabs on the Man in Red today. Use the site to have Santa phone or email someone special.
  • Want to watch Santa feed his reindeer to get them ready for the trip? Check out ReindeerCam, a live video feed that shows Santa’s reindeer 24/7. (Get the feeding schedule here.)
  • It’s not too late to send a free video message from Santa! Just visit Portable North Pole, and follow the step-by-step directions.
