Santa tracker 2014: Follow along with Santa Claus on his Christmas journey

SEATTLE -- Well, it's Christmas Eve and Santa is on his way.

NORAD's Santa Tracker is up and running, allowing excited kiddos to keep track of him all day long. Volunteers at NORAD will also spend Wednesday answering phone calls, emails and Tweets from children across the globe.

The Santa Tracker started in 1955 when a newspaper offered a phone number where children could call and find out where in the world Santa was at that moment.

The officer on duty at the Continental Aerospace Defense Command, which later became the North American Aerospace Defense Command played along, and updated kids on Santa's whereabouts.

These days technology helps children keep track of Ol’ St. Nick.  Updates are posted at and
