Reindeer over the MoonNow that I look back, waiting around for Santa to deliver my presents was kind of a waste of time. I never knew exactly when he’d show up. Right at midnight? An hour and fifteen minutes later? I had no way of knowing! Kids these days don’t have that problem thanks to modern mapping and satellite technology.

Powered by Google Maps and NORAD military satellite-tracking technology, NoradSanta.org allows kids to track Santa’s departure from the North Pole right up to the moment he squeezes through their chimney, bearing gifts. No more wasting time waiting around for Santa. Do kids have it made these days, or what? Merry X-mas!
