I’m kind of addicted to this site. The official tracking obviously doesn’t start until Christmas Eve, but the games in Kids’ Countdown are really fun, and I love the About Santa and About NORAD links. Lots of cool history about how NORAD came to be the official Santa trackers in the USA. News stations rely on their up-to-the-minute coverage of where St. Nick is now. It makes me wish I had some kind of NORAD-worthy skill so I could work there and volunteer on Christmas Eve to answer calls and emails.

Tomorrow is the last day of school before break, and the kids will be absolutely climbing the rafters. I’m putting on How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Rugrats Kwanzaa video (the best thing I’ve seen or read about Kwanzaa, by the way) and plopping any Santa believers at computers to play with the site.
