Today's the day. The day when children, and their parents, can monitor Santa's trek around the world and determine just when they need to be nestled in their beds for the night.
For the more than 50 years some members of the North American Aerospace Defense Command have taken a break from tracking airplanes, missiles, space ships that fly in or near the United States or Canadian airspace to monitor a pilot of a different kind.
To help broadcast the jolly old elf's progress we will provide a window to NORAD's website right here on your local Patch site. Check back at 4 p.m. today to find out just how close Mr. Claus is to your house.
To tide you over until then, please enjoy the YouTube video produced by NORAD that tells the tale of Santa's 2010 journey.
