NORAD Radar shows Santa passing over Durand area in 2014

Santa Claus has already delivered billions of presents today!

We've been tracking Santa all across the globe with NORAD since 2012, and you can watch as he and the reindeer make their way to your house!

Santa departed the North Pole at 2am this morning. From this page you'll be able to see him travel from continent to continent, country to country and, once he arrives in America, even state to state. In years past, Santa has typically arrived in Michigan around midnight on Christmas Eve.

From this page you'll also be able to access video clips from his journey and other special features, thanks to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).

NORAD first "tracked" Santa after a Colorado Springs newspaper Sears Roebuck & Co. ad that invited kids to call and talk to Santa mistakenly contained a phone number for the aerospace agency. Air Force Col. Harry Shoup was on duty on that Christmas eve in 1955, and instead of hanging up on the children that called, he checked the radar and informed them of Santa's location. NORAD, then known as CONAD (Continental Air Defense Command), has tracked Santa ever since.

Merry Christmas from Durand Now!
