Not sure whether you want to do anything with help from Tech, perhaps, so it stands out somewhere, but every year, NORAD runs their "Santa tracking service" for youngsters.

See the web site > www.NORADsanta.org/ <

NOTE Tracking Santa starts at 07:00 UK time on 24/12

PS Their site uses JavaScript and Cookies.

From taking a look a while ago, it should give some "from the sky" view of Santa and his sleigh, and where he's delivering presents, worldwide.

Bump - for MNHQ to perhaps publicise the NORAD Santa Tracking site ?
