Cool Apps: NORAD Tracks Santa

On December 24th, while we’re all snug in our beds dreaming of dancing sugar plums, one man embarks on the longest work day of his year.  Santa Claus makes his rounds from continent to continent, country to country, dropping off presents to all those who have been nice throughout the year (okay, maybe those who have been naughty too).   Guided by his 8 tiny reindeer, somehow, he manages to do this all in one night.  In total, Santa will visit over 100 million households just in the US on the eve of Christmas morning.   Now think about that multiplied by the whole world.  Pretty amazing.

So jump in on the fun and bring out the Christmas kid in everyone.
