To rework a phrase from Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet, It's Santa Time somewhere ...
The annual journey of the North Pole's Number One Delivery Guy is underway and as this Christmas Eve moves through the day on the North Coast and into the evening we will offer up snapshots of Santa's journeys across the many time zones of the globe.
To follow the Jolly Elf and his team of reindeer you can find up to the second reports from the NORAD tracking stations across North America as they take note of stops along the way and where the flight plan is heading next.
The Radar and Satellite Feeds are live and ready to deliver news from this link.
Updates are also available through the NORAD twitter feed.
While a NORAD Tracks Santa YouTube page also features notes on the journey for today.
As well, while the youngsters of the Northwest and Southeast Alaska wait for Santa's stopover, you can explore the music, games and other features available from the NORAD Site Here.
Google has also been busy developing a page of entertaining fun for youngsters to pass the time until they have to head for bed and await Santa's arrival, you can check that page out here.
