(NEWS CENTER) -- For those kids who can't wait for Santa to arrive, the North American Aerospace Defense Command has a Christmas treat.
Here are some things to know about the holiday tradition called "NORAD Tracks Santa".:
If you call 877-HI-NORAD, a live person will give you an update. You may also visit noradsanta.org, or on Facebook at facebook.com/noradSanta. He's also on Twitter at @NoradSanta, or you can download the app to your smartphone.
When we spoke with Bill Lewis from NORAD this morning, Santa was making his way over Fiji! His route takes him over the South Pacific to New Zealand and Australia before he heads to Japan and Asia. Africa and Europe are next, followed by North America and South America. Santa calls the shots, NORAD says they just track him.
More than 22 million people visited the Santa tracker website last year.
