After we reported about Google’s Santa tracker being up and running yesterday, NORAD too has begun its annual tracking of Santa. The website basically counts down the days till Christmas, and this time again, it partners with Microsoft to integrate Bing Maps to show the route of Santa’s sleigh through the globe.

The site has many games that get unlocked after you complete the previous one. It also has movies, jingles and holiday tunes around Christmas that keep kids entertained. The site houses an educational library which consists of the history of Christmas and Santa Claus. They even have a gift shop that sells NORAD branded merchandise.

Microsoft and NORAD have also released iOS, Android and Windows Phone apps, for on-the-go Santa movement monitoring purposes. On Christmas Eve, Santa’s journey can be seen through an interactive 3D globe on the site and app.
Google’s Santa Tracker also does all the same things NORAD’s does, although NORAD has been around for a longer time. However, Google has just built an Android app for the tracker, so you might have no other option but to stick with NORAD if you have an iOS or Windows Phone.
