The North American Aerospace Defense Command will once again be tracking Santa Claus as he circles the globe on Christmas Eve, offering up-to-the moment online updates on St. Nick's progress in a number of languages and using Google Earth and Google Maps to display his flight path.

While the actual "tracking" starts at 3 p.m. on December 24 (GMT +8), visitors to the NORAD Santa Web site can view last year's flight path while waiting.

If you're out and about on Christmas Eve, you can also use iOS and Android apps to view Santa's progress. Santa watchers can track his updated progress on Facebook, Google+, YouTube, and Twitter.

Just had a chuckle... in view of the recent revelations regarding privacy issues on Android and iPhones... does Santa have a legitimate claim for invasion of privacy if an arm of the the American Military is tracking his every movement once a year? And is Google, FB and etc. accomplices in disseminating that information?

Could be why one of the many Christmas Carols starts "You better watch out!"
