Where in the world is Santa?

Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2014 — If you or you little ones are wondering where in the world Santa Claus and his reindeer might be on Christmas Eve, the Lassen County Times has the definitive answer!

We’ve included the North American Aerospace Defense Command Track Santa countdown at the top of our home page — a way of tracking Santa’s movements around the world on Christmas Eve. It’s a service NORAD has provided for nearly 60 years.

Some visitors might be confused because the countdown program seems to begin almost a day early in our time zone. That’s because NORAD starts tracking Santa at 7 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Christmas Eve. Old St. Nick begins his long night delivering presents to children in the Pacific Ocean countries — New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and then he travels through Asia, Africa, Europe, and he finally arrives in the Americas.
