The North American Aerospace Defense Command has several ways kids can track Santa and his reindeer for Christmas 2012.
For 364 days out of the year, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) spends its time tracking airplanes, missiles, space ships—anything flying near the United States and Canada. But on Christmas Eve, a team of volunteers spends the night tracking a very special pilot: Santa Claus. "We are the only organization that has the technology, the qualifications and the people to do it," NORAD said on its website. "NORAD tracks Santa, but only Santa knows his route, which means we cannot predict where and when he will arrive at your house."

Creve Coeur Police officers have joined forces with St. Nick in recent years to put smiles on the faces of patients and their families at Mercy Hospital St. Louis.
There was no need to consult NORAD's Santa Tracker Thursday about St. Nick's whereabots. All you needed to do was ask the Creve Coeur Police Department where the Elf-In-Chief could be found. Thursday afternoon, with several police officers in tow, Santa Claus went room to room at Mercy Children's Hospital in Creve Coeur, spreading holiday cheer to kids as young as 11 days old. Check out our photo gallery, featuring kids from Chesterfield, O'Fallon, Florissant, Clayton and Kirkwood, among others.

There, you can watch videos and check maps showing where the Commanding Elf-In-Chief has been around the world as he makes his way to Creve Coeur.
