Did you know that Santa has a blog?! Yes, it's true! You can find it here along with lots of answers to questions you might have like "Why is Santa's coat red and white and not blue and green?" and "How does Santa get down the chimney?" It's very informative, so check it out!!! And you won't believe this, but the reindeers even have a blog! Check theirs out here.
Here's a few more of our favorite Santa sites we like to visit...
Santa.com - Includes Santa's storytime, Christmas activities, crafts, recipes, printables and music.
NORAD Santa Tracker - NORAD provides aerospace warning and control for North America 365 days a year. On Christmas Eve, they turn their attention to Santa, tracking his yearly gift-delivering journey from the North Pole. The Santa Tracker itself goes live at 6am EST on December 24th. In the meantime, you will find the unique history of the Santa Tracker, holiday-themed games (a new one released each day) and updates from the North Pole at www.noradsanta.org, the official NORAD Tracks Santa website.
NorthPole.com - Enjoy the joy and magic of Christmas in Santa’s Secret Village! You are invited to experience a traditional look at Christmas through the many free activities at northpole.com.

The stories and activities combine traditional feelings of Christmas goodwill with state-of-the-art computer technology—all richly illustrated with original artwork.
