Tracking Santa? There's an app for that

- NORAD’s Santa tracking countdown is live, but that’s not the only way to keep tabs on the jolly old elf this season. There are multiple apps for that.

Download the NORAD app now, then watch for 24 hours as Santa makes his way around the globe. The Portable North Pole app [https://www.portablenorthpole.com/en/] lets parents send their children personalized videos from the North Pole. The Santa’s Magic Phone [http://www.callingsanta.com/] app lets your children call, or even text Santa. It’s also a direct line for parents to let Santa know if their little ones are being naughty or nice.

If instead you prefer more old fashioned methods of communication, the U.S. Postal Service is here to help. You can receive a letter from Santa with an actual North Pole holiday postmark! Just send a stamped, addressed letter in a separate envelope by Dec. 15 to:

North Pole Postmark Postmaster

4141 Postmark Dr.

Anchorage, AK 99530-9998

Of course, once you receive your response, go high tech and share it on twitter with #LettersFromSanta.

Watch the video above to see how NORAD adds an extra thrill for Santa Claus watchers on Christmas Eve!
