Growing up, I remember watching the television closely on Christmas Eve to see if the news had any reports of Santa flying around the globe. Every now and then, there would be some mention of it, and my parents would remind me that if I did not get to bed on time, he may not visit Findlay.
When I had children, I looked forward to helping them find this same information on Christmas Eve. At first, there was a toll-free number to call to find out his location, but I imagine that there were millions of children doing the same thing because you were lucky to ever get through.
A few years later, I came across the NORAD website that was designed to track Santa's travels. With the proliferation (no pun intended) of newer technologies, it has become much easier to find out where he is. Checking it a few minutes ago, I know that he is on his way, and I am sure he is going to make it to Findlay.
To my kids and nieces/nephews, be sure to get to bed tonight! And remember, Santa prefers oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate - I know he has always eaten them at our home!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
