How does the NORAD Santa Tracker work? by esme Q: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/index.html It's a well known site which 'tracks' Santa each Christmas Eve But if Santa's not real, how are they doing this? Is it made up? This is a genuine question by the way, people take 'tracking Santa' seriously, and I'm confused..

A: im as confused as you are, my best guess was that they are making it up

What is this Norad Santa Tracker? Does that mean he's real or what? by ­ Q: I mean, I see that on MSN and I'm speechless but does that mean that it's actuallly Santa flying on a sled with flying reindeers or what? I'm really confused.

Santa Tracker - Will I See the Sleigh In the Air?!? by ♥ meme ♥ Q: Hurry ! santa is almost at my state !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm using the norad santa tracker.. will i get to see his sleigh ????? my friend said that the people fly a helicopter around with lights on it ? i don't believe in santa by the way......

A: Due to recent intelligence, Homeland security believes that Osama bin Laden has either hijacked Santa's sleigh or created a replica to infiltrate U.S. soil. Any form of reindeer-propelled sleigh is to be immediately shot down by order of the president.

I know Santa is real, but is Norad Tracking actually acuurately where he is? by John Morrison: Shaman of Sexy Q: I'm 13 and a half and i know he's real, but I want to know if the tracker is correct. Please answer. GOD BLESS! All people who beleive in the spirit of Christmas like me. Thank You!

A: hmmm....i don't know....i'm also a teen and I believe. I think that if someone in your house doesn't believe than he won't come. He only comes to houses of true believers and that's why some of you caught your parents wrapping the presents, they don't believe and that's why they're signing "santa". but i think norad santa just guesses for the satisfaction of small children.

Do you have any interesting Christmas traditions? by -Alexis- Q: My family watches A Christmas Story every Christmas eve and we get to open one present. What about you, any traditions?

A: wow, i have to type this again! (i already answered a question like this) here we go! on christmas eve we invite my aunt, grandma and her husband (not my real grandpa), and my brother, sister and parents are there too. we have dinner and tons of desert, then we do gifts. my grandma ALWAYS gives us PJ's, and as soon as i open them, i run upstairs and get changed. they also wrap the gifts in newspaper and write really hard clues on them (including the PJ's, even though we know what they are!). you can't open your present until you use the clues to figure out what it is! it can take a while! then my aunt and i read the night before christmas, and she always complains when she gets "the hard page" :P we used to listen to the Santa tracker, before i figured out he wasn't real:( we always put out cookies, milk and carrots (for the reindeer) then on christmas morning, we open out stockings first, then the gifts. we hang around all day playing with our gifts, then go out for dinner at this huge buffet.

What are some good Santa clause apps? by Female Q: I'm trying to find a good app for my 3 year old about Santa for android. Somerthing to say he's been good or naughty and can say stuff. Thanks

A: Well, it's not an app, but try googling to Norad Santa Tracker on December 1st (that's when the site opens). Leading up until Christmas, they have fun games for kids (I still like to play them though, even though I'm almost 15), and then all day on Christmas Eve they show where Santa is. It's really cool, my 3 year old cousin loved watching it last year on Christmas Eve.

Should I stay up for santa tonight? by Rebecca Q: I don't know if i should stay up cause then i wont get my prestents, but if i dont i will never see him. And is Santa real? Please help me, AND FAST! Also is the Santa tracker true or false?

A: Of course, Santa is real. And you should never, ever stay up to spy. Go to sleep and dream of sugar plum fairies. As for Santa tracker - would Norad lie? I really don't think so. Merry Christmas!

Why do they have NORAD (Santa tracker) if he is "supposedly" not real? by Italy2013 Q: i'm confused whether or not to believe in Santa. there are things that make me thing he is real such as having NORAD but then i realize how crazy i sound. please help me with answering this question. i'm being serious, so thank you to all those who will give me good and honest answers!!

A: there are so many youngsters on yahoo looking at these questions, and i dont like being the one who will dash their hopes and dreams but so many others will do it in a nasty childish and spiteful way. they have NORAD to keep the dreams of children alive, its essential for growing up that a child has a healthy imagination and a worldwide belief in father christmas, the easter bunny and the tooth fairy keeps many children happy and sheltered from the death and pain of this world. i am sorry to say, but im sure others will tell you in a much nastier way, that father christmas doesnt exist, but there was once a saint nicholas who gave gifts to all the poor children, he was a true person and we still give and recieve to this day, so the spirit of togetherness and giving of gifts IS saint nicholas. in a way he does exist, but not as a physical entity

Does anyone else get very emotional at Christmas? by shorty Q: For some reason I'm always emotional at Christmas. The slightest thing make me want to cry for eg looking at the Santa tracker and seeing him in China made want to cry, all the Christmas carols make me cry, watching the kids get excited makes me emotional. It's always been like this even as a child. Does anyone else feel like this? It's a happy cry not a very sad one. lol. Merry Christmas all!!!

A: There are a couple things that always makes me emotional at Christmas: 1 - Christmas Eve service at Church - I did the Scripture reading for the 7PM service last year and almost choked up reading the nativity story from Luke. It's such a beautiful story and Christmas has always meant so much to me. 2 - Seeing the joy and excitement on my kids faces when they open their gifts on Christmas morning. It reminds me of all the great Christmases when I was a kid and it always makes me so thankful for our family and how blessed I am.

Who's gonna use the Norad Santa tracker today? by Deleted Q: I'm already using it.And Santa's recent video clip indicates he's in China.

A: Using it right now! Got 2 young kids!

What Are Some Christmas Topics That I Can Write About For My Blog? by Angie Q: I have a Christmas blog, and I write and share things that are Christmas related. Here are some topics I've already done: Recipes, Christmas Tree Themes, Stocking Stuffer Ideas.

what small cars are like the kia sportage? by Kelly S Q: i am 16 getting my permit in a week, i want a small car like the kia sportage, or glc tracker. My dad is buying the car for me but i have to pay it back, i want a used car that under1,000$. Looking for a 4wd, any helps ?

A: If you are seeking to purchase a car under 1k, then a sportage or tracker is good. The suzuki sidekick is another reliable choice, though it is really stupid-looking, and is not 4wd. Unfortunately, 4wd cars are generally more expensive to purchase and maintain, therefore presenting a problem. However, since you shouldn't really need 4wd unless you fancy icy or muddy terrain, I can recommend the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as they are reliable and not too expensive. The Hyundai Santa Fe and Subaru Outback are also good choices at a low price point. Hope I helped.

Is Satan omnipresent? How come he tempts and attacks people in all parts of the world simultaneously? by Ataraxia Q: Yea, I know he's got hordes of demons but I'm talking about attacks and temptations directly by Satan simultaneously taking place in all parts of the world.

Whats up with the NORAD santa tracker! How stupid is that? Is it suppose to make us believe its real? by I like cookies Q:

A: IK!!!! so my bro went on to NORAD and found out that santa was in NY and then he checked on a different santa tracking website and that site said santa was in Cuba so now my little bro knows santa's not real!!!!

How Do I Believe In Santa Again? by Q: I asked if Santa was real on here and alot of people said no. I know he is real, but you know how can I start believing again. Christmas isn't the same without him. How can I start believing in him again? Please help, and have a Merry Christmas! All of you are no help. Your stupid. Santa is real. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all. I hope you all DON'T have a good Christmas and I hope Santa knows you were naughty.

A: Ok to be fair i think i understand where your coming from. I'm 13 and i have known since 10 that Santa isn't real and now i don't get as excited as i used to and i want to! Maybe you should go on a few websites that let you email santa and then go on the Norad Santa Tracker to see how close he is to your house! Merry Christmas! I hope Santa brings you lots of presents :)

Santa is real? How is this possible? by DontHurtMe Q: How the hell is he real? people are actually taking him serious because they have santa trackers and shit? JUST TELL THE TRUTH!

A: ••• Yes, Santa Claus is 100% real... as real as you and me. ••• About 60% of the people you meet will say he does not exist. About 40% of the people you meet will say he does exist. Now, those 60% of people clearly don't believe. Perhaps the crazy thought of his existence is too magical and make-believe, and to them, it is clear and quite obvious that such a man cannot exist. Or, as they grew up, their parents did not believe in Old Saint Nick and that doubt of his existence spread right down to those other 60% of people. Now, for the 40%. All I can say is that people say "yes". And sometimes they have sightings and evidence to back it up. It's as simple as that. But you may notice that the ratio is not 50/50. More people don't believe, and this number of individuals grow each year. Now, I will admit that the idea of Santa Claus seems made-up or even childish. Even the fact that mathematically in order to reach all believer's homes he must enter 1,178 homes per second is a bit astonishing. But I'm not saying he is not real. Honestly, I am not sure if he truly does still exist or not. For me, there's a 75% chance that he does not exist, but there's still 25% percent left for the thought of accepting his existence. And I'm not going to stop believing until the non-real percentage reaches 100%, which I think will never happen. It is a fact that this man DID exist long ago, and did give poor children presents.But does he still exist and do this today? How can he? As a child, do you think your parents would sneak out and buy you all of those presents even if they couldn't afford them? Well, only if they (or you) didn't believe. In many families, Santa brings gifts to the parents as well. It's just very rare as parents, having a mind that thinks logically, do not often believe in a man like this. If someone says there is no Santa, he or she clearly does not believe. And what happens when you don't believe? He does not come to your house. There. A perfect set-up for someone to be sure that he does not exist. But if you don't believe, you will actually never know if he really does exist. If you do believe, he will come, but you may never have pure evidence that it was actually him, not your parents. However, people have said that they have even heard hoofs on the roof while in the same room as their sleeping parents. Also, food left for the reindeer is often thrashed about the yard like a true animal had eaten it. Sometimes children receive a mountain-load of gifts that their parents could not afford. There are even sightings of Santa, usually in the sky. Men from the air force have confirmed this. Yet other people always think that they are lying! When you don't believe, your percentage of likely-hood of his existence immediately drops to a 0%, where if you do believe, it should be between a 100% to 1%. Remember, you still believe until you reach a 0%. So my advice to you is to really do what you want. If you want him to be real, believe. If you don't, don't believe. Ignore anyone who tells you what they believe, because what they say is not fact... it is opinion. As we get older, we tend to loose faith in his existence, and eventually our default answer to whether he exists or not will be "no". This is shown in any TV show or Movie that denies Santa Claus's existence. If you search Santa up on Wikipedia or in the Dictionary it will most likely say he does not exist because both of those sources are logically driven. (By the way, children finding other's opinions in trustworthy sources like the internet or dictionary is one of the most common ways for a child to stop believing in Santa Claus). The real answer of whether he exists or not will still be present, but I think we will never truly know it. No one will ever have 100% accurate evidence that he does not exist, but then again, it is rather unlikely that someone will be able to find 100% accurate evidence that he DOES exist. It's a tricky concept to wrap your mind around, but if you think about it for a while, it will always come back to the same answer: We will never know. So, that is why I tell you to believe what you want. Do what you think is right. I believe in Santa Claus, and guess what: he HAS come. There; proof from a believer. And how likely is it that a non-beleiever will believe the believer? Well, the non-believer can't see Santa for evidence, so the believer in this scenario would be a little stuck getting the non-believer to believe, don't you think? Unfortunately, that's how our life is working now. It's much easier to get people not to believe than to get them TO believe. So, here's what's going to happen: If you don't believe, he won't come. If you do, well, we will see what happens. We will see what happens...

What's the best santa tracker? by monkey.c.monkey.do Q: My little sis and I were looking for a santa tracker for christmas eve. I wanted something that looked really real. Oh, and free. PS- I don't really like the norad thing. Do you know of anything else? Thanks.

A: http://www.santaclaus.net/SantaTracker.asp

who will be the most remembered in Christmas for the kids? Jesus or Santa? by santee c Q: for every 12th months of the year whose most remembered santa or jesus?

A: Well it sort of depends on what type of family you are brought up in but 99% of kids out there today will remember Santa more. I mean there's movies about him, pictures of him, a tracker, he brings gifts, everything. Whereas Jesus, even though he is our savior and the symbol of christmas, he's history. he's a story that is difficult for young children to understand which is why they will remember Santa. Once they get older though and they realize that christmas isn't JUST about the presents and Santa Clause, they will remember Jesus Christ more.

How dose santa get in to the white house ? by ☁ Just A Dreamer ☁ Q: ok so my cousin asked me a Q i don't know the answer to she wants to know how can Santa get in to the white house with all the guards and there no chimney ?

A: Santa has top-level Secret Service clearance. Plus, there MUST be a chimney. That place must have at least 20 fireplaces. Santa just goes down the chimney into the family quarters and leaves the presents under the tree, just like in our regular houses. Edit: This website says there are 28 fireplaces, and where there's a fireplace, there's a chimney! http://clinton4.nara.gov/WH/glimpse/WH_Facts/html/facts.html P.S. Your cousin sounds cute. Have you guys ever seen the NORAD Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve? It shows Santa's progress around the world. Your cousin might like that. http://www.noradsanta.org/

How does NORAD's "Santa Tracker" really work? by Montana B Q: I'm thinking they employ an algorithm that selects a location based on where in the world the time is between 9:00PM on Christmas Eve and 1:00AM on Christmas Day. I'm thinking of building my own "tracker" algorithm. I will run the algorithm a day or two before Christmas arrives so I can tell kids when "Santa" will arrive.

A: I think asking this in a technology section will give you a more precise answer, but my estimate is that it's just graphics - They create an animation beforehand that "locates" santa and they just let it run for a few hours leading up to Christmas.

Is it healthy for a 7th grader to still believe in Santa? by pinkcottoncandy09 Q: I babysit for a family and the child recently asked if the Santa tracker that they have on tv every year is real, the mom responded "of course it's real". At first I thought she was making it so the youngest one still believed in Santa but I looked around and the youngest child was upstairs. I don't know if it's just me because I figured out Santa wasn't real when I was in the 3rd grade and I think my brother was around the same age, no one had to tell us we kind of just figured it out. The youngest son is in the 5th grade and the eldest is in 7th. I seriously thought the mom was joking until she looked at me or reassurance that Santa was in fact real. I would really like to hear some thoughts on this. I'm not going to tell these kids that there is no Santa, I'm well aware that it's not my place. I like the idea of him being the spirit of christmas, that's a cute idea.

A: No it's not healthy. But it also is not your place to tell the kid otherwise.

Can anyone in Newfoundland Canada see Santa? by Sophos Q: Santa Tracker says he is almost to Labrador in Newfoundland.

Why is my computer shut down whenever i play a game? by Aidan Feliciano Q: Its not just the games. 1. My computer is safe and doesnt have a virus. i checked it for viruses and malwars and trojans. It also shuts down whenever im on the computer. I was using the NORAD santa tracker, but it just shut down.

A: Your power supply may not be sufficient. So, when you play a game or do anything demanding, your computer starts sucking up more power but if there's not enough power it'll just shut down.

Why did Santa skip over Iran on the NORAD Santa Tracker? by Ryan D Q: According to NORAD's Santa tracker (http://www.noradsanta.org/en/home.html), Santa completely skipped over Iran, a country with over 70 million people, about 0.2% of whom are Christian. He managed to visit every single country bordering Iran though. Something's not right. Is NORAD politicizing Christmas?

A: Dude. Seriously. You Don't think Santas gonna use stealth mode in that airspace?

Geek Kids Question: Is there a place to download Previous NORAD SANTA TRACKINGS? by kailord Q: I realize santa is a Fictional Character, But does any site have logs of a previous NORAD Santa Tracker to show when he: Departed from the North Pole? Reached City A,B,C etc.? Returned to his starting point? If not, what would be a good way to approximate the travel times?

A: I never heard of all that

How to keep the christmas sprit alive? by Miss Monkey Q: I'm 9 years old and my brother is 5 years old and he still believes in santa. Being the clever one i was when i was 7- i snuck on the computer and searched "Santa tracker" and i got articles saying he was fake. i played along that year but when i finished opening my presents my mom spill the beans :( My bro still believes and i don't. Any ideas to make santa more realistic to him?? I'm a really good liar, so anything will do iguess.

A: oh, that's sad. i believed until i was 11. i still wish i did. though, i read an article after i typed in santa tracker and it told me he was real. but anyways, i have a 10 year old sister who believes and a 3 year old cousin. it's generally easy, especially with the younger kids to have them believe. simply talk to him about santa and start conversations and be like "what do you think the elves are doing right now?" and on christmas eve ask him where he thinks santa is. although i wouldn't worry. on christmas morning when you wake up and see presents from santa, he will believe completely. i still do sometimes, when i see how my sister acts, and the simple magic of the christmas spirit, it's hard to think he doesn't exist. Merry Christmas!

What's with the I-rate people here, are parents abandoning the santa tradition? by Chibi Oka-san Q: I asked a question about the NORAD santa tracker and got nothing but hate. Does ANYONE believe in santa anymore? (I mean have the kids believe in santa?) BTW my question was whatever happened to the part of the tracker where you can put in your state and it will tell you when santa will be there?

A: I saw that question... and those answers are just plan... "Ugh" even though that's an understatement. Absolutely nothing wrong with having your kids believe in Santa, I did when I was younger and I still do (I'm 14 now) of course I know that he isn't real but it is still fun. ;) Sorry I can't help you with the Santa tracker question but if it's any consolation, those people are idiots. Now, people are relying TOO MUCH on studies and not what THEY want to do. Also, the US is becoming TOO politically correct, where if you do one thing, it leads to another bad thing.
