There are some great websites and apps to help you celebrate the festive season. Here are a few of our favourites
NORAD TRACKS SANTA
For most of the year, NORAD or the North American Aerospace Defense Command does a very serious job. They are responsible for “the detection, validation, and warning of attack against North America whether by aircraft, missiles, or space vehicles”. Eeek! At Christmas though, they do something much more important [!!] and they track Santa on his mission to deliver presents all around the world. http://www.noradsanta.org/
You can also get the NORAD app for your phone!
You can help raise funds for the NSPCC and order a letter from Santa for someone you love. You can include personal details and choose from one of three age categories so the letters match your child’s reading ability. The suggested donation is £5 and the letter will be delivered by Rudolph Mail!
Where else to find out all about the big man and all the hard work that goes into delivering presents than the North Pole? This site has just about everything including stories, games and puzzles http://www.northpole.com/
SANTA’S PORTABLE NORTH POLE
This is a little bit of magic! On Santa’s Portable North Pole, you can upload a photo and a few details about your children and Santa puts together a personalised video message. He checks whether everyone has been naughty or nice and you can have fun for grown ups too!
