Santa is so hip! He has got his own app!

Called NORAD Tracks Santa, the app features a countdown the NORAD Santa’s takeoff, after which he starts flying around the world on Christmas Eve delivering presents. Once the Countdown is crossed, the app will let you follow the NORAD Santa’s flight around the world from right within your iPhone or Android phone. Just go to ITunes to acquire!

Merry Christmas from all of us at EMSS!
