It is hard to believe but Christmas Eve is just around the corner! We are less than 2 days away! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. If you are like our children they are full of excitement and anticipation! On Christmas Eve we have several traditions and one is tracking Santa! We love to follow him in action as it builds our kids excitement for Christmas morning.
For the sixth year in a row, OnStar is providing subscribers with the opportunity to follow Santa in route with a press of their blue OnStar button this Christmas Eve thanks to a collaboration with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Tracks Santa program. Families in the U.S., Canada and Mexico can learn about Santa’s progress across the globe. This is a fun activity for the whole family. If you are like us I am sure you have Christmas Eve Traditions. We enjoy making hot cocoa , loading up in the car wearing our PJ's and Robes and heading out to look at Christmas Tree lights. If you do the same then you are going to LOVE this service from OnStar. It is fun to track while we look at lights and simple to do!
Also, if you travel during the holidays this may make it a little easier so the kids aren't asking "how much longer" instead they can watch Santa in action! Anyone with an active OnStar subscription can request a “Santa Update” between 7 a.m. on December 24 until 5 a.m. on December 25. OnStar advisors will provide Santa’s location based Ole’ Saint Nick’s official route. This is a great way to build the excitement and just another reason why we love OnStar so much! If you currently subscribe then don't miss out on this special service from OnStar. It is sure to be something your kids will remember for a lifetime! If you aren’t near your vehicle - er, sleigh then you can call (877) 446-6723 or visit www.noradsanta.org to check Santa’s progress. For each call received, OnStar will donate a dollar to United Way for Southeastern Michigan.
Santa’s on social media too. Tweet @NORADSanta with the hashtag #Santa or #NORADSanta for his location.
We love that Santa has gone High-Tech with a High-Speed, Highly Reliable Connection!
Have you ever tried using this OnStar Santa Tracker before? We would love to hear what you think!
