Day 24: The Night Before Christmas

'T was the night before Christmas, when all through the house 
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The stockings were hung by the Chimney with care, 
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there…

Looks like we made it, the night of all nights is finally here. I hope that my posts kept you entertained, and helped to make this time of year even more special than it already is.  For now  there's only one more thing I want to share with you: The official NORAD Santa Tracker!

I'm sure most of you already know about this amazing project that was launched by the North American Aerospace Defense Command in the early 1950's  - but it has come a long way since then: from the tweets to the videos that show a CGI Santa flying over famous landmarks (occasionally  narrated by surprise guests such as  Ringo Starr back in 2003) the tracker is not only a treat for children. So stop by to see if Santa's on his way to you: NORAD tracks Santa

He sprang to his sleight, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But i heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,
 "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

Peace, Love and Mistletoe
