High Tech, indeed! Santa Claus is Coming to Town and you can calculate exactly when that will happen. According to the North America Air Defense Command (NORAD), the jolly elf has already delivered more than 2,000,000 gifts to good little girls and boys.
If you want to follow his progress, view the 3-D map and live tracking program here. Weather forecasters say the team hauling all those toys and goodies – guided by Reindeer, Rudolph, one each, should have little problem navigating through any clouds that may cover the islands tonight. Apparently that lead quadraped has devised an ingenious forward-facing infra-RED beam that not only lights the way, but meets all FAA standards for obstacle and hazard avoidance lighting.
Since beginning this post, Jolly Old St Nick has delivered nearly 400,000 more gifts around the world. As of 8:53 a.m. HST, the sleigh is inbound to Madagascar. His 7,345-page flight plan – filed with the FAA and international agencies, will be recycled and used for letters to Santa in the upcoming 2015 Christmas season.
So, be good for goodness’ sake. Be kind to one another. Drive and shop with Aloha. Then, tonight, hang your stocking and say your prayers cuz’ Santa Claus is Coming Tonight.
Mele Kalikimaka, Joyeaux Noel, God Yul, Feliz Navidad, Buono Natale…Merry Christmas!
