UPDATE 12:45 p.m.: Christmas — and Santa Claus — have arrived in Helsinki, Nairobi and Moscow. The jolly old elf is really racking up the miles. Follow his progress on this website.
Previous post: Within the past hour, Santa has been spotted over India and Pakistan — working his way west after dropping off presents for good boys and girls is Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand.
As it has done for decades, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is tracking Santa’s progress and hoping to help keep him safe.
