Does anyone else get a slightly childish delight out of the Norad Santa Cam videos ?

You go here , click on the Santa Claus icon, then click on the video.

Yes it's childish but I'm guessing children would love it. The NORAD people sound a little bored reading their scripts lol

1. Great if you have a party with kids.

Great for short attention spans. If there is a lull, or misbehavior, you can say, "Hey lets track Santa!" and they will all run to the computer with you.
--Did that last Christmas eve and we had a blast!

The wife and I are here alone this year, but we get to spoil the kids tomorrow when everyone stops by.

3. We used to go to a christmas eve party when I was a kid so I never knew about the Norad coverage of

Santa on the radio. Once I did as an adult I tried to get my sister interested in it, because she has kids, but to no avail.

8. I remember being mayyyyybe 3 or 4

and we lived in Atlanta and had this little B/W tv and my dad calling me to the living room to watch the local news tracking Santa on their radar. This would have been 66~67...I was mesmerized and that is still one of my favorite childhood memories.

I tried to get my kids into it but I don;t think they were ever as impressed by the technology as I was. They had handheld game devices with more pizzazz than some grainy kinda santa silhouette flying across a round radar screen. Rotten kids.
