Alexa Skills: Get Santa’s Up-to-the-Minute Delivery Schedule

To help make the Christmas season extra exciting for the kids (and some over-excitable adults), Norad has produced its own Alexa skill that provides pre, mid, and post Christmas activity.

NORAD Tracks Santa is Santa’s official tracker. On December 24th NORAD conducts a special mission tracking Santa across the globe and keeping him safe. Find out how many days are left until Santa begins his yuletide journey, follow him as he gets ready the day before his flight and hear his location as we track him across the globe on December 24th. You can also get facts from the Top-Secret Santa files. Only Santa knows when he will arrive at your house, but we do know he only arrives when children are asleep.

Examples of things you can say…

“Alexa, ask NORAD Tracks Santa, where’s Santa?”
“Alexa, ask NORAD Tracks Santa for a fact from the Santa Files.”
“Alexa, ask NORAD Tracks Santa, when will Santa be at my house?”

Where to get it: You can locate the NORAD Tracks Santa Skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: NORAD Tracks Santa
