Live Santa Tracker 2015

Final Radar Animation — View the latest and final radar animation of the night, as Santa approaches New Zealand!  This was taken at 11pm New Years Eve.

Using the very latest Radar Navigation System has been tracking Santa’s movements towards New Zealand across Christmas Eve.  (But at 11pm it has to switch off – by law we have to do this before Santa arrives over New Zealand air space which will be sometime just after midnight!).

From the team at – we wish you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Dear Santa,

I was wonder and hoped that you would be able to give some gifts to the less fourtnate children in the world! As I now they are out there! For my present this year I would like to make sure there is peace in the world and every one can spend christmas with their familys!

Love J x

Dear Santa, I probably have not done that well this year. I won a certificate for sportsmanship and my sister Jess won the top award for visual arts. Hope you love our cookies and we have done our Xmas tree extra special for you this year.

love from Rhen and Jess

yay Santa is getting closer. Safe travels Santa and Rudolph and all your reindeer. It’s been raining in Napier so I hope it stops soon for you. I want to stay up and wait for you but my eyes are getting sleepy. Don’t worry about our dog Rico Batman as he is real friendly. I’m so excited for you to come to our house. Merry Christmas Santa love Marley and Miki and mummy and daddy and Rico batman
