Santa Tracker 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Santa Tracker! Because it’s now past 11pm on Christmas Eve the Santa Tracker is no longer live, but below is the final image (taken 11pm Dec 24 NZT) showing just how close Santa and his reindeer are!

At 11pm it has to be switched off – by law we have to do this before Santa arrives over New Zealand air space due to security reasons!

The weather forecast was mostly settled for Santa’s journey. Tracking over Alaska, then Hawaii, then twisting around the stormy parts of the Pacific Ocean.

The path that Santa took to New Zealand.

A very big Thank You to Family Beach Day (Free entry, January 15th, Takapuna Beach – part of Takapuna Summer Days) for helping make this possible this year.

From everyone at – we wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a fantastic summer ahead!

Hi Santa, I have been a little naughty this year but I will try very hard next year. I did LOTS of my homework and lots of writing. I hope you have a safe trip to all of the countries. I love you Santa! From Xavier (7yrs). Hi Santa, I have been a tiny incy weeny naughty this year, hope you have had a great flight to Christchurch. I HOPE YOU LEFT ALL THE BIG PRESENTS AT HOME and all the small presents at Aunty Surita’s house, Alexander (9yrs). Hi Santa, Alexander has REALLY been telling the truth lately and Xavier has been doing his homework! Alexander and Xavier’s mum

Dear Santa,
Merry Christmas! We left some mince pies and milk out for you and some carrots for the reindeer. I hope you have a very safe journey! I haven’t been a very good girl this year, but I promise that if you get me everything I want I will try to be good next year! Merry Christmas!

Hope VERY much that you have a safe journey over the Pacific. I will thank you (Santa, of course) in advance for the presents. Say Ho ho ho (Translation: Merry Christmas) to all the reindeer for me! (-;
