You know the holidays are coming soon when NORAD launches its Santa tracking website. Get real-time updates as to the big guy's whereabouts on Dec. 25th, watch videos, play games. They even have a 3-D viewer which is based on Google Earth. A great site to get you in the Christmas spirit if the snow, jingle muzak and mall decorations just aren't doing it for you.
And just in case your kids can't wait that long to hear from Santa, Canada Post launched their Write to Santa campaign again.
Full disclosure: My brother works for Canada Post although I doubt he actually reads my blog ;)
