The journey begins!  CLICK HERE: Tracking Santa site is live now!

On Christmas Eve you'll be able to follow Santa on the NORAD tracking platform closer than ever before.

A 3D globe will let you pinch and zoom to track St. Nick's whereabouts in real time.

And this year, Santa will have some extra security on Christmas Eve, a few U.S. military fighter jets. 

While the jets have been flying with Santa for a while, this is the first year there has been criticism.

But U.S. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a NORAD spokesman, said he understands the critics' point of view but disagrees.

Davis said the fighter escort is nothing new. NORAD began depicting jets accompanying Santa and his reindeer in the 1960s, he said.

The site is touch enabled and on Dec. 24th when NORAD starts tracking Santa, you will be able to follow his journey on the 3D globe and pinch and zoom your way to his many destinations.

Microsoft partnered with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), which has tracked Santa for 59 years.
