Area children have less than two weeks left to give Santa Claus their Christmas wishes in person. Santa will be at Beachwood Place Mall every day through Christmas Eve, according to Beachwood Place's website. Children can visit Santa in the Saks Fifth Avenue lower-level wing. The mall is marketing Santa's appearance as an opportunity for new parents to commemorate their babies' first chat with Santa with a photo package. Click here for package options. Here is Santa's schedule for the remainder of the holiday season: Have any cute or funny pictures of your child with Santa? Share them here!
Where is Santa now? Check his progress with NORAD
Has Santa left the North Pole yet? When will he get here? No need to check the skies of Beachwood tonight to see if the Jolly Old Elf is on his way. You can find out at NORAD Tracks Santa, a website that keeps tabs on Santa's progress with official military tracking equipment. The site also uses Google Earth for a 3-D look at Santa's sleigh during his journey. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) usually uses its high-tech tracking powers to watch for air and missile attacks. But on Christmas Eve, the government agency adds Santa tracking to its list of duties. It uses four high-tech systems to track Santa – radar, satellites, Santa cams and fighter jets. It's technical, so check out the site for the official explanation.
