NORAD website and smartphone apps lets you follow St. Nick's every move
No need to check out the skies of Twinsburg on Christmas Eve to see if Santa Claus is really coming to town. You can track the Jolly Old Elf the high-tech way. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is charged with keeping the United States and Canada safe from dangers originating from the sky or space. For Christmas, however, the Colorado-based government agency adds one more important task to its daily list of duties. The agency will again provide its Official Santa Tracker that marks The Big Man's every move as he makes his way throughout both hemispheres. Google has its own Santa Tracker too. Included on the site is a countdown and activity page and a flight tracking system. Going to be out of the house? Don't worry, you…

Spread some Christmas magic (or laughs) by sharing those adorable (or scary) pictures of kids sitting on Santa's lap here!
There's something magical about seeing the look in a child's eyes when they peer into Santa's. Or — it's the look of fear and terror. Let's face it, sometimes the trip to visit isn't as pleasant as we all imagined. Either way, share some of the Christmas fun by posting your latest pictures of children sitting on the big man's lap. If there are enough submissions, the top photos will be shared in another story! Take a look at some photos shared on creepysantaphotos.com, for a good laugh or a shiver. To post your own photo, click "upload photos and videos" at the top of this story. Looking for hours and information about Santa at South Park Mall?

Bring the family to the Twinsburg Fitness Center this Sunday from 1-4 p.m.
With the first snowfall out of the way, hopefully your initial disdain for the winter season is gone too. Hopefully, because this Sunday, Dec. 4 the Twinsburg Fitness Center is hosting "Winter Wonderland" from 1-4 p.m. Children can see Santa riding in on his sleigh and have fun with crafts, face-painting, an assortment of rides and attractions. There will also be the chance to see Santa again, and get a picture with the jolly, old fellow, so make sure to bring your camera. There will be snacks available and it will also be a drop-off location for Toys-for-Tots and the Holiday Giving Tree. Cost is $1 per person, three years and older.
