He's made the list, he's checked it twice, and he's registered his flight plan with the FAA! Santa Claus is coming to town, but he's got quite a few stops to make around the globe before he gets to Central Texas tonight.

You can watch Santa's progress in real time thanks to this brilliant 3-D, interactive map from our friends at NORAD. Every year they focus their efforts on tracking the Big Guy to let all the boys and girls see how he's doing and to make sure his flight path stays clear. (Rudolph can't do ALL the work, you know.)

With this map, you can see Santa and his reindeer flying over a fully-rendered globe or switch to a free roam view to anticipate his flight path. That way, you'll know when he's close and it's time to lay out the milk and cookies and head to bed.

From all of us at Townsquare Media of Central Texas, may all your holiday wishes come true! Merry Christmas to you and yours, and to all a good night!
