Tracking Santa on Christmas Eve as RavensNation celebrates

WHAT'S TRENDING

December 24, 2012|By Adam Marton, The Baltimore Sun

Merry Christmas Eve, happy holidays, feliz navidad and happy festivus.  Hope you are snuggled up in front of a warm fire and not fighting crowds at the mall (or your family in the living room).

Rest happy with the knowledge that NORAD (The North American Aerospace Defense Command) is tracking santa's path again this year, a tradition that stretches back to 1955.  (Don't forget to check out the rival Google Santa Tracker.)  I guess it's slow at their office around the holidays too. 

As you probably already know, the Baltimore Ravens clinched the AFC North again this year, ending a losing streak and defeating the Super Bowl champions New York Giants. 

As the debate over gun control rages on, CNN is reporting that two firefighters are being treated for injuries after being shot at while responding to a fire in Webster, NY.
