Web trackers prove Santa travels fast to deliver gifts to kids.
However, there was confusion this Christmas Eve as two Santa-tracking websites - one sponsored by Microsoft, the other by Google - showed his reindeer taking different routes, the Independent reported.
At one point, the Microsoft-backed NORAD Santa Tracker showed the sleigh over Romania, having already delivered 2.8bn gifts.
Meanwhile, Google's Santa Dashboard had him over Madagascar with a mere 770m gifts delivered.
NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defence Command, began tracking Santa in 1955, when its phone number was erroneously printed in an ad featuring Santa Claus.
When children rang the number, an Air Force colonel began to give them news of Santa's progress. ( ANI )
