The Magic of Santa’s Sleigh

Quality Beats Convenience

There is so much to be grateful for this holiday season. One of the things the Glympse team loves and appreciates most is when we hear about the creative ways people apply our location sharing technology to do good in their communities. Whether it’s to add a techie twist to something traditional, or surprise their friends, family and neighbors – there’s a lot of imaginative Glympse advocates out there. You can bet the ideas get bigger and more magical during the holidays.

If you’ve ever wondered how Santa’s able to visit every house in the world in one night, you already know you aren’t alone.

If you’ve ever opined that there just must be a better way to track Santa’s sleigh on its route, well…you also aren’t alone!

Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard from fire departments and community organizations across the country and even the world who are using Glympse to help parents and kids keep track of Santa during their annual Santa runs. Some have been using Glympse to track Santa for years.

A special thanks to all the organizations below for making Glympse a part of their community’s Santa experience in 2017.
