NORAD tracks Santa’s journey

NORAD tracks Santa’s journey

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) continues its decades-old mission of keeping track of Santa Claus and his reindeer on their journey from the North Pole to every home in the entire world to deliver presents on Dec. 24, Christmas Eve.

Santa will land his sleigh on each roof, drop into each home and leave Christmas presents overnight. NORAD, buried deep within a shelter in Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs, is the only organization in the world with the tracking capability to keep an eye on Santa’s incredible trek throughout the world.

NORAD’s mission tracking Santa Claus on Christmas Eve is in its 63rd year. It started when a local Sears ad in a Colorado Springs newspaper had a big image of Santa and encouraged children to call a printed phone number to speak with Santa. Unfortunately, there was typo and the phone number was that of NORAD. That number led directly to the top secret red phone that was only used for global emergencies. More phone calls rang and, once the men at NORAD realized what was happening, they began answering the phone to let the callers know the progress of Santa’s sleigh.

Today, in spite of the U.S. government’s partial shutdown this week, NORAD will continue its Santa Claus mission. Here is NORAD’s statement:
“In the event of a government shutdown, NORAD will continue with its 63-year tradition of NORAD Tracks Santa on Dec. 24. Military personnel who conduct NORAD Tracks Santa are supported by approximately 1,500 volunteers who make the program possible each and every year.”

Children may call NORAD Tracks Santa Operations Center at 1 877-HI-NORAD (1 877-446-6723) or send an email: noradtrackssanta@outlook.com. Visit noradsanta.org.
