NATIONWIDE – Santa and his elves are working overtime to get ready for his annual journey around the world.
And once again, you can keep track of his progress thanks to the folks at NORAD. They’ll be using powerful radar and other equipment to keep track of Old Saint Nick as he flies from nation to nation, delivering presents to good little boys and girls.
It all began back in 1958 when a child accidentally called what was then the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center, wanting to know where Santa was. The commander answered the phone and gave the child the information he wanted and that tradition has continued ever since.
Lt. Cmdr Ivey, U.S. Navy said “If your at home you’re able to track him to see where he’s going across the world or you can dial 1-877-HI NORAD and call our live operation center where we have about 1,500 people here throughout the day that will answer your phone calls and let you know where Santa is.”
On the internet since 1998, the Santa tracker site registers more than 10-million visits from 212 countries each year.
You and your children can check it out for yourself by visiting noradsanta.org or calling 1-877 HI NORAD.
