The annual tracking of Saint Nick, aka Santa, Kris Kringle, etc… is continuing again this year with NORAD watching as the big guy takes to the skies. It started with a misdialed number some 67 years ago, resulting in a young child reaching NORAD, and receiving an important update. 1500 volunteers now take part in this tradition of tracking, all at NORADSanta.Org. Parents and taxpayers don’t pay anything for this, in the usual grand tradition of supporting the Jolly Old Elf in his amazing overnight travels.

For over 60 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. Follow Santa as he makes his magical journey!
