NORAD tracks Santa.

MSNBC reports on NORAD’s plans to track Santa this year, as they have been doing since 1955. As the report informs us:

The military has taken on the task of checking up on Santa as a volunteer activity ever since 1955, when someone misprinted a Yuletide hotline so that it rang up Col. Harry Shoup’s hotline at the Continental Air Defense Command instead. When CONAD became NORAD in 1958, the joint U.S.-Canadian airspace monitoring agency inherited the Santa-watching job as well.
