If you have little ones than you have to check out the Official Norad Santa Tracker. The history behind the NORAD Santa Tracker is very interesting.

It all started back in 1955 from a mistake made by Sears Roebuck & Company out of Colorado Springs. The company misprinted the phone number for kids to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the kids were actually calling the then, Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD), now NORAD, Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.”The Director of Operations at the time, must have had kids of his own, because he instructed his team to check the radar and see if Santa was on his way.

So began this fun tradition. Now with all the technology we have, you can just track Santa on the NORAD website.

What a great story! If you’ve never tracked Santa, you might want to start a new Christmas tradition in your home this year. Happy tracking!
