Where’s Santa? NORAD is tracking him here

For decades the folks at the North American Aerospace Defense Command have kept track of Santa Claus as part of their duties of watching anything that comes over the North Pole toward the United States and Canada.

We wouldn't want them scrambling the fighters and alerting the bombers for a blip on the radar that was just a sleigh full of toys and eight tiny reindeer. They have the answer to help countless parents with the kid question of the day: When will Santa be here?
