In a few hours, NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, will be tracking Santa’s progress as he makes his way around the Earth–even stopping at the International Space Station. It’s a tradition that spans many generations; from those who readied the house for Santa with in the time-tested analogue way: a tray of cookies and carrots by the fireplace, to the current generation who can follow him live online.
Why does this American-Canadian entity keep tabs on Santa? It all began with a misprint in a Sears advertisement and a little help from the inner children at the Continental Air Defense Command. See the full story at: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/why.html
