The tradition all began over a misprinted phone number in an advertisement in the local paper. The ad said, “Hey, Kiddies! Call me direct and be sure and dial the correct number.” When a young child called that December 24, in 1955, it went to the CONAD operations center in Colorado Springs, Colo.  Since 1955 NORAD has been tracking Santa, responding to e-mail, and answering phone calls about Santa with over 1500 volunteers.

If you have small children, check the NORAD Santa site out.

I am always comforted in the knowledge, men and women who may have to make decisions that could affect the future of the world, stay grounded with this wonderful celebration of peace and happiness!!!

I'm more impressed that they have the abilities to track a man who has the ability to warp space and time, yet still haven't found a way to track things in the Bermuda Triangle without vanishing completely.

Wow!  I didn't know an accident was the origin of this fun Christmas tradition.  Thanks to the wonderful men and women who make this Christmas memory all the more sweeter.
