What would Christmas be without children and Santa? Thank goodness the North American Aerospace Defense Command at Peterson Air Force Base will be on the job again. According to Navy Lt. Cmdr. Bill Lewis, NORAD has been tracking Santa global journey for 58 years. Volunteers take calls from children in eight languages.
The volunteers sign up for “NORAD Tracks Santa” for a good reason, Lewis said. “It’s the joy of the season in your heart,” he said. “When you get the first few phone calls from these kids and hear the innocence in their voices … if you step back and take it all in, it’s incredible.”
Live coverage is on the official tracking website (with Java/cookies enabled or smartphone). Works well with Firefox.The site had over 22 million visitors from 235 countries last year. Hope Santa visits every one at ASKNOD this year with good things.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
