The North American Aerospace Defense Command will take over 100,000 calls and it’s been a tradition since 1955.

It started when Colonel Harry Shoup at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center answered a call from a little boy wanting to know where Santa was. He received this call because a local department store had a typo in a magazine to call Santa at that number.

Since then the traditions has continued at NORAD.
You can call them at 1-877-HI-NORAD.

Children call also track Santa online at, or through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
