NORAD's Santa Tracker

In the early years of the Cold War against the Totalitarian regimes of the East operating under the guise of Communism it was necessary to avoid any misunderstanding that might lead to nuclear annihilation for much of the world.

In order to accomplish this efforts were made to identify all Aerospace traffic.

Naturally this included Santa Claus, lest his yearly travels at high speed around the world on Christmas Eve be mistaken for a communist attack.

Born of this effort to safeguard the freedom of the West and avoid any misunderstanding is the Santa Tracking program.

/tongue-in-cheek

For several years now I have enjoyed watching NORAD (the North American Aerospace Defense Command) track Santa on December 24th.

This is alot of fun for the boys and Girls and I recommend it for all those with the twinkle of youth in the eye.
