Santa Claus is lost in a blizzard, and the U.S. military saves Christmas using the NORAD Santa Tracker.
A bit much? Tell it to Michael Keane, the author of “The Night Santa Got Lost: How NORAD Saved Christmas.”
While Keane’s story may be fictional, the NORAD Santa Tracker is very real.
Run by the military, the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command’s primary role is to help defend the United States and Canada. And every Christmas Eve since 1955, NORAD has tracked Santa as he delivered toys. The command even provides a direct phone line to Saint Nick.
